Indeed!  First fire and run after inheriting a basket case is extremely rewarding.
It's a total frankenstein moment.
It Lives!
Cheers!

Ha yep, all I need now is 2 missing engine mount bolts and a clamp for the throttle cable and we can ride it down the road, I need to do the check all the nuts and bolts and air pressure too but so close to going from a pile of parts to a ridable bike, feels great.

Still have to test ride and check tuning etc. got the throttle clamp done last night and was able to rev the bike up and have it return to idle. seems to be nice and smooth reving so test ride will hopefully go well. And I have the colour scheme down on the GL and just need weather to cooperate, been humid or too cold last few days to paint outside, which I have to do with the 2K clear.
