    Last week I shipped my AT from S. Petersburg to NewYork by Ro-Ro ferry. The big journey started but I missed one important thing. Honda have never sold AT in US. I am checking ebay every day but can not find aftermarket sprockets, and brake disks. Some kinds of disks are available but it is nameless product most likely made in chinese village. I prefer to get the parts from well known manufacturer (EBC, Breaking, Lucas, Sunstar, JT, etc) even it have been made in China. Arriving in New York on 19 Oct I will get the bike from the ferry and ride to the West Coast and then via Mexico to South America.
    Does anybody have a suggestions where I can buy or order AT parts in States?

    Alex,

    First, you should take a look at page 664 of this thread.

    Then, You could order from David Silver or Wemoto for delivery to a US address, or after you are sure of the part numbers, you can probably order most of what you need in the US at Service Honda. Things like chains you can buy here from most any on-line retail places.

    Hope this helps. Have a great ride. Dennis Martin

    Hey Hectoe,
    unfortunately I can not see you video. When I try to play it I only see a message, that this video is not allowed in Germany because of music from SME.

    Many problems appeared. So it is going very slow. Neverthless I am not in hurry, I am considering every detail. Until this moment I have these parts completed: red frame, front Excel wheel (rear in 2 weeks), front fork repaired, Wilbers shock. When putted on wheels, than engine control with black color finish, electrics, fairings,...

    Will see, when it will be finished. If any new pics, I will definitely post them ;)

    Yes, Youtube do not want to show the video in Germany, because of the music. I could upload the video to another service for you guys in Germany.

    It's looking great but still way too heavy.

    I agree. Only, what it has in common with AT is fact, that you can fit nobby tyres on it:rofl
