Hey all..... Tis ismy second post on here.... First was ranting and raving about previous owners ability to screw things up. I am in possession of a 78 gl1000 with a homemade vw rear end on it. Stock motor... Pretty cool. Bear bones right now as I'm trying to figure out a handful of quirks. Im on my last day of vacation today and here in nh it's raining cats and dogs... So with no garage... I'm feeling a little sad not being able to work on this thing. Anyways, wanted to stop in and say hi. I look forward to picking everyone's brains and eventually being able to help others. Eric!

Howdy 78Trike. Where do you live in New Hampshire? I graduated from Nashua High School in 1968 and have 2 brothers in NH; Rochester and Manchester. Lovely state but have never ridden bikes there as I moved to California after graduating in 68 where I bought my first bike. Climbed Mt. Washington several times in the winter and summited as a lad and have done lots of hiking and camping in the White Mountains. I hope to be traveling thru your state next summer on a motorcycle tour from Texas to Nova Scotia. Good luck on your project.

Welcome to the Forum from way down south in Texas. Good luck on your rebuilding project. I envy your rain.
