Nice, did you ever find out what was causing the idle to creep up? I've had this happen on another bike before and I never could figure it out.

Thanks. No, not yet. It barely crept up this last time. I had it set pretty low, and lowered it again on my 40 mile loop, but it stayed after that. Might take it out this afternoon and see what it does.

Sold it today! Got basically what I had in it back, so it entertained me for the winter.

Third 'wing is aboard! Monday, I drove over 600 miles RT to pick up a '79 that seems to be in fairly good shape and fairly complete. Although the odometer shows <78 k miles, the 2017 registration only shows a little over 41 k. Tires less than two years old (Dunlops), it is largely rust-free. AGM battery. Wouldn't start, but it's about out of gas - I'm not realky worried about that, I'll get it running right. Compression checks good.

It had been "turned into a cafe racer" by removing the handlebars and replacing them with a couple straight pieces of 7/8" tubing. Seat replaced with a chunk of carved foam rubber. Tail light replaced with a plastic unit zip-tied on. No mufflers but clean shiny headers. It came with a complete set of Vetters including the key to the bags and covers. Stock headlight and ears are in place, but I'll need to cleanly remove the Vetter connector from the harness. Trying to find a local that wants them. It also came with the original handlebars and taillight mounting bracket including rear signals.

Needs: seat, grab bar, taillight, tool tray, front signals, front brake reservoir, clutch lever(broken). I have a pretty good muffler set and hangers for it from a previous build. It also needs a good refurb by tearing it down, polish and paint, rebuild. Also the left side cover is pretty trashed and poorly glued back together. I have a spare for each side however. I will no doubt find a ton of special fasteners (like the shelter hinge pins) missing. Planning to take my time on it, and get it really right. Looks like haunting ebay is once again a thing for me. Not my first show, new belts are on order as well as filter, carbs o-rings. I have (just in case) things like head gaskets on hand.
