Good choice to use the Speedi-Sleeves.  I have used them successfully to re-seal the input shafts on the large 90 degree transmissions powering the Seattle Monorails, still running at age 53!  Eight transmissions per train, and two trains.  Speedi-Sleeves in at least half of them. They work.

+1 on speedi sleves.
The army even used them as standard rebuild procedure too.
A good machine shop will be your friend on alot of things. I like to do as much as I can by myself but sometimes you just don't have the equipment or experience. Alot of the older shops have "been there, done that" and can repair/rebuild unobtainable parts and save you lots of grief.
That's a sharp bike! Lucky dog!!
Been to Ireland, beautiful county, wonderful folks!
