Colorado Airheads club? Or, what do you need a mechanic for specifically?

Few things

PRT seals but they are getting better the more I ride it ( been sitting for many years)

Maybe a carb cleaning refresh and head bearings ( I'm sure I can do the bearings) just need to buy the tools and bearings oh and have the time :)

Fork seals

Aye, that's a bit of work. On my /6 I was able to reuse my head bearings. The grease was dried up and they felt notchy. I cleaned the everything up really good and re-greased them and they worked fine. You'll have to inspect them when you get it apart to determine if they need replacing.

If you have time I'd reach out to the Airheads club and try to attend a tech day. If you are in a hurry to get it dialed in then you may benefit from professional help. Good luck.

As far as steering head bearings I have never seen a set wear out on an airhead. I sure have seen a lot of then where the grease turned to some sort of concrete mixture

You would probably be ok just cleaning them up and re-greasing them. I have done this more times than I care to admit.

At least I hope that is your case.

Carbs are easy to clean as when you drop the float bowl everything is right there.
