Need trim parts

I also need some trim parts. The black trim that goes all around the bike with a silver stripe down the middle, I need the piece that goes across the rear end of the bike. Also need the rubber foot pad for the passenger\´s left foot, and, I need the square lock off of the optional storage box that goes on the rear of the bike. It say\´s Honda on it. Be sure and check the oil!!! I got a nasty piston slap on the way home from a Jethro Tull concert due to low oil. I thought the oil indicator on the instrument panel would let me know if it was low (slaps self!) But it doesn\´t. It works off of your mileage. \\ Anyhow, since I had my engine apart, I did most of the Doug Simpson treatment. I milled the head down & bored it out & put in a bigger piston, ported & polished, and filed down the weld bead on the exhaust pipe, and put a Malossi belt & pulley weights on it. Didn\´t do the cam & springs though. But it really moves! It\´ll burn rubber & pop a wheelie (with a little tug on the bars) Don\´t know what the top end is yet, still breaking it in. But all in all, I\´m very happy with the added performance. Wish performance parts were easier to find. I bought the Elite strictly BECAUSE it already had a strong engine, as oppoaed to getting a 50cc and hopping it up. But there\´s plenty of 50cc performance parts and almost NOTHING for the admirable 250 Elite. What a shame!
