Hi All
I'm just about to start on another resto, this time is a CT1B. Over here in the UK its difficult to get parts for these early Yamahas and the shipping costs to the UK are really expensive. Was hoping someone in the US might allow me to have small items shipped to them and then forward to me as a single parcel. Would be greatly appreciated. Kind Regards Tim

There are companies in the US which provide that service.......
I have not used them but I do have the same "shipping costs " problem to Australia. I seems to have got out of control in the past 18 months.
eg - 3" rubber "O" ring for my RV waste water (could be put in a normal envelope ) $US60 SHIPPING !!!

Hi Tim - Love the green ones, I have one myself that is next in line for restoration.



I’m located in So Cal and would Happy to consolidate and ship your parts if it gets another green one on the road.
