I finally have found my dream bike! I found a 1977 75/7 tucked away in a barn in Montana. It has 60k miles on it, its a 2 owner bike, new tires, points, oil pan gasket, condenser, and plugs. Starts up and runs. I have not had a chance to actually see the bike yet so I'm going off of pictures. My buddy is going to pick it up for me tomorrow. I'm in Spokane Wa so I can't get over to get it right away.
I paid $1500 for it, plus $100 gas for my buddy to get it. I feel like I did pretty good on the deal.
What are some of the things that should be checked/replaced on the bike to get started?
I plan on keeping it fairly stock, but want to do some modern upgrades on it to increase the performance and reliability of the bike. What are some of the common upgrades that I should look into doing on the bike?
