Neil, if it were me I'd keep a pair of timing belts, carb rebuild kit, starter rebuild kit, fuel pump, & water pump. As well as plugs. There will always be most parts available on the aftermarket. Here is a link that you will find very useful.

I try to collect the high dollar parts, but at discounted values on ebay. It they auction too high, well there will be another deal later.

ECM, Fuel Pump, Rotors, Generator, Starter, Carbs, Tires, others. Not that I have all these parts, but then I have many other lower dollar parts also.

Everything is high at the dealer, and a lot of the aftermarket part are high too.

Shop around and buy when you have the urge.

electrical things like pulse generators that allow your bike to run are critical. alot of electronics, tupperware & year specific parts will get harder to find.

It's a home built trike, frame up construction. 350 Chevy motor, 700 r 4 tranny & a 6 inch drive shaft turning a posi rear end. Rad is mounted in the very rear with 2 fans for cooling. It is built with a weight ballance that will not allow it to spin the tires or pull a wheelie. the result is zero to 60 miles per hour in seconds. it pulls your hands right off the bars.

this model is not my creation . the man sitting on it built it. i made a similar one 20 years ago which looked better but not ballanced as well as this one.

The hardest part is getting it to pass inspection. welding must be certified by a ticketed welder etc.
