Welcome Bill, I hope you find one soon. They are not that common in Canada, but you may be able to get one shipped from the UK. The main parts suppliers in the UK do supply customers worldwide.

Welcome Bill, if you do manage to find one of the 75-ish made for Canada you will have electric start unlike the standard UK bike-good news. You will however, as per standard UK spec , only have drum brakes See the forum Suppliers' details- they ship worldwide

Welcome to the forum Bill,

Good luck with your search.. The US has Harley Davidson MT500e's which might just be more available than the earlier Armstrong MT500..

Keep us all posted on what you find..

Hello all.
My name is Steve Cooksley.

I am 61 years young and am a very keen motorcyclist.
I have a few interesting bikes around me including an old Triumph Bobber, Harley Nostalgia ( bought new in 1993 ) a pretty rare Ducati Sport.
I am an active trail rider ( Yam WR 450 ) and am currently building a Rickman Metisse, although that is a little slow going!!
I had a MT 350 a few years ago and had to sell to fund another project, I am looking to buy a real up together MT350 to do the Witley 100 on as the Yam can be a bit of a handful when I get tired. I remember my old MT being pretty soft and easy to ride, lowish seat height and super reliable.
Any help will be much appreciated.

I am in the Hampshire area, but can travel for the right motorcycle.

Many thanks,
Steve
