I agree...I like to call the bike "bullet proof!"

As far as showing a video, you have to upload it to your own hosting site, then post a link.

This is the best i could do. This its its second start up, The 1st was a little smokey and my mechanic mate said it was condensation. it soon stopped and was running fine.

This has been left in sun, snow, rain for 3 years and all i have done is take the fuel tank off and put in new. I will soon change the oil, oil filter and coolant.

Anything else you would do?

Seems to be in good shape! I'm not at all surprised it fired right up. The Japanese know how to engineer. Mine sat for 5 years before I bought it, it rode like the day it was made.

Pinup, congrats on the find! Good on you for not just dropping it at the shop to be fixed up. Just my 2 cents, but I would immediately change the oil and filter, than change the oil again after a couple hundred miles. Nasty things can happen with old oil left in motors, you want it out of there. Also, I'd say a proper flush of the coolant system might be in order.  Cheers!

Well at least the price was right. Id strip it down literally as far as your mechanical ability allows and just scrub everything. Fly Nihon over to your house, buy him some beers, and watch him work his OCD magic. :thumb:

EEW, beer, gross!!

For another 100+ hour rebuild, I'll be charging at least a grand, haha!

Maybe run some injector cleaner just to be on the cautious side. Only takes a couple tanks of fuel and it's not very expensive. Get an OEM air filter and some new rubber. Check your tires for cracks or splits, sometimes they can dry out after sitting for so long. Mine were toast when i picked  up my bike.

Nah, if you haven't already, I'd recommend flushing out the old brake fluid, too. It's degraded by sunlight and absorbs moisture over time, and 3 years is a long ass time. Bottle of RBF600 is like 18 bucks on amazon and should last you years, even with this initial flush out of the old stuff. Again though, just my 2 cents...and I'm crazy, lol.   :P

The beauty of a Honda. And thank god for good ole St. Nick (the patron saint for prostitutes).

After sitting so long, I'd change the oil and filter after running it around for an hour. Never know what gunk got built up and will let loose on ya.

Uploading a video, just get it hosted on a site - youtube, facebook, photobucket just off the top of my head. I'd say youtube would probably be the one that's a pain though.

And that's such an awesome transformation!

I had a feeling I brought a crap chain cutter when it snaped in half.

I will get a decent one next time.

Ive never done a chain before but its time to learn.
