That's the one M'Boy... beautiful bike. Huge seller in the UK along with the Fireblade. You should have no problem finding parts.

Ha! Have you tried to restore a 30 year old Japanese bike lately? The "discontinued" parts category gets bigger and bigger. And that's to be expected given the huge number of models in the 70s and 80s that only lasted a year or two. At least Japanese companies don't have to pay the ruinous inventory fees that helped destroy the Brits. Otherwise there wouldn't be any parts at all.

I was thinking more of swap meets and what-not. Agreed finding parts for even a two year old Japanese bike is difficult and spendy.
