So I can say this is the first time for me doing something like this on a motorcycle and it is also my first airhead. I will more than likely have a lot of questions for you ever knowledgeable airheaded people here. I've seen a lot of inspirational threads on this site and I've been thinking about doing this for the last two years. So the people of ADV please o' please don't let me turn this into a basket case. On the block 1975 R90/6 mileage is exempt and I got it for a heck of a price. When I got it, this picture makes it look much nicer I swear quite nice actually. Crappy camera or really good camera the picture lies. Slowly went to this.... Time to build this thing from the ground up, shall we start? Took the tank off and its pretty dented and dinged up from the previous owner. Local shop told me $100 cash to fix the dents and dings no paint. Does this sound like a good deal? Inside tank it's not actually rust but a rust colored coating that is flaking off everywhere. No tank or seat and lots of rust.... Broke a rubber standoff on the battery box. It's ok though I am mounting the battery elsehwere. The other side more rust.... Leaky master cylinder Look at all that corrosion on the lower beam, (why would it be so corroded?) Glad its got a Dyna III, I want to relocate this thing. Looks like petcock rebuild time as well. Not sure what this thing is, but the mount is broken. Other side showing more corrosion...the blue tape is my method of marking what all the wire leads go to. This is how I left it I need a bigger wrench to get the ignition side headlight bucket nut off. I will grab one from work. Atleast most of the wiring is pulled through and labeled. Lots of wrenching ahead of me and that's it for now. I won't be able to get back to it until probably this weekend due to xmas and all. I have so many plans for this thing that it keeps me up at night thinking about it. I keep thinking oh please god let me be able to put this thing back together again.
