Bike Junkyards/Salvage yards

Recommended Posts

Hey does anyone know of a bike junkyard that is in the Columbus. I've gone to a shop here called rice paddy and they have some things I need but I'm looking for a 94 katana to salvage parts from. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I found some parts on Ebay, I need to get a lock set for the tank and trunk. Suzuki charges an arm and a leg for them. Just trying to see if I can get them cheaper. Along with some other misc parts.

Rice Paddy in Columbus

Doc's Place in Lancaster

Sharp's Cycle in Chilicothe

Cycle Recycle in Indianapolis

Green's Motorcycle Salvage in Louisville

I have no idea if all of these are still operational salvage yards

There used to be a huge number of motorcycle salvage places in Buffalo NY.

Sharps I've been to. They had an incredible number of bikes for parts salvage. Both indoors and outdoors.

It was very muddy, be prepared for that if you go.

I'm always prepared to hunt in junkyards boots in the trunk always. They have decent prices?

The part that holds the gauges is only 4.41 new. The three meter cushions are 5 bucks each. So maybe you mean the bracket under it.

used gauge bracket on ebay - 10 bucks

new ones are 32.38

Instruments, well, those are expensive and hard to find used.

Complete assembly even harder to find, and none on ebay right now. Except for the one that shows a picture of other parts. Hard to tell what is selling. Some sort of mistake when the sale was posted by the seller. Something like 1988 through 1994 should fit?

ebay gauge cluster

oops, here's a 92 and a 94... but dunno about which model Katana, there were two types?

1992 cluster - 145.00

1994 cluster - 99.99

I used Google shopping to find these.

Most of the ditches and fields alongside many of the fine Coshocton roads are filled with Katana parts, you should check there.

It's a long shot, but I'd try Safari Cycle in Long Beach, CA (http://www.safaricycle.com/). They do internet requests and are pretty reasonable with their prices. I got the Givi topcase on my FJR from a crashed Aprilia for $100 (they're almost $500 new). The actual showroom is quite a sight...like a giant room of bike fails. For used bike parts it's a matter of expanding your search everywhere.

No I meant the plastic housing that hold in the gauges mines cracked, can't seem to find just that part.

Yeah, I see now that it's out of stock and back ordered everywhere.

94527-19C00

Suzuki molding, meter

This part is on backorder.

List Price: $4.41

Your Price: $3.68

edit: Try Suzuki SpeedSupplies.Com. They might have it in stock. Probably the first place to look for Suzuki parts.

I like cheapcycleparts.com. Good for Honda and low cost shipping from Indiana.

If it helps any, it's the same part on all these bikes:
