Restoration

My friend is restoring a 1974 BMW (not sure of model) and he needs some parts. Where would be the best place to look for them?

Thx for the help,
Scott

When I restored my wife's '73 toaster tank R75, I found much info/sources/help at the Airhead Beemers Club: www.airheads.org

Try this site for Bench Mark Works in Strugis, MS.... They restore BMWs from '75 and earlier.. Vech has a '25 that he rides... Also have a museum there.
