NSW How to find a basket case?

  1. 20 or so years ago I came across a trashed '74 Bonneville 750 T140V and restored it as my major project for the Industrial Technology subject I was studying in my final two years at high school. It had lots of parts missing and hadn't been running for a number of years, but she was beautiful when I was finished.

    I've got a major itch to do it again, but haven't been a part of the bike world since that time so don't have any contacts I can ask. Does anyone have any tips on where I could look to find a bike that fits the bill? I'd want something a bit older, with a bit of character, and parts not impossible to come by.

    I regret selling that Bonny, but as a poor student living at home, my mum was on my case as it was sitting in the garage unregistered and I didn't have the cash to get registration. I'd love to know what happened to her...

  2. Gumtree usually has heaps of project bikes, often ones which are half-finished, if you don't mind fixing up someone's mess
    Alternatively these people are wreckers, but they also have bikes in various states of disreopair for sale
