History
Purchased it from a storage unit in Feb of 2010. 36k miles, plastics in rough shape, wiring harness compromised and cobbed with doorbell and speaker wire, exhaust leaks, non-functional air-ride, ratty seat and gummed up carbs.

Two years of problem-management has gotten me almost 30k miles of riding with some off-season repairs (carb cleaning and rebuild, reupholstered seat, backyard mechanic plastics repair, bubblegum and duct tape).
