Got questions! I've been reading and will continue but in the meantime you guys might be able to help me out a bit... As you might have noticed right away, the carbs are completely exposed with no filters whatsoever! I'm not sure how much it was ridden like that, but it seems fine so far and I won't continue to ride it that way. Fortunately, the seller had the air box and all four boots which seem to be in nice condition. I understand installing that box is sort of a bitch, but I'll git er done. One catch here though...it looks like the air box may not be complete? Check pics, let me know if I'm missing something and maybe pop me an Ebay link or something so I'll know what I'm shopping for. And the fasteners too, I didn't get a box of screws or anything like that with the bike. Next on the hit list are the brakes and tires. Pretty sure my tires are from the 80's and need to be replaced even though they show little if any tread wear. Referring again to the pics, maybe someone can enlighten me on the date codes? Also the front brake is very weak, but the rear feels ok. Either way it's getting new brake hoses and pads/shoes. If I could get some input on where to shop for that stuff I'd appreciate it. Looks like removing the front wheel isn't too much trouble but what about the back? Shaft drives are supposedly good stuff from what I've read, but does it make getting the rear tire off a painful proposition? Oh yeah, and the turn indicator lights. Both the rears are removed for some reason? Looks like in my pile of extra parts I have one that came off the bike and one that came from somewhere else, lol. I'll have to do a bit of wiring there after I round up one more light. I assume they are supposed to flash, right? Currently when I throw the switch I just get a steady left or right front turn signal light. I'm hoping with the rear lights hooked up it will flash. Or does it not work that way? Aaaaand, while I have the front wheel off, should I be doing something with the forks? There's no problem there that I'm aware of, but I've ready about guys taking them apart and putting in fresh oil or whatever... is that something I need to be concerned about as long as things move smoothly and seem to have an appropriate shock absorbing action? Oh and a little about me... I'm a pretty mechanical minded guy. Had a '65 Galaxie as my only car from 2010 to 2015. Had probably 6 different engines in it, 4 of them I built myself (always trying something different) swapped the original auto trans out for a 5 speed overdrive, set up and ran several different rear end gears, relocated the battery, start relay and ignition box to the trunk, so on and so forth. So I figured I could probably get into having an old bike, especially since it doesn't have to be my daily driver. I've never had a bike before and had been thinking about getting one off and on for a couple years. Last weekend I took the MSF course and found my bike on Craigslist yesterday. 18K miles and it fires right up so I think after doing the things I listed above it should be an alright bike to get me going. Paid $800 for it, does that seem like an alright price? Seems like most all of the bikes I found under $1000 or even $1500 either were not running or were missing titles. Or both! Or maybe I'll be $1500 into this bike by the time it's ready to ride? What do you guys think?
