It ran and shifted fine when I got it. I am mostly going to do basic maintenance (brakes, valves, fork oil, engine oil, etc.), tidy it up, and modify the looks.
I ordered some Emgo window t-bars for it and some red oury grips. I plan on stripping the tank to bare steel finish and clear coating it. I'm working on polishing some of the aluminum bits( forks legs, brake drums, engine covers, etc.). The biggest challenge will be figuring out a seat for it. I want it to look nice and professional, not crappy like most of the cheaper "customs" I see. I may need to take the stock seat pan to an upholstery place.
