Best places online to get parts from
« on: 14.02. 2010 20:43 »
Im sure allot of you out there like me get some of your parts online, take ebay for example, or recently SRM have joined the club (wish you could buy there whole catalogue online)

Unfortunatly, I only know only decent places in the UK, but have moved to USA a few years ago and here is not any well know places or their websites are not user friendly.
Take Rabers in California for example, you have to type every part number in that you need and Ill be there all day.
Leigh classics doesnt even have the price for the spares.

There is also my local place about 45 min drive away, Wes Scott Cycles Inc http://www.wesscottcycles.com/parts.html it doesnt even have a list of parts.

online is great but i'd talk to Mike at Rabers (Bob Rabers son) directly for parts needs  -I've known Mike and his dad for 25+ yrs and they are great guys and usually have what you need - mention the part and mike will pull it of a catalog so you don't necessarily need the pn# ,

if you do call them, tell Mike that Mike Gray referred you too - him and his dad have some good stories of me and my hoodlum youth terrorizing the neighborhood, including my bike (trident at the time) going up in flames in their parking lot (yikes!)

I have used Draganfly, found them to be great.

All ordering is from part numbers.

Have ordered from description with other providers with very disappointing results.

Dragonfly is pretty good, sadly its all the way in the UK and am looking for a place more closer to home in Florida or USA in general.  As I said before "I only know only decent places in the UK"  *smile*
