Hello, I am Feraz Petrus Nicolaas Ahmed and live in Amsterdam (Crazy name
half dutch half Pakistani)
Today I bought my first bike ever, a 1976 Honda GL1000 in Sulfur Yellow.
I used to be a CB750 fan but when this voluptuous beauty came along I changed my mind and left the smaller one :D
It was stored for 6 years and was last started about 6 months ago, the previous owner told me.
I know it is a special historical bike, and dont want to ruin it. A total restauration is not yet my goal, i want to make it running again with a cafe-racer look and keep parts like the venders for later on.
In the summer i plan to strip the bike and make it running again. (I am used to handle al kind of tools, People call us the local Rednecks because we fix all our own stuff
I will update this tread with a lot of pictures
I really hope you guys will help me advising what to do and what NOT to do. I now really well it is a special bike and dont want do ruin certain parts of it.
First I would like to know: Which products are best to clean this bike? For the different kinds of metal, rubber etcetera. What is the best way to remove rust on the surface like the chrome venders. And i need a new battery but which one is good enough? Thanks for your help.
