Looking good, hope you don't have too hard a time getting her running. If the motors free now, get the carbs clean, make sure the wiring is strait and it should fire right up for ya. Get your serial number to us and we'll get your bike on the registry.

Alright, thanks for posting a pic. Mine is the same year and colour.
This one looks to be in very nice shape!

It seems to have been kept indoors for the duration of its life.  Got an ignition key cut today at a local locksmith.  Took 3 minutes and $20 for 2 keys, which I thought was a steal.  Next on the list is taking the carbs off for inspection.
