Best sources for Brompton Parts

I bought a used Brompton off Craigslist, and am really excited to restore it to its new glory...

Where do Brompton owners buy parts? What are the best sources, please?

I'm thinking EBay, Brompton, and the hardware store -- curious if anyone has any leads/suggestions, please.

I'm in Los Angeles, CA.Thanks.

I use perennial cycles in Minneapolis because:
I like their website because it shows pretty much all their Brompton stuff.
their prices are competitive
they are friendly and will give good advice over the phone
extremely knowledgeable about Bromptons
there are no Brompton dealers in 250 miles from me
and, I buy several things at the same time, sprockets and tires being examples, to cut down on shipping
However there must be many good shops in your location.

The above recommendations are good .
Clever Cycles in Portland Oregon is also a good source . They are the largest independent Brompton dealer in the USA .

There's a Brompton dealer near you called Ride LA. My Brompton dealer is Al and Donna at PortaPedal in Tempe AZ. They are dear friends and honest people.
