Hello from a new member in Montana, USA.

Recently picked up a "new" 1979 R65 from my uncle.  Hadn't run in 22 years but in remarkably good shape except for the normal deterioration from the non-use.  Have worked for the past 3 months finding parts to bring it back to stock from having a couple of pretty ugly modifications.  Test ride a couple of weeks ago...success. 

Looking for some ideas as I go forward in the rebuild.  Will keep posted...

Congratulations!  Bringing one back after years of disuse can be a challenge!
