Vanishing aftermarket for K12RS parts

I am a little biased when it comes to K12's but it appears the aftermarket on K12RS on the earlier years is slowly but surely starting to disappear I guess due to the age of the bikes and diminishing owners of these super classics.
I recently ran into a great site and had a chance to chat with David Goodyear, sales manager at Oberon Performance LTD. in the UK and they offer several machined billet items for the K12.

I ordered some black touring foot pegs and a new fuel cap housing and center (non locking) and these guys offer great service and a good product.

I encourage all K12RS owners to check them and get this stuff while you can.

I don't want to be rude, but I think we can live with it when this kind of products vanish from the market...

With a '97 I'm more concerned about Boneyard spares availability. I'm now finding parts are around the 2001 vintage, so availability is shrinking whilst my bike is getting newer - kind of reverse depreciation.

It's no good just finding the farkles when you need a tranni, exhaust or rear drive etc and the bike can't be ridden.

Maybe worth considering this project bike for spares?
