The customer I built this bike for 6 years ago, mostly let it sit, he only put on 300 miles since the full nut and bolt restoration.  He had the carbs rebuilt and powder coated, installed the rear Racetech shocks and front Racetech kit.  After that, I believe he let it sit for at least 3-4 years.  Gas was bad, tank was rusted on the inside, battery was dead and carbs were all full of gas that turned to varnish.  Chain had rust and some bolts that were not stainless rusted.

To get this baby back up to par, I had the tank blasted and lined, fully disassembled carbs, ultrasonic cleaned, all new seals and jets before putting them back together.  Jetted properly and synced. Swapped front fork lowers out for a fresh set of the longer version so I could install a new Tarozzi fork brace. Forks received new seals and Motul fluid.  Front brake fluid was flushed and new Motul 600 fluid added and replaced rubber diaphragm in master cylinder.  Took apart the front brake pads, cleaned and inspected, all good. Installed a new Magura clutch lever to match the master cylinder and replaced the black lever on the brake with a natural one.  Drained oil and put in new K&N oil filter with Motul 10w/40 oil. Adjusted valves, cleaned and gapped plugs and checked timing. Swapped out tappet covers and cam end caps for polished versions. New AGM battery and o-ring chain.  Installed one of our new Big Mouth reverse cone mufflers and re-made the muffler bracket. Replaced all rusted hardware and installed a fresh set of Vans grips, pegs and a bar end mirror.

After a full detail, this bike shines like new again.  Clean title and current registration, ready to rock!  Save money here on this practically fresh build.  It would cost you $15k to duplicated this bike with me today.

Choice of bodywork:

Red bodywork was put on to participate in the Distinguished Gentlemen Ride L.A. a few weekends ago and is still currently on it plus an additional 80 miles.

Silver bodywork that came on the bike would be $1000 cheaper price.  Last pic is when I purchased the bike back before I did the upgrades, just reference for the silver bodywork!
