That's awesome looking and it's funny how things like your bike color sticks with you. My first bike was an old junker but my Mom gave me a pint of mountain green paint and a brush. To this day, that's my favorite color which makes Candy blue Green more special to me.

Just went through this entire thread. Too bad some of the early photos are lost. I had forgotten my comment in post #123 about having one of my old SOHC's back. Now I do! (Recall the two basket cases I recently acquired)

Going through this is giving me a serious itch to see what I've got!

Soon. Soon.

Yeah, photobucket was a fantastic idea right up until it wasn't.

Trust me, I've been itching to get this thing registered and on the road all winter.

The last major hangups are steering head bearings (the current ones are SUPER-indexed) and tires/tubes. My cheap tire guy just went out of business, and while I may have found another place who can install them, I also want specific period equivalent tires, because reasons.

It may be one of those thing I get piece by piece as I can afford them. But I want to get at least a couple hundred miles under this bike this year for sure.

1984 GL1200 Standard- For Sale!
1980 KZ1300- Carb balancing when the weather warms up
1972 CB750 Barn Find- Tires and Head Bearings

All advice I give is only valid until an expert corrects me.
