Exclamation just being cautious

have any of you guys ordered from oldbikebarn.com? I need to buy new air cut off valves/coasting richener diaphragms and they have them for 22.49 ea verses 39.06 ea over at ronayers.com. seems like a really good deal just dont want to have to wait for weeks to get them or never get them mailed to me. thanks a lot would not have a clue with this bike if it wasnt for this site. Thanks Jason

It looks like chemical deterioration. Maybe alcohol oxygenated fuel or PO cleaning rubber parts in caustic carb cleaner? I`m not sure.

Have you check the prices at cheapcycleparts.com ? Lots of folks here say they are the cheapest.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
