Get yourself bike trader, out tuesdays fortnightly I think? Loads of breakers in there

Ebay - Looking there at the moment myself

Motorcycle news - though not alot of breakers

Join a R1 forum - check there classifieds, put up a wanted topic

General lucky search on google, found one but too far

Check out the classifieds here, not the main one but the one on the Z-cars section?

:D

I was gonna say the other way round? :mrcool:

More sun means more bikers which means more bikes being ridden which means more bikes being broken :dozing:

I'm a biker myself so I'm not anne-tie-byke, just waiting for an engine....

:D

I believe so - my 10 quid membership got me 150 quid off an engine and ancillaries and a few other bits. :dozing:

Just adding to Roofless' info. Try here: http://www.locostbuilders.co.uk/

Malc has good feedback and advertises his stock quite regularly on the forum.
