I recently bought a 1978 suzuki fa50 on craigslist. it is missing the key slot, it starts w/out it. it is also missing the back rack along with backlight and blinkers. How expensive do you think these parts would be and to get a motercycle shop to install it for me?
There is NO sense having a shop install parts for you on any old model bike. Buy the used or new replacement parts and do the swap yourself. A shop will charge you big money to work on any older bike.
You only need a modicum of tools to perform the vast majority of jobs on most bikes.
