Looking for gaskets for reed valves

Anyone happen to have four reed valve gaskets that s/he wants to sell? Project bike could use some new ones before she goes on the market.

Thanks!

well, if you get them cheaper because of this then, "Happy Birthday Buddy"

See my post in the Goat's Belly (How Rednecks Get-R-Done), it will explain this...

Cindy, do the reed valve gaskets have a steel reinforcement like a head gasket does? Or could you just cut your own from a sheet of gasket material? I`m just thinking out loud here, as I`m not sure how much heat that gasket material is exposed to. Good luck in the search.

I just heard back from the seller on ebay, looks like they only have one. You can get them for $2.19 each at cheapcycleparts.com, just look under cylinder head cover for the part number, which is 1109A for the gasket. They charge about $11 for shipping, but when you can't get them anywhere else, at least they have them. I buy a lot of parts from them.
