I was sent the below a little while back and it had been buried in my in tray on account that I wanted to get a better links resource happening on our website than the current (by making a suitable suggestion to our current webmaster of course!) However what have I done? Nuffin! So here's the info for any help it may be to people as is.

Old Italian bikes parts suppliers

In recent times, for reasons unbeknown to me, my name has been given as a source of parts suppliers for old Italian bikes.  Partly to provide an answer to these requests and partly to aleviate the onset of memery loss that comes with age, I started a list of parts suppliers and services vailable locally and internationally which I now provide to all CIMAA memebers.

I should point out that the list has been collected over a few years and is biased towards Ducati and MV Agusta.  Unfortunately I don't have all the information to access some of the businesses (web address, location, etc) mentioned so you may have to do some chasing.  It should also be noted that the list is in no particular order and that while some specific parts suppliers are listed they may also supply additional parts to the specific ones mentioned.  It may also need a bit of an update.

Some I have used and some I know little/nothing about.  It is worth exploring each site even if it is not related to your particular marque as often parts are interchangeable or suitable for different marques.  Also visit the links of each site.

really good sites for info:
   (beveldrive Ducatis including manuals and parts suppliers). 
    (beveldrive Ducatis)
