I've plucked a number of old bikes from garages, and I'm happy to say the my first line of attack on carbs has always been Seafoam.
I'm happy to say that it has led to minimal carb teardowns in my garage.
Try it.

how much do you think a professional paint job would cost. I would like to have the engine cleaned and repainted and have rust on the bottom of the bike, exhaust, and swing arm repainted?
I know it's hard to give a precise opinion but if you have an idea of what it may cost please go ahead.

STOP. Try it yourself. Don't go spending a bunch of money a bike that's not worth much.

I bought my Sabre from a guy that was going to powdercoat the frame and make the bike look just like new. He took everything off of the frame. 9 years later, after moving the bike around his garage one too many times, he put it on Craigs list for $500.
Moral to the story, don't bite off more than you can chew.
And remember, when you are done, you might get $1,500 for it.
Did you sign up to V4hondabbs.com yet? What is your handle?
