Another Wing Restored

This is a 1977 GL1000. It got almost 69000 on it. It was ridden all over places. The left head gasket got shot, and it was parked for years. The bike was my wife's uncle. He had no desire to restore it. I brought to life his Honda CB400T that was seating in the woods for more than 15 years. He did not even recognize the bike. That bike became wife's bike, and I got 1975 CB750F for myself. With no projects around, I attempted to get the Wing to start. I started with rebuilding the carbs, and while I was almost done with them I wanted to turn over the engine. And yes, the engine was frozen. Here is the thread for that.
