Quick intro

Hi everyone
Long time lurker as I’ve been rebuilding a 78 GL1000 over the last few months Here in Maryland - my first project bike and my first bike in 20 years (before children).

Some great resources as I’ve done compression tests, sync, oil changes, valve clearance, electrics and more troubleshooting than I care to think of.

Wanted to say thanks so far...before I ask for help 🙂

Still lots of work to do and she (GLadys) still has some handling issues I don’t understand but she’s getting there.
I have a zillion pics - the red one was a week or so ago. The electrics were ummmmm interesting but I paid under a grand for her so it was eyes wide open.
