For those of you (un)fortunate enough to own a 1987 Honda Elite 150D, I have a good source for plastics! This isn't the cheapest, but for those who need that part!!

While the 1987 Elite 150 Deluxe was only sold here from 87-88, Honda kept the body style in Europe and Asia until 1996! Known as the Honda Spacy 125 JF03 (JF02 is the 84-96 model).

For Japan:
Use https://www.google.co.jp/ to search for the part (translated, unless you can nihongo it), or, go to http://buyee.jp/yahoo/auction. The Japanese use Yahoo Auction way more than eBay, and they have an English page. You'll have to register, and the layout can be a bit confusing (the site seems to have stuck with it's 1999 design), but they cater to international buyers, so you can do away with folks who don't want to ship. It’s an different setup because of international shipping and customs. The seller ships to a clearing house, and Buyee re-packs the parts for shipping. You also have the option of package consolidation to save on shipping costs, as well as buying extra packing for more fragile goods.

In Europe:
https://www.eBay.de is awesome, and the Brits have a bunch of parts as well, https://www.eBay.co.uk

Just got my first score in from Yahoo Auction Japan! The nearly unobtainable Speedometer Cover. In excellent condition, no busted tabs, no cracks.

Just to see what would happen, I paid for the extra packaging:

It came in a heavy duty box, wrapped in bubble wrap, which was wrapped in heavy bubble wrap.

Probably paid too much with extra packaging and all, but everything you find on eBay is trashed. For me, well worth the $67 total.
