Forgot To Introduce Myself

Postby vtwin » 10 May 2009, 17:36

Hello all! For some reason I've never introduced myself on this site. I'm Roland and live in Northern California. I bought my poor little neglected GR650 in 2007 around February. It had a bit of engine damage even though it only showed 13K miles. The guy I bought it from got it in a group of bikes he got from someone. Other than the registration, it didn't come with any paperwork. So bill of sale in hand along with a old regisitration card and a sealed letter returned from the address, I was able to finally get it in my name. During that time I had put alot of work into it and two weeks ago, was able to use it to go to work. It's a pretty fun little bike and hope I can work out the existing little kinks.

Forgot to mention in the last picture I didn't have the side relectors on the bike (even though the replacements are incorrect) and the wrong taillamp was still on it. Here's a picture with the parts I mentioned added on.

You did a great job job fixing the old girl up. Thanks for all your informative posts that help to keep this site alive. I am always in awe of people that can tear a bike down and bring her back to life.

Thanks. I felt it was a worthwhile project for a forgotten bike. Someday, it may even be a collectible. :lol:

I've just picked up this little lump of coal. Anybody know anything about them?

Someone posted this on another forum and thought everyone would like it. I really enjoyed it.
