Welcome to the forum. That is quite a fleet of kayaks you have, would love to see/hear more about them. And from your blog it looks like you have spent some time collecting kayak advertisements and labels, probably the most complete in the world. Please share how you came about making the collection, and some pics of your rare kayaks would be appreciated as well.
As far as finding the parts for your hart sioux I think you would be better off finding a complete frame or finding one to copy and then fabricate. I have seen a couple of them for sale in the U.S. on Craigslist, but that is certainly a long shot.

I have a complete Hart Sioux frame, which I believe is the Turbillon model. I would be pleased to send pictures and measurements of any parts. Just let me know what you need and how best to forward the information.
