Most of the headers I've used on my rebuilds have been Motad .. though I have used Devil headers from Kedo once & another one on my TT bike but can t remember the name at the moment.

For the wheels i always have the rims and hubs powder coated and re spoke with stainless from Central wheel company... they do offer a refurb service too.

Yes you can fit a 140/80 on your 3AJ .... I have a 140/80x17 on the TT Tenere
