Working on my 1986 Yamaha Radian

Getting this thing running. Has 4800 miles. Hasn't been run in about 8 years. I have no idea it had been that long. Carbs are totally frozen, need complete rebuild, but the engine turns over free. Everything including the tires are original. I've done just about everything I can to it now, so next step is to get it to the shop so they can tear it down and make it great again! It's not a special bike, but it's unique in todays motorcycle world. It was my dad's and he gave it to me. He bought it when he was 40 years old, and I am 42 now. It was purchased new in 1988 for about $2100 out the door. I'm hoping to get all the work done under $1000. Carbs, tires, cables lubed and front brakes flushed. engine tuned. Hopefully.

Wow, almost 1200 views no replies. Still not running. Had to put it on hold cause somebody T-boned the family SUV. Our beloved 2004 Honda Pilot. We decided to buy new so we downgraded to a 2015 Honda CRV LX base. It's no Pilot, but it hauls the family and has room for RC! Biggest complaint is the seats are hard and horrible.
