CB550F Project--Parts needed

Hey not sure who is going to read this but here it goes...

I have a 1975 CB550F that I am in the middle of a minor restoration project on. I am in need of some links and or locations where I can obtain some parts for the old warrior! I am looking for a fuel tank, valve cover with the tach gear drive and front suspension. I have already contacted forking by frank and I do not have the $$$ for that at this time. So, any advise would be awesome!

I just ordered some parts for my '72 XL250 from a place in Holland. They have parts fiches online for loads of old models.

Those carbs don't look bad at all (compared to some). That will buff right out

Anyway, you asked for links. These guys always shipped what I asked for: http://www.partsnmore.com/parts/honda/cb550f/?filters[fitting]=custom

The link is to a 550F specific, but you can click "Universal" and it will show a lot more.

I was going to say the same thing. Those carbs don't look so bad.

Hang around here for a while and you'll see what really lousy carbs look like!

Here's a place in the UK that I have bookmarked for my project, ongoing... and, hopefully you won't see something like this when you open your front brake reservoir.

The Master cylinder is not THAT bad... however, the Caliper is frozen solid! And thank you for the link, the more links for older CBs the better!
