The clutch on my 82 Interstate froze due to the bike not being ridden...although I did let the bike run in gear on the center stand. I've tried rocking the rear wheel with the bike in gear and riding around the neighborhood blipping the throttle. No luck. Also, when I pull the clutch lever in, it stays in...no spring force to pull it back out.

Any ideas short of a teardown?

Thx,
Gary

I agree with Bryan. Start with the slave forêt and make sure it is actually engaging and pushing the arm.

If all is good there then you may want to start taking things apart.

The '82 does not have a hydraulic clutch, just the cable linkage to the clutch mechanism.

Thx for comments anyway.

Sounds like a broken cable.
