What did I do?
well so far...in roughly chronological order:
battery,oil, filter,fuel filter, strip accoutrements..... compression test, replace seat cover, clean and check gas tank, replace gas shutoff,valve setting, belt replacement, plugs, complete carb Randak rebuild, sync carbs, paint buff everywhere, clean ALL electrical connection...I mean ALL, led bulb replacement, rebuild brake calipers...a few times ( stopped the leaking fluid by replacing aftermarket seals with genuine Honda seals)....clean and buff some more , reroute wiring and add headlight and turn signals from Dime City Cycles, ears , Honda emblems, tool box and gas tray from EBay.

Just need to replace tires and lube rear end :)
