Howdy folks.

Picked up a new to me 1800 last weekend, and she’s a bit of a project (Purchased dirt cheap) so I’ll have some questions for y’all. Bought with a stuck clutch (solved with a flush of the clutch cylinder and a ride with the clutch lever pulled in - she broke free after a mile), and I have some electrical gremlins I’ll need to chase down (crappy wiring by previous owner plus she sat outside a bit).

Holy crap does she have some low end torque! My other ride is a ST1300, which I love, but there’s something to be said for riding a beasty muscle bike vs a refined sewing machine....

Oh... I wont be lol.

Ive had plenty of project bikes, so not much scares me - but each bike has its own... quirks.
