Dealerships, and ask if they have anything in their backroom..LOL...I found a 1974 Honda CB360 at a Vespa/KTM dealer about a year ago...I was there checking helmet prices, I struck up a conversation with the owner...I mentioned that my father had several Honda CB's when I was growing up, and that I would love to find one...He walked me to his backroom and there it was...1974 CB360 it had a fairing and trunk that had never been installed on the bike straight from the 70's...The bike needs carbs rebuilt and some elbow grease...I paid $200.00 and took it home...Once home I opened the trunk and found two brand new lollipop signals and mirrors, also new coil paks and points...More in new parts than I paid for the bike....Ever since then I always ask about if they have anything not on display...

2009 V Star 650 Classic...Willie and Max Revolution saddlebags...Saddlemen Explorer Seat...Cobra Round Bar Standard Backrest...Life is Good....
