Today I saw a fellow pushing a bike up his driveway, 1984 honda cx650 turbo with 5000 km, been in storage in the basement corner for 27 years. Paint is immaculate not a scratch or spot of corrosion anywhere, chrome sparkles
Not drained or prepped in any way just parked under threat from his wife, he said he didn't sell because he resented her telling him to not ride.
He asked me what I would do if the bike was mine, he is scared to put a battery in it as he thinks it is worth thousands as a collector and doesn't want to burn it up, good luck with that.
I gave him the contact info for a couple of shops but cautioned him the hourly rate can add up quickly and he could spend more than the bike is worth to get it running.
Pics to follow when I catch it outside again sure is bright silver/bronze in the sunlight.
