Ed,
Try Moore's Cycle supply (W. Hartford), or type in a search engine "CtBikers" and it will give you the machine shop closest you. Moore's does know the Brit scene well. Another is, Maciag motorcycle in New Britain Ct, but I don't know what you are close to. I have some nos A10 parts, let me know.

Thanks guys
I will give Mooreís a try; I do buy some parts from him from time to time. I would be interested in knowing what parts you have, I do need quite a few.

How about the front end, anyone know how to tell if itís the right one?

Thanks
Ed
