    G'day Guys,

    It's Dan here from down in Australia. I've been trying to get in touch with Anderson Vintage Parts in Medford, Wisconsin. I've been ringing during business hours - no answer (& left messages). I've also emailed with no response.

    Do / have any of you guys traded with them or know if they're still trading? :ear


    Cheers,

    Dan. :D

    Any other leads will help. Andersons are listing parts that I can use for the restoration of these two little memories:

    Above: 1984 Suzuki RM80 XE (79cc) version. I've had this since I was 14. (Fortunately) I could never bring myself to selling it. Above is picture early on during strip down. All the iron is with the painter, wheels getting rebuilt, etc.

    Above: 1992 Suzuki RM80 XN (79cc) version. This was the model I lusted for as a kid. It's in need of restoration, but was the most original version I could find. Remember that colour scheme?? Some people thought it was rediculous. Well, I just thought it was damn terrific! :evil


    Aside to all that, this is my regular adventure ride:

    Hey, I also live in Australia and I'm interested in Andersons vintage parts to restore my 1983 Suzuki GSX 250.

    I"ve been following this thread for a while and have recently became a member to see how the situation was going.

    I've heard a few bad comments about this company dated back around 2002 and i was wondering if they are still trading?
    and if they are a legit company selling parts and not just taking the money?

    If anyone can tell me another place to find old suzuki parts it would be greatly appreciated

    thanks

    we paid them a visit. there is a barn full of parts and nobody around. we talked to the local county guys that knew them. the andersons were living in Texas at the moment and return seasonally. we have a contact number for one of the brothers....he may dig thru the warehouse and look for some parts....but basically their hobby became a business, then it became a hobby again...:lol3

    Anyone heard from them again, or did they just bail? They have so many parts you just can't get anywhere else.
