bought this bike off a guy locally via CL a week ago as a winter project. It's a good runner, and it's complete. Needs maintenance stuff, cleanup, some paint and polish.
I'm a regular contributor in a number of forums for my various hobbies (F150 pickup, HAM and Scanner radios, Honda Accords, etc).
Over the next few months, I'll systematically work through every possible maintenance item on this bike, and repair the few odds and ends. It needs all 4 turn signal stems (got the fronts coming, but having a hard time finding rears...if anyone has any leads on that, much appreciated). May have to do some rust remediation in the tank...gotta find someone with a scope! It needs tires before riding season. Plan to do this bike as a resto-mod style, and either flip it for profit in the spring, or maybe just keep it if I fall in love with it.
look forward to getting to know you folks,
