The only thing hard to find for these bikes are instruments and body panels.
I have bought several bikes by having an Airhead Club member in the area look at it. I also have looked for others - in one case bought the bike myself and told him if he didn't want it - I would keep it.
Oh contrare.... there are many Airheads in the Quebec area and if you join the internet club will have a wealth of support for your wrenching. Even folks from that wasteland below you will want to wander up...eh....or...we. The amazing thing about the airheads is they still make parts for them and there is a worldwide network of aftermarket stuff.
