Kudos to you young sir ............................. life was a lot easier for me as an 18 year old - plenty of cheap parts [ Triumph, BSA, Enfield, etc.,etc.  ;D] and I missed military conscription [ which had just ended ] - by the way keep your head down.

I've sent parts to various peeps in Israel in the past few years - if there's anything I can look out for you just let me know. I'll be happy to search for parts, consolidate here and send them to you.

Thank you very much!! I'd really appreciate that!

I've got a bit of a problem with the motor hanger. They're all rusted and I want to soak them in vinegar but they still have the rubber bushings inside of them. I started prying them out but stopped to do a little research and found out that they're impossible to obtain. So I'm basically asking what should I do?
Here's a couple of pics of what the hangers currently look:



These are the parts I'm talking about:

Can you have them bead blasted? Vinegar will degrade the rubber. Another option would be to wire wheel them.

just paint them if you must and move on but there is nothing wrong with them and they are not even visible
its best not to start fixing things that do not need repair

Cool!  Any progress? 

Life eventually gets in the way...but the bike will always remain!

Yeah I ended up using a wire wheel on them and turned out pretty well. I'll post a pic of them later today.

Ok so I thought I was insane sanding pieces of aluminum over a bucket in the living room but after seeing the final results I'm blown away and it justifies the hours I've put on them. I still have a lot of sanding left but it's good to see what you'll achieve eventually to get you going.

Nice work on the polishing. I'm currently polishing a few bits for my 350, takes a time and effort but result is worth it.
