Whoa, those are some tired looking carbs!  Hopefully the diaphragms and the jets are alright for ya - after a thorough clean :)

Ah cool, the slide is a piston instead!  Well I hope the pistons are not in too rougher shape then  ;)

It was running before the teardown so I'm just going to clean them the best I can and skip a rebuild on the carbs if possible. If they need rebuilt later they're easy to remove and I'll do it then.

Lunchtime progress... Rear wheel, engine, & driveshaft removed and brought inside. It's supposed to rain over the weekend and didn't want the exposed intake/exhaust ports open even if it will have a cover over it.

Those will probably clean up better than you think. it looks like mostly surface rust.

As long as the area of fork tube that travels through the fork seals isn't rusty, you will be ok.
some wd-40 and fine steel wool  should clean that up nice

Most excellent. We picked up 1 full gl500 complete, and 2 other gls, 500 and 650 plus lots of luggage cases and extra fairings in November.. ! Havent worked on them yet, as I have so many on the go right now! i love the shaft drive... no need to worry about a new chain!. But chains to have a special place in my heart.. Here are a couple bikes Ive built. One is a shaft Xv750 and the other Cb550!

Sooooo... no pic but it's damn near bare frame. I want the swingarm off and I'm looking at the manual but not getting it. Do I just remove the spanner nut and then it comes apart or do I need to do something after/before the spanner nut? I see hex heads inside the nut but the doc's I'm looking at aren't clear on what to do.

I pulled the plastic plugs off both sides of the stamped frame, the air shock is off, the swing-arm is ready to drop if I can get the pivot out.

TIA
