Not to spoil your fun, but that will not prevent your bike from starting.

It will, however, prevent your bike from charging, which will later lead to a dead battery. That will then not allow the bike to start.

I actually have cobwebs from the tires to the floor, none on other parts though. It started a little hard last week, this week it was no go. The cruiser is also dead and covered under eleventybillion layers of dust

You're right though, probably new tires and batteries on both bikes. Also have to get the carbs cleaned on the cruiser. The factory stickers are still on it. I think 400 miles on it since new and never touched again hahahahaha

It's been so long I don't even know where has inexpensive batteries for sale for motorcycles.
