My Winter Project (I must be nuts)

Well after hanging with a lot of my friends in their local vintage bike club,
and stopping by the airhead rally in Tellico this year I decided it was time to find something old to spend some time and money on.

I found this.

I'm not sure if it was a smart thing to do because this bike is ROUGH.
It started life as a 1982 R100RT. It was sold locally, and serviced by the dealer for a good part of it's life. Somewhere something happened and it just wasn't loved anymore. It almost looks like it sat in a barn for a bit. It did not have any of the fairing but it did have the bags. I probably wouldn't have re-used the fairing anyway. (I'm thinking S or CS for a finished bike.)
The bike was advertised locally so I first got some pics and made arrangements to go look at it. The pics didn't do it justice, it looked a lot worse in person. It did run and I rode it around the block so I bought it at what I think is a fair price.

As of a couple of weeks ago I am here.

On wednesday I had a bare frame, wheels, and a box of various brackets and mounts. I dropped all of it off at the powdercoaters for a fresh coat.

The good thing is, your damn motor can't read. If it says oil on the container, it's pretty much OK to dump in there.... ED.
