    This was a project bike I had picked up for $1k out of someones shed. Had sat for 10 years not in running condition. Guy said he bought it from a guy who couldnt fix it and then he said he couldnt figure it out either. Took me a few months but I got all the major issues sorted, she purrs like a kitten now. On the list to do is a few replacement nuts and bolts and a whole new wire harness as Iv already rewired almost the whole bike so may as well just replace the entire factory harness so it looks better and is more reliable than what I did. I only had 2 colors of wire to do everything with haha.

    Also, about $3k deep into her altogether so far. But, another $500 and she will be mostly a new bike, at least run like one.

    It's so wonderful to see a neglected, essentially abandoned bike get nursed back to health and given a new life. Great job, @Shabuti! :heart_eyes:
