Need barrel and key for 1973 CT3 igntion swtich. #1
New here, I just picked up a 73 CT3 with an ignition switch that is missing the barrel and key. Would anyone happen to know where I could source the parts? I know it's a long shot that someone might have them, but I thought I'd give it a try. I attached pics of what I have.

Thanks.

Welcome! from the UK.

Perfectly reasonable to ask here and someone might well chime in with one.

If you haven't done so already, get all nice and familiar with the Partzilla website. As well as being a source for parts, it will also show which other models used that part - just click on the part and scroll down a little. I have attached below a link to the relevant page for your bike's ignition switch.

Good luck!

If you can show pictures of the wire connectors and list the colors or at least the total number of wires I might have a whole switch assembly.

Sounds good, thanks. I just acquired the bike with a knowing a limited history on it. So, I'm checking the basics now like spark, etc to see where I am with that. Don't need a key switch to run it from what I understand.

Is that that a YZ in your profile picture?

Nope... its a 1991 RT180 that a neighbor had and is in near-new condition. They were street legal in the rest of the world... I've collected the factory lighting parts and hope to have it made street legal soon with mostly OEM parts... just too many projects!

That pic was taken in Hungry Valley by Dave Meis after I broke off the rear fender :Ugh

P.S. there's a key switch on ebay with a broken mounting bracket... $20 plus shipping. Has key. Probably would be perfect for you... just a key is about $10

I'll have to check out the one on ebay then, thanks. I don't really need the switch now, I can trouble shoot what I need with out it.

I restored a 1989 YZ 250 a few years ago, it was a $150 box of parts and a rolling chassis when I got it. 8 months later, it looked almost like a bike that came off the showroom floor. Sold it last year, was a fun bike.
