A fair bit, it didn’t run and looked pretty rough.

Took motor out to fix broken off exhaust bolt, painted frame and engine, vinyl wrapped the tank and plastics, rebuilt carbs, cleaned out the tank, rebuilt masters and calipers, new brake and fuel lines, tires, swingarm and steering bearings, wiring was a bit of a mess, electronic ignition (points plate had a tiny crack and grounded out, probably what made someone give up on it in the first place).

Did some custom LED lights, seat is from a Kawasaki 1200, different bars and grips.

Was a lot of fun to do but a headache at times, especially dialing in the carbs.
