Re: Ok explain the patina thing to me

Its all good Mal. That V65 is one bike you want to hold on, when ya take off. Lots of poopa. :o I had one 20+ years ago & needed another one. With only 24,000 miles it runs like new. But I like all bikes anyway.
Have a great day Mal

For me it was look good and be able to ride safe. Changed the rims, put some paint on the rear fender. Powder coat the foot pegs. Rebuild the engine, change the seat, put some wax on the tank & frame.
Leave the patina to the Pickers.

They stayed with us for a few days. Then were able to get into a assisted home. Helped them get some new cloths. A lady gave them a nice pillow top queen bed with Oak head/foot board. So there on their way.

Re: Yellow headlight lens...

Check your state laws. Lots of states dont allow yellow lights as head lites. Just yellow for fog lites.

Re: Guidance

Take lots of pictures if you can. I would cut the throttle cables, you wont use those old crusty things. Cut the rubbers off the foot pegs. Take the front cover off, 2 10mm nuts. Dont cut any electric wires if you dont have to.
