Just picked this one up for dad. It was a cool find. We have been looking for the right bike for 6 years now and was on the sent of this bike for two years before it all came together.

Just discovered this thread so I'll play too.  My FXR2 purchased two years ago.  It had sat for a long time before coming to me.  Tires still had new nips on them but were 12 years old.  That's how much it had set.

Came from northern PA and had been stored in a barn.  It showed it too.  Fortunately the paint survived well.  A lot of the chrome not-so-much.  Front wheel was eaten through from the inside out.  Someone had put an ugly uncomfortable short drag bar on it for a handlebar and forward controls sometime in its life.  For someone with a 29.5" inseam it was all but unrideable.  Especially since the carburetor was as rotten as the front wheel.

Over the course of two or three months it came back in shape.  Fortunately it made it to me in February so the timing worked out.  New wheel, bars, risers, switch housings, etc.  It actually cleaned up very nicely.  It had enjoyed good care before being put out to pasture.

I'd forgotten how bad those stock single piston calipers were.  Good gawd even my old ass could outride those things.  So better brakes front and rear. After a new carb and failed cam sensor being replaced with a single fire kit the engine is great.  Really smooth little Evo.  Bone stock internally and it does everything it should.

Neither of the pics are the bike today.  The pic at the old gas station is close though.  For some reason I don't now recall the sissy bar is off the bike that day.  Must of been in the middle of something. 

Of the three it was this one's turn today.  Gorgeous afternoon and it went 150 miles going nowhere in particular.

When I tossed the forward controls I went with the old FXR cop bike footboards.  Just way more comfortable for me and I was lucky enough to score parts cheap.  About the only thing I'm thinking of still doing is adding a front crash bar.  Partly because I like the idea of crash bars and partly because hanging pegs off of it would give one more place to rest feet or stretch legs. 

This one is a fun bike though.  It looks great and runs wonderfully.  Dialed in and just a nice ride.

Well that cleaned up nicely.
Mine had also sat for many years. Over 10. Guy I got it from said he did most of his own work on it. After I got it home and started fixing things that were wrong or worn out, I wanted to go back to his house and just confiscate all his tools. But probably would have just been a hammer, maybe some vice grips.  :turd:  It came with a service manual but doubt he ever read it

I was lucky in that regard.  In mine's life it seems to have been pretty well and pretty correctly taken care of while it was active.  Then it just sat for a long time.  Honestly aside from oil changes I'm not sure mine ever got a lot of service.  It was just pretty untouched (in a good way).  Nice reliable old machine.  When I got it 2 1/2 years ago it came to me with about 22k miles on it.  Now showing about 29k and it's just a happy little bike that doesn't seem inclined to give me any trouble.  It's next winter chore will be lifters and a cam bearing.  Just because they're lifters and it'll be 30+ thousand miles.

Nice ride, 2Lane.  Of course, I'm biased.

Hmmmm.  Calls himself 2Lane.  Has a red bike, and I'm betting more than one.  Sounds familiar somehow.   :wink:

You can feel plagiarized or honored but I stole a note, or several notes, from yours. Your research, time and documentation say to me a lot of time when I was bringing mine back from its storage maladies. For two years now though it has just been a fun bike to ride.
