My First Bike

This is my bare bones 1300C. It's a 2006 with 6500 mi. The guy took great care of it and to my good, it's in wonderful condition. I look forward to building a somewhat "custom" bike and learning a lot from the forum as it's my first bike. Forums are wonderful! At some point I hope I can contribute to the knowledge base. But for now, I'm learning. Thank you for all the help I know I'll receive from the forum. Rog~

It looks very clean and very original (even still has the original tires). I always like starting a project with a stock original bike so that I'm not working around any "bad" modifications. I have a very original 2005 1300C that I've owned since new and love it. I think that you will be happy as long as you keep in mind what this bike was meant to be. Good luck and post your progress. This forum has help me, a great place for knowledge and even wisdom at times!

Welcome! You have a great looking bike. I'm in the same boat as you, my first bike is a 2003 1300s. Like you I hope to contribute some day, so, I'll start now. If the tires are original, as Alabama1300 suggested, you'll want to get some new ones. What I've learned on here is that tires should be changed every 5 years or so due to dry rot, etc. Might check vacuum lines as well for the same reason. Have fun and keep us posted!

Nice bike, I have a 04 1300c also red. I love it, but hard to keep clean.

Old tires... very dangerous. Don't take a chance, please. Battery tenders are great. Old batteries are bad news, also. Nice bike, enjoy.
