She's mostly together, just waiting on the air filter. She cranks but won't start. I think the fuel lines are clogged but I'm done for tonight...

I finally had a chance to install the new petcock on my '85. After tinkering with it for a bit I got her running! The throttle was stuck all the way open but that was fairly easy to fix. She runs well when you're moving but will lug and sometimes stall at a standstill. I think I need to adjust the idle speed but I'm just happy I got her going! I spent the evening zipping around my neighborhood and put almost 10 miles on her!

Many thanks to everyone on here, I couldn't have done it without your help!

Finally got new tires, Bridgestone Hoops. The seem decent, but anything is better than the 30 year old originals lol. New tubes too of course. Just waiting on the new belt and some swag!

Took a few pics...
