Hey folks new to the forum, it looks great!! We are old bike hoarders.

Image

We have picked up a very nice 1972 GT550 survivor that has been stored well for 15 years, pulling the crabs now for cleaning, rest of the bike looks pretty solid, hope to learn a lot here and look forward to getting to know you all better! Below is fresh off the trailer, just some water and simple green to knock the crud off I think this is going to clean up well.

Think that worked first time using Google photos since the photobucket disaster.

I guess I don't have this figured out. They look fine when I posted them but when I come back they're not there. Still have some work to do.

Finally got my pic hosting squared away. but it won't let me delete this thread and start all over? Am I missing something?

Deleting the thread can only be done by a moderator after a short delay after the original was posted, if you get my drift.
Looking forward to seeing it.
My GT550 resto has temporarily stalled due to other commitments - like a GSX1400, Kettle fettle and other things!
