Salvage parts
« on: November 26, 2012, 03:11:49 AM »
I am restoring a bike that was dropped. Is there any source for used parts? Please don't tell me to google it or look on ebay, that's where I started and what brought me here. I am needing parts for a 2011 C5 military. Thanks.

Used parts?  Post in the wanted section here...

There are plenty of cheap new parts though.  NfieldGear.com -- I recommend calling them, the website isn't the greatest.  Hitchcock's has just about every part imaginable too (hitchocksmotorcycles.com).

  Depends on your location.  RE's can prove to be rare some locations.

Never seen another RE while out for a ride.

Happy hunting.

I would say Royal Enfield USA is a source, however I'm beginning to wonder...  My dealership in Michigan has been waiting since early September for some pieces to finish up the restoration of my dear Fiona ('12 C5 Special, knocked over by a whitetail deer on a rampage), and there doesn't seem to be any hope in sight of getting the stuff.

(And yes, Kevin; the Service Mgr, Bryce, has been in contact with your crew (probably Tim, but I don't know for sure) many, many times. Apparently we are all waiting for Chennai.)

I will tell ya one thing: I am getting pretty damned sick to death of waiting for OEM parts from wherever-the-hell-they're-coming-from...
