Another newbie to this forum - my new project

Hello all.

Just bought a 1980 GL1100 Interstate. 54,500kms. Paid $500. Wanted a bike project to tinker on this winter. Rip in the seat, lots of dirt/ crud / cobwebs. Timing belt was replaced at 50,000 Km's.
Is complete, was stored inside an unheated shed. Was running ok when it was put away / winterized many years ago but has been now sitting for 9+ years. So lots of restoration work required.
Found this forum plus others. Amazing amount of info and knowledge and helpful advice on these forums.
Will post some clearer "before" pics once I trailer it to my garage from the PO's storage shed if it ever stops snowing.
The pics below were taken by the PO at the PO's shed.

Advice and comments welcome
