Looks like you'll be wrenching, not riding this summer!

For vintage nuts, bolts and screws....I haven't tried these guys but their stuff looks pretty accurate.

    No need to hide your frame VIN, i know the missing digits (Z1F-**2*2*) :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
    I rember your bike/frame, it had a bend rear end or swing arm or so...
