Wow, looks like a great find. Your other bike looks fabulous as well! How long did the other bike take? I'm just starting out with mine and am at a frustrating stage. Guess I just wanted it to happen faster.

Sean,

Take it slow. I still have much work to do. It took me a fair bit of time and a lot of wife naggin but it's close.

Get yours running. You can always rebuild everything. Get a good manual. Part of the fun of owning a retro bike is improving it.

I still have much to learn and these guys on this site are so helpful.

I had a CL160 a few years ago. What a neat bike that was. One of the smoothest running twins I have had. Had the usual problems getting it running after sitting for a long time but no more than usual. The scrambler pipe made synching the carbs a challenge. Once it was dialed in it was the favorite at the camp grounds. If I lkeft the keys in it one of my Buddies were off for a ride. I think I filled the gas tank once a year os so whether it needed it or not
