It's an '87 with 42K miles, paid $1800.  So far I've put on new tires (Metzler Sportek Klassik), new front brake pads (EBC Semi-Sintered), had a local hose shop fabricate new ss brake lines front and rear for $120, flushed the brake fluid, replaced the torn rubber cup at the rear of the transmission (what a mess!), adjusted the clutch, changed the air filter, purchased new keys from motokeys.com using the codes from PO, set up the powerlet on the dash to charge my cellphone, removed the PO's CB Radio, purchased aftermarket bag liners off of ebay, replaced grips, replaced all bulbs (headlight bulbs, taillight bulbs, and turn signal bulbs)
 
I’ve purchased all necessary parts for oil/filter change including new sight glass, final drive fluid change, transmission fluid change, coolant change which hopefully will be this weekend. 
 

After that it’ll be replacing the crankcase breather hose, fuel hoses using gates lines as well as the fuel filter, lubing the final drive splines, new radiator cap with interior o-rings.  Should then be up to snuff.

Welcome Dave, you sure are giving the new lady all the love and attention that has been missing from her life for a while.
Now all you need to do is take her for a long ride.

Welcome Dave,

It's always good to get those jobs done. Gets you to know your bike much better and avoids those nagging doubts about what the previous owner did or did not do. 

Don't know what part of the USA you are in, but hopefully you will have enough good weather left to be able to get out on your bike and reap the rewards of all the maintenance work. 

Enjoy
