Vintage PE400

I posted the same question in the Thumpers section, but thought to also ask the vintage racers here.

I just got a 1980 PE400 from a friend to begin a complete restoration. I am totally new to vintage building so can someone please guide me to a good online oem parts source?

Also, how would I know if mine is a PE400 or PE400T? The tag on the fork before the VIN # indicates PE400, but I am hoping someone can school me on the differences between the two models so I can be certain to order the correct parts.

Any PE400 racers here that can help out a noob?

Thanks in advance

Word on the street is that NORRA may be part of a 3 day rally in September that goes from Mexicalli to Ensenada. It would be a combined CODE & NORRA event. CODE is a Mexican promoter who puts on "smaller" off road races in northern Baja.

Bike details now settled and going to sign up this weekend. I'm guessing from reading just because I'm riding a 450 I don't have to sign up in the Rally class do I? I will have a 6.3 gal tank but pretty far from a Dakar quality rider, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn last night. Just want to make sure I don't get it right before I sign up.

There's now a poker run option being added back to the rally. Just as much fun and adventure, less pressure to go fast. :) Details are here:

A good Catholic boy, who's maned after a nun and always needs loads of prayers.

The Blue Nun found a good home in the LC Garage!

Enjoy the day, Grimmy
