Greetings all.

 I have been riding street bikes for the past 25 years. Started on an Honda CX500 Custom and have had 6 different bikes over the past 5 years. Finally settled on an ST1100 on 2009 and then ended up hitting a deer with it a year later totaling it. Wife said "no more bikes", and I agreed for a while.

After a year I couldn't stand it anymore and bought a CBR600 off of a co worker for an easy fix/flip/sell. If it had any kind of bags at all, I would have probably kept it. Fun, fast & smooth.

I stumbled on my 87 C10 locally on craigslist for $900 and bought it as a winter project. It runs, but need a fair amount of TLC. Fairing are cracked, wheel bearings are shot and she just needs some mechanical attention all over from neglect.

Pic and progress are here:
