Vintage motorcycle parts can be purchased online through part specialty sites such as Old Bike Barn and Johnny's Vintage Motorcycle, as well as on auction sites such as eBay. Part availability for vintage motorbikes varies because many parts are obtained through salvaging and not from manufacturers.
Old Bike Barn offers parts for both American and Metric vintage motorbikes through its website. Parts are organized by bike type, then by part type, such as battery box parts, foot peg parts or seats. Listings for all available parts contain a professional picture of the part along with its full name and description, as well as the price of the part. Users can also search the site for specific parts based on keywords if the exact name of the part is not known. Customers can also rate and review the parts.
Both private sellers and parts retailers list parts found on eBay. Each part is sold on an auction model, in which an initial price is established as well as a set period in which the item will be sold. Some items also contain a special price that allows buyers to immediately purchase the part without having to wait for the sale to end.
