The exhausts and the luggage rack are off and the fender hinges nicely. Some areas are a head-scratching conundrum. For example, the tires are so new that they still have whiskers on them !! They look good, and I am really hoping that they are not dry rotted. It lends some credence to the previous owner’s claim that the bike was running a year or two ago. It is amazing how much surface rust can accumulate just from a single winter in a drafty leaky shed or under a tarp. Footpegs and other minor things are removed. So far, so good.
