Yeah, it looks pretty crappy, but I'll have it on the road by next weekend. That pic was from 3 weeks ago when I picked it up. I got a complete set of unpainted Chinese plastics with the bike. This is what she looks like so far. And the parts list color coding is (white-ordered not received, blue-received not installed, green-installed).

Welcome to the club & the forums Thomas..

These old beauties are a labor of love especially when you get one in the pitiful condition you found her in..

Glad to see you reserect her from the dead & put her back on the road.. she's worth it

Oh man! I feel you... that is rougher than mine was.
Awesome to see someone care about it enough. Welcome to the forum, I am scrambling to get mine back together... almost there.

After 24 days, a lot of parts purchases, & horse trading for the fairings, she doesn't look half bad.
