Good part shops

  1. Hey guys,

    Just got myself a CB250 1973. Ive been calling/emailing around Sydney and I havn't had any luck. Just looking for any places that could possibly supply parts for a bike of this age. In sydney or Australia.

    Initially i was looking for carb parts but i ended up fixing it but im just posting up for future reference as i do feel i might need to give the drum brakes an overhaul sometime soon...

  2. Interesting you say this as I've been looking as well but no real joy. Originally from the UK and you are overwhelmed with the availability of good parts suppliers and online resources. I'm in Sydney and have actually sourced a lot of stuff from Keith at Victorian Motorcycle Wreckers - very helpful and found them originally through Findapart.com.au. Sydney motorcycle wreckers in Alexandria as well. But haven't found a good new parts supplier
  3. Wreckers for parts like brake pads, findapart for hard to find parts. V.M.W. are very good.

    A lot of the ancillary stuff on bikes that old is UJM, a lot of common parts between models.

    You can usually find common bits on ebay or see if there is a website devoted to your bike, chances are there is, the Honda CX500 has more than one! They usually heaps of good info too.

    There will be specialist bike shops out there, but you will really pay for their spare parts. Do some legwork & save a lot of money.
