This thread is dedicated to aid members in finding businesses for parts, services ect ect.

If you want to recommend a business where you received good service or that carries useful parts, post it up and I or whoever is currently moderating the page will edit this main post with a list of the businesses and what they have to offer.

Please try to keep the chit chat to a minimum, makes post only related to a business (as a recommendation). It keeps the thread clean and easy for all to use without scrolling through multiple pages.

Guys I need new drum brake ratchets. I was going to try nappa jb or lordco after ChristmasView attachment 1370770 View attachment 1370769
I've never seen those before, what do they do... ;)

Terry at Lordco can likely set you up with some... he's got them for my other rig. You may need to get the adjuster separately from the brake hardware kit. Wherever you go, bring the old one for comparison... I've had parts counter guys try to sell me the wrong parts (usually when computer has incorrect info).

My mate has worked there for years. Always has some kind of option or idea if he can't find it.
Keep in mind, not many parts for cruisers, but sometimes I hit gold for a decent price.
Talk to Phil, anyone else is a waste of time. YMMV

X3 on Brian's auto electric.

most other parts I get stateside or overseas. Have yet to find "local" vendors or even Canadian ones that can provide any kind of service/price ratio that I would consider "value". Not willing to pay much of a premium for s***ty service. Rather spend a bit more (not always the case) and get what I want... sans BS

Cheers

Aqualu. I have a aluminium aqualu body on my 40 and love it! They build the bodies for the icon cruisers. they are great to deal with and will do custom work

Gozzard composites I have ordered hardtop pieces and doors for my 40 from there and wouldn't do it again. they wouldent use credit card and only use paypal. there was communication issues. my parts almost got sent back because I never got notified they had arrived at the shipping depot. I was happy with the product
