Well, I finally dug mine out from under wraps today, washed off the accumulated grime and began stripping off the parts that'll need attention. It's actually in better condition than I expected for being under a tarp for a couple of years, so perhaps bringing it back won't be as difficult as I feared. I'm taking pix and will post with some narrative. The joy of working in a gravel driveway during the onset of winter should keep it interesting.

This will not be a restoration, but a getting-back-on-the-road. The bike was never show quality and has always lived outside when I've owned it, so it will simply be a matter of making it roadworthy and legal again and then riding it. I hope to do this will minimal financial outlay, but do anticipate having to buy new pipes if I can't get the aged, rusty MAC 2-into-1 to pass inspection. More later.
