What Charleston said. I tried to view the blog but the links weren't working properly. Sounds like an interesting read though. Thanks for taking the time to write it.

Wingnut

Age can be just as rough on a bike as miles as you have noted. Care of the bike makes all the difference. You will see many bikes that old on the site that look great and haven't been repainted, etc....

There are several long threads in this forum of rebuilds. Look through them and you'll learn tons about the GS. As long as it is safe to ride (which it appears to be), hop on it and ride. Over time...

Nice RR

I can relate to this comment. I just get on and ride. Stop when I get tired, put gas in it when it needs gas and keep going. Thanks for the ride report.

Spray Version...

The spray version of that same color is Testors Spray Enamel 1214. It comes in a 3 oz can and I found it at Hobby Lobby for $5. Hope this helps someone else out there as well.
