what parts do you wish were still made?
« on: February 18, 2015, 04:31:54 PM »
If you could get a part made that has not been available in a long time, what would it be?

Example: a low cost gas tank made in aluminum or steel for a v11 sport/lemans?
How about a carbon fiber hugger or bikini fairing like on v11 café sport?

1995 Triumph Speed Triple
2004 V11 Cafe Sport

1999 Confederate America GT
2011 Ducati Multistrada 1200s

How about those nice, cast alloy foot peg holders that were on the 80's Moto Guzzi SP models as well as the Le Mans III.

 I cringe to think how I would replace these unobtanium parts if the need arose!

The beautiful billet dipstick I had for my Sport 1100.  If anyone knows of one that would be useful for a Breva, let me know.

I'd like to see someone repop the Eldo gas tanks. Price on those has gone nuts. BUT you did hit on the hang up, no one wants to pay what it would cost to tool up for small batches of obsolete parts.

Lots of Loop stuff. Early battery covers, fenders (stainless this time would be nice), tanks as Lee mentioned, front fender braces for all of the variations (disc and drum), less expensive bearing/disc carriers than what Moe offers, oil pump for the gear drive engines. Probably more I can't think of right now.

If anyone is wishing for the rubber intake elbows as on round-fin 949 cc bikes such as the SP and G5, I'm working on having them reproduced.

I think that Evan Willcox has done a tank for the V11. I believe that the Tank Shop has one too but not exactly the same.
