BSA parts in PDX?

Is there any British bike shops in Portland anymore? I'm restoring a 441 Victor.

A couple of years ago TSS Motorcycles bought up the last of the inventory of The Sandy Bandit, might give them a try.

I use to work for the bandit back in the day. Cliff is an interesting guy. He's still living.

I'll have some time to check out TSS this week. It's nice having a bike that parts are fairly easy to get unlike a 1985 Beta.

I wonder what ever happened to that shop on Lombard, near Kenton.

Next time I get my Oregon Vintage Motorcycle newsletter I'll look for some vendors for ya. The guy that bought my B50 SS should be pretty hip on where to source parts, as he restores BSAs.

Edit: here's a link from the OVM site that may be helpful:

Interesting he is, he's pissed off a lot of people in his day I still see him at the PDX liars club now and then.
