Rode it! Got home from work and decided to get the old girl out and ride it before calling it a night. Installed petcock, fuel lines and a few other bits, and she fired right up. I had planned to pull and clean the clutch, but thought "what the heck, sometimes they will free themselves" and sure enough, the first trip down the drive way (after making a rolling start), I pulled in the clutch lever and the discs came free. Nice. She runs pretty well for having sat all these years and the trans shifted nice and smooth. Just a little more work on mechanicals and adjustments and then I can spend a little time on the polish and elbow grease. And yes, I am grinning!
