Morgan,

This was Josh Putnam's. The original auction for the complete unrestored bike is here:

http://ebay.com/<blah>

and here's the URL to Josh's original page of photos of the unrestored machine.

Looks like those are all the parts, and that the seller you bought the frame from should have most if not all of them. If not these shots will give you an idea of what to look for.

Best of luck with the restoration. I would have bought the machine had it been the right size for me. Personally I'd have cleaned and polished the machine and made it as rideable as possible without doing any paint work, that crackle paint finish is 'super patina'!! :-)
