Hey guys,
I guess I'm one of the new guys so here we go,I just started my new project today,I have a 1977 gl1000 and I got tired of working on it all the time so I stripped it down today and I am gonna do a complete restoration, frame, engine and all,yeah ya probably think I'm crazy and wonder why I just dont go by a new one but my wife likes this bike and dont wanna see it go so I am gonna do this project for her,so when I get done I'm handing the keys to her and buy me something,so if anyone has went this indepth on a older bike then any imput would be nice and very helpful.this is my first complete rebuild on a bike so i'm probably gettin in over my head but I am enjoying it so far,but would enjoy riding it even more lol.WISH ME LUCK.

Your not crazy.Complete restoration is a great learning project.I've done 3 bikes.By restoration I don't mean to showroom condition but to factory specs.Everything works.Trouble free and only routine maintenance. Every bearing,every part inspected,all the electric and so on.It takes a while.One piece at a time.But what a ride afterwards.You can put a Lip Stick on a pig,but it's still a pig.All the wax in the world wont make it run any better.
