Bringing 74 R90S back to life after sitting 30 years

Bringing 74 R90S back to life after sitting since 1979 ... parked with only 7,300 miles on the clock.
purchased from the original owner's son. This bike was the 41st R90S made to USA spec's off the assembly line. one of the first R90S to hit American soil and quite possibly the lowest mileage un-molested R90S in USA.

Was torn between selling this bike, purchasing a modern bike with proceeds and keeping it.
At first I thought it would be a shame to put mega miles on this R90S. But came to conclusion, that's what it was made for.

After thinking about it for a day.... nah... more like an hour... keeping the R90S!
It's my goal to bring this bike back to 100% mechanical condition. reliable enough to tour.

This thread is to document the process, that is if anyone is interested...

30 years of dust
