Project Bike, Anyone????

I looked at this listing from Craigslist in person. The original owner died and it's been setting at least four years. It has paint damage on the right trunk and bag, left bag, damaged tip wings, and medium scuff on the left lowers. It has a broken antennae. Other than the cosmetics the fuel soured and it will not start. I believe the varnish has invaded the injectors and will require a complete fuel system cleanup including replacement of all the hoses, and replacement or cleaning of all the injectors. It's pretty rough. However with that said, I think it's probably ok mechanically other than the fuel system. It might be a good project bike if someone wants to accept the risk. It would require a great deal of time and labor to bring it back to life. What was a fine motorcycle five years ago is slowly wasting away from neglect. What a shame.
