Title: I shouldn't listen to you guys at Sonic.

So... spent to long at sonic with all the motorcycle project talk and one might end up at your door. Picked this up today and spent the last half day giving what was once a neglected bike a nice start to a refresh at life.
Not quite vintage at a 1993 (made in 92 kinda squeaks by :D) Suzuki Intruder VS800. When I first started looking at it I figured It needed a repaint but happily it turns out I was very wrong. So far im looking at Tank drain/cleaning. Re-do all the gas lines and give the carbs a complete overhaul. Coolant, Motor Oil, Final Drive Oil, Brakes. There is also a small oil leak part of which looks like its coming from the filter so it could be fortunate. The left Fork seal is completely shot and I feel that there is more old oil on the fork than in it. The seat also needs to be re-done and its not just because of the flames. The only "cosmetic" part I want to change on the bike is the aftermarket handlebars that were put on it i couldnt even bring myself to take a picture of them  :sleepy
