Union Cycle Salvage on Long drive might have some KZ parts, as well as On the Border Cycles in pasadena. They used to have a huge junk yard in the back with old hondas/kawis. They built a new show room but the I think the salvage yard is still over on Shaver.(not sure)

Ofcourse, ebay will have a ton of this stuff. Google it.

union cycle is ur best bet, but know exactly what you are looking for and take good pics of it before you go down there if you don't have the part on hand!

Definitely check with Tommy (owner) at On The Border. I used to work for him back when it was Pasadena Cycle Supply (20 years ago) on Shaver and yes, we had a really big salvage section. I'm not sure if the old bikes are still there or not, but I'm sure he can point you in the right direction.

If you go to Union, you'd better have some time on your hands because very little is organized, and you better know what it looks like because even less is labeled. They have a ton of old stuff though.

If I were looking, the first place I would go is Sam's Cycles in the Heights. PM Chris (Romeo36) here and let him know what you're looking for too.

I'd go to (in this order):
Sam's
Union
Houston Cycle Salvage (Pasadena)
