Newby to the forum

Hi everone, im Dirk, thank you for letting me join your site. I just swapped a cellphone for a 1980 GL1100. The bike needs to be rebuilt as the engine is in parts in a box. This is definately fiing to be a very interesting build as I live in South Africa and parts are very hard to find over here.
