Am I getting ripped off for these?

Am I getting ripped off for these?

Hey there,

I recently saved a poor old 1960's DBS bike that has a SACH Torpedo rear hub, currently trying to get in back into cycling order It is missing all the little components to install the hub, so Im looking to buy a snap locking ring, some spacers and the frame clamp...

I would suspect these would be pennies each, but the only place I can seem to find is on ebay where they are like 5 or 6 each and then 6 postage?!

SRAM Spare for "i-Motion 3" with i-Brake snap ring 710845141430 | eBay
SRAM Spare for "i-Motion 9" with coaster brake washer 710845215209 | eBay
SRAM Spare for "i-Motion 3" with Coaster Brake tube clamp, 22mm 710845711466 | eBay

Could anyone recommend a better place to find little spares like this? (preferably in Europe!)

Thanks!!

Also... am I right to assume that a SRAM snap-ring/washers will fit a SACH torpedo??

Always when you pay for each part will you pay more. Is there any hope of coming across a sonar bike or something with and appropriate hub?

I would call around to bike shops. Someone must have that stuff in stock, either the SRAM bits or the original F&S. Nottingham being Raleigh territory, I'd try finding a shop in Germany, Netherlands, or Denmark, Sweden....

If you were in the Seattle WA area, I'd suggest you try this place:

I would definitely hunt around a few shops that have been around for a while. I recently built up a French bike from the 70s (a PR 10). The prices for the small parts I needed from eBay were crazy. I paid very little locally to buy those parts.

I thought the snap ring was the same as original Sturmey? Identical cogs suggest the same diameter ring.

Thanks for the advice! I ended up finding the bits at a reasonable price (€15 posted) on an online website, I measured the diameter and I think the lock ring is just a standard size as mentioned. But it would be great to find a shop in Copenhagen that stocks this sort of stuff as I have a few bikes im working on, great tips thanks.
