I like the stunt cage, that's a keeper. There are tons of web resources for these things. I came across some looking for my parts for a '72 CB500 and was amazed at how much is out there.

Got the engine turned over once a few minutes ago. Then stuck again. Still needs a few days with PB blaster. Getting a bucket of carb cleaner. Surprisingly, the carbs on the inside look very very good. Somebody rebuilt these before. The exhaust, however is trashed.

Thank you everyone for the support, I will surely need it! Here are pictures of the purty head and valve and the general carnage. Can you say chain maintenance?
