Low mileage bike left in garage for years. This inline 4, carburetor engine ran ok when I first bought the bike. It was never abused but it was neglected. Fluids were never changed, all parts were OEM when they should've been replaced, the bike was never winterized, etc. When I picked up the bike, I took all the maintenance steps I could to bring the bike to its former glory so I did the following:
-Several oil changes
-Transmission fluid changed
-Brake pad replaced
-Brake fluid changed
-New tires
-New spark plugs
-New battery
-Carb cleaned
-Carbs Synced
-Air filter replaced

The bike runs wonderfully now, with little issue or inconsistency. However there are still some issues mechanically and several cosmetic issues.
Mechanically:
-Head gasket is "leaking" (as with many old bikes,the rubber gasket has a minor leak that makes a sludge around the head gasket at worst. It's does not need immediate attention but may need to be replaced down the line $300 est.)
-Front Fork Seals need to be replaced (once again, as with bikes of this age, the seals have worn and cracked and should be replaced during this riding season or the next)
Cosmetics:
-A gas drip of a previous owner has made the metal peel on some of the internal components
-The front windshield is likely as old of the bike and looks as such, it's fogged by UV exposure and scratched from it's past
-The stator cap is severally scratched
