Dead Bings

Looking for a pair of dead Bings, can be 32 or 40 mm, but I'd prefer 32's. Actually, Mikuni's would work, too.

Well, there's your problem...

Found the issue. Horns work, handlebar switch works, popped the shell off the 30+ year old relay, and discovered a small sea of gunge and corrosion :puke1 . New one should fix me right up.

Who wants ta know?

Just kidding. I'm not sure who you're looking for, but what's the job? Something basic? There's a lot of us living under rocks all along the coast who do our own wrenching; myself included.
