My name is Shain and I live on Oak Island NC. I'm a contractor and pretty handy with tools but never did any mechanical work; just woodworking. A couple of years ago I had the opportunity to purchase a 2006 gz250 for cheap and my love for riding was rekindled. I refer to her as my second first bike. I had a cb450 back in high school. The gz is a great learner but I didn't realized how small it is until the Hawk came around. A 1980 cb400t I found on craigslist for $75. I bought it just to take it apart and get a $75 education in motorcycle mechanics but a few months later I am riding my new daily driver. The Hawk runs great but it ain't much to look at or make long rides on. This brings me to my latest purchase, a 1975 gl1000. This bike, I've named her Donna, sat in the sellers basement for 32 years. The seller parked it after having trouble with the starter intending to fix it later, which never came. He also said it "needed a clutch" so there's that. The only other thing he told me was it has electronic ignition, an improvement he had installed so not fully stock.
I have quickly perused the forum and am grateful for it's existence and to all who share here. I know this will be a great source of information for me as I prepare Donna for the open road.
Anyways, I've attached some photos.
