    A recommendation for a place in Australia (preferably NSW for faster delivery) would be awesome! Thanks!

    I'd be more concerned that it's out of stock ... had a bit of a look at the usual shops - couldn't find one

    if you can't come up with one - I've got a new one I keep as a 'spare' and also a regulator if needed

    OG is genuinely better quality

    You could try Vintage Vee Dub Supplies in Campsie - no commercial website so you'll have to call them or drop in - http://www.vintageveedub.com.au/contact.html

    I had a number done a couple of years ago. The main thing is to get them to use German or Japanese bearings as the chinese ones don't last with the heat. Diodes should be available but possibly not in a pack.

    Agree - have seen some shiny new ones throw bearings quite quickly.
    Have known people to buy the shiny ones and then change bearings straight away with good results.
