The rest of the bike is in pretty good shape, just needed a dusting. The wheels cleaned up very nice except for a couple corroded spots on the rear, they just need a little more attention.

I still need to check/adjust the valves, reinstall the carbs and exhaust and she should be ready to run. Oh , and get a battery.

I have a set of z-bars coming along with some bar end mirrors and new grips. Once she's running, then the plan is to get a set of white walls.

If i'm lucky I can have it ready to roll for a little over 1k$ total. A little more if I choose to fix the big dent in the tank. :)
Leave the dent. Adds street cred.
