New member from lansing

Hello. I'm bob from lansing mi. I have been a bike guy since I was 10 or 11. I'm 60 now so its been a wile. I just finish a resto on a friends 1971 sl 350 so it's time to start my next personal project. I bought a 80 gl1100I in Nov. Its been sitting outside uncovered for 16yrs so I have some work on this 1. I love orphans! I couldn't stand the thought of it being scraped. Going mild custom slash bobber. No rules just have fun. The key word is salvage. I paid $200 for it and when done I hope to have no more than $1500 into it. It should still produce good compression after I go thru the heads. Less than 47000 on the ticker. Here are some picks of my oldwing and the sl I just finished.

Welcome to you from an ex-Michigander. I grew up in Detroit, got my first bike in college - a 1968 BSA Thunderbolt. Wish I still had that bike.

Nice restore and great project bike. Please keep us up with your progress with plenty of pictures.
