A Naked Frame…

the bare frame of the GL100 project


This weekend marks a hinge point in my restoration of my 1982 Honda GL1100 Interstate.  Tonight it was rendered into a naked frame.  I coaxed Carrie out to help me lift it off of the lift and onto a roll about outdoor table.  Weather permitting I intend to go at it with a nylon brush and hand triggered doses of Simple Green.

Meanwhile I cleared the lift, swept up the debris, wiped it clean and laid out the front forks, the rear end and the swing arm sub assembly.  Hopefully, I can get Tyler to come by and help me get the engine up onto the lift.  From there I should be free to roll the motor around while cleaning it.  Having a go at all the nooks and crannies, with things eventually ending up with the engine upright on blocks with me bolting the frame back onto it.

At this point, that’s the plan…
