WHere to get parts for my 1985 Bridgestone?

I just scored a circa 1985 Bridgeston 600 road bike off eBay, and I'm pretty sure I'll need a few replacement parts just to get the fit dialed in. Before I go pouring through the 2 pages of the "Classic & Vintage Links" thread, can anyone point me to a source for things like variously sized quill stems for threaded 1" forks, or rear hubs for 126mm dropouts, etc? I'm not so concerned with them being "period-accurate" identical replacement parts, I just need to find stuiff that will fit the bike.

Thanks.

One source I've purchased Nitto 1 inch quill stems from:

They usually have more lengths than those listed.

Alll specialize in new 'retro' parts, often the same brands that would have come on high end bikes in the '80s. Look out of the Nitto Pearl stem.. sort of like a non-super-tall version of the Technomic Deluxe...

Another eBay source is the seller "jonesbikes". They have some NOS Campagnolo, Shimano & Cinelli parts available at good prices. Don

Or, you could always just tell us exactly what you're looking for, here. Most of us have a pile of quill stems for 1" steering tubes laying about. I've got 7 or 8 myself - mostly Japanese, and all in need of a good polishing.

Well, Peter White has proven to be a goldmine, so thanks again for that suggestion. Before I hit him up for one more item, I may as well ask here: Any suggestions for a lightweight silver-colored 250mm or longer seatpost in 27.0 diameter?

If you have one of those really long 60mm SR stems I'd like to hear about it

Is "Core" the seller's name/eBay user ID?

Core is the parts manufacturer. I'll see if my ebay records still list the seller.
