I have no idea where to even begin with this. It's a 73 GT750 that had a rebuild begin almost 30 years ago. The bike ran, and was put in a broken down old shed 26 years ago, and it's time to see if it can run again. I am trying to upload the pics I took with my phone, but apparently they're too big, so you'll have to take my word that it's rough.

To post pictures you need to use a photo hosting site like photobucket. Where to start is a tough one. I would try to determine the engine's condition, and go from there.

First thing has to be empty and flush the petrol tank get rid of old fuel. Then strip and clean carbs. Change transmission oil and 2 t oil. If the motor does turn over spin it round a few times by hand.check and clean airbox.Now if the engine has been sitting for 20 odd years the crank seals are likely to be shot. Now here you have a choice either fill the crankcase with deisel or fuel oil mixture to try and protect the seals turn it over by hand for a few days or just try to start it. You will of course need a fully charged battery.
