Very ambitious project if the photo reflects the state of preservation. My hat is off to you for taking it on. Please take pictures as it proceeds.

As an aside, we all love certain challenges. What makes this one particularly attractive?

There's a bike there???
"It´s a friggen motorcycle, it´s not supposed to be comfortable, quiet or safe. The wind noise is supposed to hurt your ears, the seat should be hard and riding it should make you s**t your pants every now and then. "

Crazy isn't it??people have asked why go to such lengths to restore. I have no choice, when I saw her abandoned and all alone in a dark barn, and then heard her call out to me in desperation. "Help!!"
So here we are :D

She received a tank liner today, using redkote. Will never rust again!! There was enough rust in the tank to make a gypsy bracelet of sorts, and even a necklace too.
