Introduction and Tresette help and info

Hi,my name is Albert,living in North Wales,and I am in the process of restoring a 1961 Morini Tresette
The bike had been stood a very long time and came to me mostly complete, with only a few damaged or missing parts.
The engine turns over, but condition is unknown.
At the moment I have stripped it completely, apart from the engine,ready to have the frame powder coated, and the rest painted.
Are there any members out there that has any experience in restoring these machines, as information seems very thin on the ground.
There are a few questions i need answers at the moment to move the project on.
1 How do I remove the steering lock, and if it gets damaged, can I get a replacement.
2 Where is the best place to get parts and transfers, apart from eBay.
I would be very grateful for any information/advice.
I also have a 1977 3 1/2 sport,1970 Suzuki t500,1960 Velocette Venom,1952 BSA B31
Many thanks,
Albert.
