Welcome to the site. Sounds like you got a project up there. Do they have the MSF in Canada? Motorcycle Safety Foundation class. If they do, you might want to sign up so as to stay alive. Again welcome and have fun.

check out ebay periodically and you will find cosmetic parts there, sometimes at a good price. i've gotten quite a few parts there, including a carb that has worked out awesome. that carb got my baby back on the road for a hell of a lot less than the local bike shop parts dept and bikebandit.com.
