Yes, a scrap yard, but it is much cheaper and easier to just hide a toggle switch somewhere.
... looks like she needs a lot more then just a key from here

Tires, rims, headers, chain, airbox and filters, bearings an brakes should eat up the best part of 2 grand real fast, you better shop wisely. Motorcycle scrap yard is your friend.

Looking for inspirational pics if anyone has any of this bike turned cafe racer!
There are tons of pics of CB350 cafe racers on the internet. Some good and some terrible.

For practical inspiration I recommend catching an AHRMA race and checking out those bikes. They actually function.

You'll be pleasantly surprised with what the end result looks like if you pursue functional and performance oriented modifications.
Doing that will result in a bike that looks as good as it performs

If you're looking for a key it's very easy to find one on eBay. All these old Hondas have a number (typically 4 digit) stamped into the ignition, just type "Honda motorcycle key (number)" in the search bar
