hi there, welcome to the club, pop over to the intro section  for new members if you intend to hang around. (many people seem to post a question and never post again)

Yambits and wemoto websites are pretty good for many small parts/perishable parts (brakes, cables, tyres, chains) and dedicated tools. Bigger parts, fairings,wheels, tanks, forks, instruments then you're going to be looking on ebay or similar auction sites.

As with all bikes there will be 'rare as hens teeth parts' these are generally the exhaust system and  certain engine and suspension parts, keeping your existing parts in good order or repair is the only way forward, or these  bikes get sold on (often with these pending problems)

Remember, the bike is nearly 50 years old and so will these bigger parts be. Over the years "new old stock parts" have been slowly bought up by those that also needed them, they (the shops) would not have replenished them.

You'll find that there's generally not a big enough call to get parts remanufactured unless the bike has a large following.  My bikes are 1975 and 78 so i have first hand experience of your situation. Hope this is helpful to you.
