OMG Rudolph of Utrecht Netherlands. That is beautiful and you should be proud of what you have accomplished. Can't imagine what you have in that bike in blood and treasure.

I noticed the clock on the bars. I got one of those and am sorry to say it lasted a month. Hope yours does better.

Congratulations! I think you loved doing it, i would. Maybe you're now in a empty zone and you need the next work to start! After a beautiful restauration is sometimes a vacuum. :-)
Enjoy your ride with proud.

@ weedo2 & JoeBar Team,

Thank you.......!

Indeed it was a lot of work and you fall more or less in a "vacuum" when it is finished.......
However, one time is enough.......enjoying the flowers, the birds, nice social contacts and the sun is an even more important matter....

BTW: my '75 GL1000 K1, was purchased in 1978 (10.000 mls).....as a second owner I drove it a couple of hundred miles untill 1983......after that it was stored for 31 years (2014) in my garage...
Fortunately in 1983 I did spray considerable amounts of anti-corrosion lubricant in the cilinders, muffler etc. and thanks to that preservation I was able to turn after 31 years the engine with the kickstarter ......omg, what a relief was that for me......I was prepared for the worst.

I was a retired person for many years already (now nearly 74 of age) but suddenly suffered a full year with severe psychic problems requiring medical treatment.......after feeling a lot better I started in 2014 restoring my GL1000 K1 as a therapy......
I still use some regular medication, but life is really beautiful again.....

It took me (believe me) 800 hours of labour (I like working untill 5 o'clock in the morning) and 400 hours spending on the internet to gather specific know how about the GW and to search for parts......
Parts, tires, SS spokes, brake parts, paint, professionel polishing (not mirror-like), re-spoking of the wheels by myself and lined/tightened by a professional,etc, etc, costed me a approx. $ 4.000,-

Kind regards,
Ruud

Hi rudolphwolven
I also have issues with my body and at least i'm able to make short rides with my bikes and do some little and easy mechanicals things on them, it's the best therapy for me so i can put my aches away for short time and quite forget my disability. This makes me happy.
