I just got a 1982 1100 gl aspencade. It's in bout twelve pieces I have never worked on a honda before. I could really use some assistance in figuring this out on how to go through and check everything out to make sure that it is ready to be assembled. Can anyone help me or steer me in the right direction? I'm lost.

Well you came to the right place. First thing I would do is to download the parts manual from this site. It will give you the lay of the land so to speak. Then get your hands on the service manual. Sad thing it used to be downloadable here until Mother Honda stepped in. Alot of us can help with that. I guess for starters you might want to see if it will crank over, then get the Carbs and fuel system cleaned and installed and see if she wants to run. Wouldn't worry too much about lighting, brakes and suspension for now. They are really simple and for the most part bullet proof. Parts for them are really not that hard to find.

Dora, Alabama is a city and state, believe it or not :lol:
