OK, I'm new here. Just bought my '80 Interstate over mother's day weekend - my wife was thrilled - NOT. I've been really enjoying the site. I've already replaced the starter and changed the oil. Just waiting for some parts to come in to do all the filters (literally found a rat's nest in the air filter). Then I'll jump into the world of carbs!

Here's my little beast 'as is'.

Please, do not forget the timing belts. They can look good and be bad. Good luck and enjoy, it is a good bike.
