Grey--thanks for the suggestion about ebay France. I might need to go that route, though I'm going to dig around locally first. If I can find a couple of side covers eventually, then I think the motor wouldn't be as noticeable no matter what I put under there. I love the style of this bike, but I also want it to be a good runner, so that's a balance I'm going to have to work on. God, I love those old Mobys. I bet yours is killer sexy. Mine won't be so for a long, long time, I'm afraid.
