Welcome to the strange world of the Autocycle !

First the good news! Most engine parts are available from Villiers Services (you do not say whether you have a Powerbike 50 with the JDL engine, or the later Powerbike 56 with the 2F).

Although most autocycles used fairly standard items, Francis Barnett autocycles have some weird fittings such as the back pedal brake and the later examples have rubber band front suspension. For the later bikes, wheels and tyres are a difficult to source.

For the items you mention you should be able to find a good set of North Road cycle handlebars and cycle seat post. The VEC (Lucas) headlamps do come up for sale on ebay, but good examples tend to be expensive.

PM me if you need more help with the cycle parts - there is a historic cycle specialist in Harpenden who may be able to help you with the handlebars and seat post.
