I recently purchased a 76 GL1000 with 18K miles. It is a little hard to start but seems to run well, although it won't idle well, and the temp guage quickly moves off the chart but the cooling fans won't run...where should I start?

check the fuse box. if the bike is been sitting a lot those old fuses may have need some contact cleaner. after that, connect the fan directly to battery and see if it runs. if it does is then the thermoswitch.
