I was actually looking at them a while back, a friend who served in WWII loved them nostagically, and he loved the one he rode, but he was in the
military at the time, so it was easier to get parts.
I had only decided on a different company due to the ease of getting replacement parts. I may be mistaken, but the newer models might be fuel
injection for emission standards, and they still use drum breaks; this might have changed since I last looked at them.
This doesn't mean I still don't love them, i'd still love to own one, but not as a workaday bike. I love the look of them. It's more of a cafe bike
compared to say, Harley Davidson.
Look around your area for a RE dealer, and check him out to see if he can bring in parts.
