Raber's Parts Mart

Raber's Parts Mart

So I'm sure like most of us in this industry have heard the sad news that Raber's Parts Mart in San Jose, California will be liquidating there entire parts and inventory.

I was in disbelief when I heard this news because Raber's Parts Mart has been involved in our vintage British motorcycle community for decades. Raber's Parts Mart has provided our community with valuable and rare spares, craftsmanship and also knowledge that many company's can't do today.

Although Raber's Parts Mart and CBS are in the same industry and catering to the same customers (competitors) I still wanted to personally express how I feel about this.

A major blow to our industry

No one likes hearing when company's retire or call it quiets. Especially when ones name and company has been around for ages while folks depend on them.

Today, I feel as if the vintage British motorcycle community has suffered another major blow.

Lets face it, vintage Triumph, BSA and Norton motorcycles have been out of production for many decades. Parts are getting harder and more expensive to obtain. Loosing a parts dealer like Raber's Parts Mart just makes it one step harder.


What does the future hold for Raber's Parts Mart?

Since the news broke out recently about Raber's Parts Mart we have heard many different reasons of why Raber's Parts Mart will not be selling parts.

Regardless of all the rumors, speculations and "here say" I personally believe that Raber's will always be around to serve the vintage British motorcycle community in anyway that they can.


CBS welcomes you!

Although Raber's Parts Mart will not be selling vintage Triumph parts, BSA motorcycle parts or Norton Commando parts from what we can see, we wanted to express that Raber's Parts Mart customers are welcome here anytime at CBS parts.

      would like to know if anyone knows of a vintage (1967 BSA Hornet) mechanic in the Salinas, CA area??? Kickstarter for some reason is locked up, the bike was completely rebuilt by Raber’s about 10 years ago. Has always ran perfect, it is a racing TT type bike. Appreciate any information. Talked to several motorcycle mechanics, they said the gear is stuck, but their suggestions haven’t been able to get it unstuck!! Thanks

      I know someone who bought some parts lots from Raber’s when they had their auction. He is a Triumph enthusiast, so he sold me a BSA spitfire hornet bottom end that was in one of the parts lots.
