    Price is a consideration but buying online doesn't feed your neighbours. The money earned in your community is gone and so are the jobs the flow of money creates. I rather help pay for the mechanic at Joe's garage to retire then help buy another Rolls Royce for some internet mogul.

    I can't disagree Brent, but in some cases what we need on these old bikes isn't locally available - and in my case, that's true most of the time unfortunately. The local Honda shops, both north of me and south of me, have pretty much zero interest in the vintage market, they're busy selling disco bikes to all the young people and the noobs who see YouTube videos of trick riding on the street and want to be like them (many of whom end up crashing and dying due to inexperience). I've asked at 3 different Honda dealers spanning from Crystal River to Tampa with Wesley Chapel in between, covering about 60-70 miles area, and none of them stock anything nor have the interest in looking up anything unless you walk in with a part number... and then they still seem completely disinterested. You can ride your vintage bike to their store and they're so disinterested, they won't even go outside to look at it

    That's pretty much the same experience I've had with the local shops here also. Not to mention that most of the mechanics at these shops do not have any experience working on vintage bikes either. Some have never even seen a carburetor.

    ...and then the local store orders straight from CSMNL and charges you with a mark-up.

    I use them for most of my small parts needs and occasionally some of the larger ones. I mostly buy from their ebay store, but have ordered from their website as well. Shipping is always very fast, and they seem to be on top of their operation from what I can tell.

    I've found that their eBay store can be higher priced - I've always bought directly from their website while cross-checking their prices against others and they come out the least expensive in most cases

    Sorry for the late response ... been doing exams ... blah. I am for sure going to check out the guys at west end cycle once I get a change to get down there... I also have some buddies at Reds motorcycle in Orangeville who are great to work with. Lots of knowledge and super willing to help. They will be doing my tires and helping me with fork seals. Great to talk to a person and have your money stay local!
