Hadn't ridden since the late 80's. Recently acquired a 1980 CM400T. Had to do a fair amount of work to make it rideable again, but almost there! Still have to rebuild the front brake master cylinder, get a petcock / screen, and a back tire before getting the wind in my hair again! Neat forum. Certainly didn't have this kind of thing back in my day!

worth mentioning exceptional folks on this forum which are a real treasure and will help you along..

Welcome aboard!. You'll definitely need a proper Factory Service Manual. It doesn't post pics for you, but the information is the best. PM sent.

Suppose you were an idiot. And suppose you were a member of Congress. But I repeat myself.
That's great Robert!
I hope your title issues are easy to overcome. I know some states are easy, and others are difficult, when it comes to titles.

My chest fell, but, fortunately, my belt caught it.
I don't know everything, nor, have I met the one who does.
