Final post to establish bonafides.
The motorcycle I am working on is a mid 80's 700 Shadow. Not exactly sure what year. From what I understand it ran good before tear down but it had a number of places with oil seepage up on the engine jugs and the bike would lose power pulling hills. It seemed to have a peppy low end, good top end speed, but little strength pushing against the wind or climbing hills. I don't know if that's the nature of the bike or if there's some issues with this one. Either way though, the engine is coming out, will be cleaned up and the frame painted.
This is the first Honda I've messed with. I own a 2013 old Road Glide and a 2014 KTM 1190. Neither have I had to do any work on outside the normal maintenance. Hopefully I'll be able to tap in to some of the knowledge here so I don't screw this bike up too much and end up having to turn it in to get my efforts repaired on top of the original work that needs doing.
