I started working on this project a while back, but haven't posted a thread until now...better late than never, so here it is...
A couple of years ago, I found this poor girl sitting all alone in the snow desperately needing someone to bring her back to life. She hadn’t be running in more than twenty-six long years (with gas in the tank and carbs to boot).
I started out that day to buy a neglected Honda CB900 and the owner also had the GL1000 sitting outside and asked if I was interested in buying it. Initially I just gave her a quick glance and declined as my sights were set on the CB. (also, it was several degrees below zero at the time and I didn't care to dawdle outside for too long)
Later, after buying the CB I gave the GL more consideration and ended up going back to buy it as well. After all, I had room in my trailer and at first glance it looked like it was all there and surely it would not be too hard or too expensive to get her up and running again…right?
Well, we all know what that kind of thinking can lead to…$$$$
