mostly cleaning and clearing dirt from the frame; checked the tension of the drive chain / rear tire alignment.

things on my to do list: ( not alot but being out of work gives plenty of time and little cash)

bleed the front brake - tire not turning, will tear down if need to free the caliper

change Oil - looks like grey sludge on the dipstick. Yuck! will need to flush?? not certain but know it couldn't hurt.

check the rear brake pressure - just because

replace the fuel filters and air filters

get battery charged and check all connections
- V/ohm ; bulbs ; et al

replace both turn lens on right side

Find /fabricate or purchase pair of baffles for the exhaust
-then hang the pipes I got recently

Kick it over and see if she lives

synch the carbs and set idle
test brakes
check lights
check tires

hang the license plate

Say a prayer to our "Lady of Engineering and Locomotion" & test ride
