Congrats. Looks like you may need a new chain as well...at the very least, some chain maintenance. ;-) From your post, it looks like it will get the TLC it deserves.

BTW, be sure to check that you didn't crack/split the fuel line from the bottom of the tank from lifting it up.

Enjoy.

ohh yes it needs new chain and sprockets, its been sitting for at least 2 years. i made sure there was slack in the fuel line. i was pretty irritated to find out that you have to unbolt the fuel line to take the tank off.

From that rear tire it looked like someone did quite the burnout.
