    There are a few servi-car sprocket covers on Ebay right now. It just depends on what year you are working on. Also, Throttle Masters in Chicago used to have a lot of servi-car parts.

    4 fingers Bob. This bike was been in the same family since it was new, until I bought it 5 years ago. So I don't think that the tanks were replaced.
