hey, i've opened this thread to make a list of useful suppliers for things i've found that are hard to get.

for instance, if you have a conical or disc brake OIF BSA or triumph, you might be required to safety-wire the nuts on the fork caps for competition. they're a bitch to drill, but you can buy them pre-drilled from these guys:

https://www.aircraftspruce.com/catalog/hapages/drillnutsnas509.php?clickkey=3100426

these are UNF 5/16-24, and are very expensive (i've bought them somewhere else for less . . . )

but they're here, expensive but available.

there's lots of other aerospace stuff in here, including the EZ Turn petcock lubricant, which john healy recommended from this site, which is how i found the nuts.

please feel free to add to this thread with contact info you have for specific suppliers for things that you think might be helpful to people, not just competition stuff. camloc fasteners, pre-sized bronze bushings, all sorts of stuff

tbese guys too

http://www.aluminumspacers.com

i have a 40mm dry belt drive on a T120, and the belt rubs on the stock cover. i bought a handful of half-inch spacers in two sizes and longer screws (UNF), and set the cover out with a gap all the way around. better for cooling too.

they'll sell you one or a thousand. i just buy enough to get to the first quantity discount.

My first stop for metals in small quantity, bushings, viton sheet rubber, stainless fasteners in a variety of alloys, and various bits, is McMaster Carr. They ship very quickly and have been an excellent resource for me.

Matt Hilgenberg at Speed And Sport is a great source for vintage offroad race bike stuff, machine work, and restoration services. A example would be a 18 tooth Triumph sprocket (57-4784), that Matt is modifying for me to accept 520 chain for my current project.
