My baby was in hostage in Florida for 2 years and it took a toll. Just got it home (upstate NY) a couple weeks ago. I'd clean and wax my baby every two weeks. Made certain it was clean and shiny. Today, I went out to clean the rims. First thing I notice is the spokes are rusted to hell. I did take 150 grit paper and they clean up but that would be one PITA. And they'd rust again. What's cheaper - getting an entire new rim with spokes or just having the spokes replaced. Sitting takes a toll. When I rode it home (about 50 miles from where it was dropped off) the bike was "bouncing." Got off, looked at the front tire and it has a flat spot. I didn't even look at the back. Obviously, new tires and tubes. Mirrors rusted. Throttle handle feels like mush. Seems to be as soon as I get something cleaned up, I spot something else. But it is well worth it. I'm the original owner (2001) and it only has 19K miles. Approximately 4K was going to the HD Hundredth in 2003. Runs like it is new. A lot of work to do to get it back in pristine condition. I'm just a retired old bum so time is on my hands.
