    Default Back after several years

    Hi guys: I was a member several years ago. I think when I had my 1150 EF or maybe later when I had my 1150E. Anyway I just bought a 1977 GS750 off the original owner so I guess I'm back into it! Original owner did all the legwork on the bike (even though it only has 25,000KM). So I'm just going to go over everything, finish up a few items and enjoy it,g s 1.JPG

    Oops: Ha, ha. I should have posted a different one. Not sure what brand of exhaust I'll go through the receipts, It is stainless. I prefer the stock ones and I have them but of course the mufflers are rotted out in a small area at the back near the outlets and at the welds where the mufflers were welded to the pipes that connect to the headers in front. I may do what I can to repair them and run them, the chrome on them is exceptional with no scratches or marks.
    The original owner went through most of the bike but I couldn't get either brake to build decent pressure today, I'll have to research what's going on, maybe a seal backwards in the master cylinders or something.
    I'll try to redeem myself by posting a shot of my 1150E that I redid.

    Here we go: Got the brakes bled, installed the stock exhaust. Very happy with the condition. Tomorrow I'll check torque on everything, adjust the valve lash and check the carbs over.
