There’s a special tool that searches eBay for any part your bike could need.
If you’ve ever needed to look for parts for your motorcycle on the Internet, chances are excellent that you’re probably already well acquainted with eBay Motors. Within eBay Motors, there’s a neat feature called eBay My Garage that makes searching for parts for one specific model even easier than just typing a year, make, and model into the search bar.
When you go to My Garage, the text explains that it’s “Your one-stop shop. Find parts, accessories, and merchandise just for your vehicle.” How well does it do at filtering out the noise? It’s honestly impressive. You’ll most likely get a range of new and used parts and memorabilia suggested to you, and while there will always be some universal-fit options in that list, most of it tends to be specific parts intended to fit your vehicle.
It’ll save you time and frustration next time you’re looking for that crucial part.
Let’s say you have a 1969 Honda CB750. When you input that information, the first thing the eBay menus ask you is if you have a diecast engine or a sandcast engine. Depending on which you choose, you’ll see different parts that suit those options, such as a selection of carb rebuild kits, gaskets, and seals.
From specialized, model-specific tools you might need, to handy kits for cleaning your carb jets, it’s a simple matter to pull together easily sortable lists of parts that fit your bike in a short amount of time. Shop manuals, hardware kits to replace any bolts or screws you may be missing – you name it. Don’t forget those all-important decals that you’ll need to finish your project off right – they're there, too.
While there are plenty of aftermarket parts on offer, there are also plenty of genuine OEM parts available, too. For example, new-old stock is very much a thing with vintage Honda bikes, and particularly with a model as well-loved and iconic as the CB750. If you’re the kind of person who loves seeing vintage packaging on your vintage bike parts, you may even dig up some of that here, too. It’s like a nice little aesthetic bonus you can admire both before and after you make use of the part inside.
Finally, if you’re looking for a little enthusiast merchandise for your CB750, eBay My Garage also pulls up things like vintage advertising posters, T-shirts, keychains, and other memorabilia for a given model. While different sellers may list different items at different times, applicable items should come up in your My Garage search any time they’re available.
The eBay My Garage is a one-stop marketplace centered on whatever particular bike you’re searching for. Whether you need parts, accessories, or memorabilia, My Garage will deliver exactly what you need. Happy wrenching!
