I have been working on her for a couple months and finally got the title today! I have her running well and put her in my name today (finally!)
I have been learning as I go, here is what is done so far...

Replaced fork seals and oil
Changed Engine Oil
New Brake Pads rear and service all around.
Bleed front and rear brakes
Bleed / cleaned clutch
Cleaned Carburetors
Synchronized Carburetors
New , Less Rusty Tank Cleaned/ Derusted Tank (Acid Treatment)
Changed Airbox filter
Fixed Shifting issue, Grind Kickstand
Cut Windshield
Cleaned and repaired Fuel Sender
Repaired Clock
New Fuel Hoses
Recovered Seat
Fixed Right Mirror
Replaced Left Mirror
New Battery
Repaired Alternator/ Replaced regulator
Replaced Spark Plugs

I will get the valves checked this weekend which is basically the last mechanical issue. Put this off due to potential cost for tool and shims.
Including the registration I am in for $346 and the valves have a potential $200 cost though I am crossing my fingers.

Super fun bike to ride! I have a 09' BMW GSA 1200 and classic 74' R90/6 and I need to let one go soon for space/wife considerations.
Not sure which one is going to go.
I hope you add tires to that list..after 10 years I think they’d be suspect. Great bike!

looks just like my ‘97, which had the same amount of miles on it when I got it.

Had that happen on a 99 Trophy 1200 that was custom painted with the Union Jack flag streaming off the headlight bezel and down the sides including the side cases. I had been out for a fast backroad run of about 30 miles and was pushing through the sweepers at 90-100. Parked it in the garage at my business office and walked past it several times think something was off, before I realized the right hand side case was gone. I drove that stretch of road weekly for a month going slow and looking out into the pastures on both sides, figuring it came loose at that speed it could have skipped like a flat rock on water and sailed 50 yards of more off the road. Never found it. Finally found a set of green ones on craigslist down in Georgia and bought them and had my local body guy repaint them to solid silver.
