As was said accessnorton.com is an excellent resource

Thanks for the feedback and the link to the site. I'm an Airhead owner, so know my way around a wrench. To be honest my main concern is that I am about 75% of the way to making a BMW cafe racer, so this would be a somewhat redundant bike. While it would have two seats vs the one, I would always be longing to give it some Dunstall or Manx garb, thus enhancing the redundancy. The main thing is that it's my dad selling the bike, and if I have to I will buy it to keep it in the family. I guess it could sit in my living room (and be taken out occasionally) while I finish the cafe...
