  1. I have no problems with a frankenstein bike. I'll probably keep this tank to play with de-rust options, but buy a refurbished off ebay. They aren't than expensive. Once I get a nice running bike (I also was "given" a rolling bike that turned over) I'm get all the plastics and the tank fixed up so it looks good. I haven't decided on a color scheme, yet, but that's a ways off.
  2. Finally drilled out the lock on the tank. Old gas smell is no fun. Looks like tanks aren’t all that expensive on eBay. I think a replacement is in order. I don’t feel like trying to get the tank clean.
  3. I picked all that up off eBay pretty cheap. 🙂
  4. It was just an operational check. Making sure the starter and electronics were working. The air box arrived. Of course, it’s missing a hose connector. I’m modeling and 3D printing a new one. Should be done modeling, printing and in-hand by tomorrow evening. Basic shape is done... now some refining...
  5. Putting on the base plate for the air box is a bit of a bear! But I hooked up to a battery today and heard the motor turn over! All the electronics seem to check out. It sounded good. Just need to keep pushing along and find all my missing pieces.
  6. Not a bad idea at all! I'll look up replacements.
  7. Looks like this is an amazing wealth of information. Thanks!
  8. Good news! Found an air box and base plate on eBay. While I wait for delivery... more cleaning. What have you all used to restore plastics?
  9. No cutting of the fender here. I'm not opposed to the look.
  10. I had thought that since it was sitting for 12 years, it probably needs new seals everywhere... perhaps not? I mean, the oil was clean, the coolant was clean... no leaks... I'll think about it while I try to find the airbox.
  11. You guys are great! The carbs look clean. Got an air compressor today just to clean all this off. Past the butterfly, the cards are spotless. Looks like it was just dust and saw dust. next step... meticulously pulling the engine.
  12. Oil looks clean, just smells a bit... stale? Not burnt though. If it hasn’t run since ‘08, I won’t know about gaskets until I run it. But, that’s a long ways off.
  13. No doubt. Working on a slow tear down and then cleaning. Shopvac and an air compressor will do wonders.
  14. Found a guy on eBay. We chatted back and forth a bit. He said no problem. We’ll see if the keys work. I just provided year, make, model and cylinder code. This obviously won’t work if you have HISS as you’ll need a matched key and ECU. Not sure about the linking policies on this forum, so mods can remove if not allowed. https://m.ebay.com/seller?sid=cyclekeysonline
  15. No idea... that key doesn’t work either. I’ll have to drill the cylinder and replace it... unless I can pick it. It’s only four tumblers, I think. airbox? What airbox? Going to have to acquire or 3D print a new one.
