    Got me a UJM


    Last month I picked up this very clean and all original 1980 GS1000G (shaft), one owner, titled, 8K miles, last on the road 1988, came with a new-in-the-box AGM battery, original tool kit, factory service manual, was running last year (only on choke), now just needs carbs cleaned haha.





    Let's see some more NESR UJMs. Post 'em here, if you are so inclined.

    Re: Got me a UJM

    My first bike was a 1979 GS750. Like this only had a luggage rack. Bought it for $2,000, rode all over the Northeast for two months, sold it for $1,800. Chrome fenders, of course.

    No pictures, but had a 1980 CM200T that I rode the crap out of as the first bike I owned rather than being loaned. Some day I'll have another.

    Re: Got me a UJM

    I have this. 1978 Honda Hawk CB400.
    My dad did a low-buck cafe conversion on it. I took it apart a few years ago and haven't gotten around to putting it back together yet.

    I always liked those built-up Honda wheels -- Comstar they were called?

    I have never seen a girl like that near a motorcycle that wasn’t paid to be there.

    If she has to air out the FRONT of her bottoms, I don't want any of that portfolio.

    Tas -- thanks -- I joined a couple of weeks ago -- fantastic resources. Found a link to an excellent CV carb tutorial, HI-RES pics, tools you need, and so on. But first it looks like I have to get the calipers off and cleaned up at least -- the front brake hangs now when applied. The PO changed the engine oil last year, but I'll do it myself again, got the filter, ... and the final and intermediate drive lubes, too. New tires on the list. And so on. I'm hoping to register it with a YOM plate, got a new, never issued 1980 MA plate on eBay.
