Just got home with a real project: a "classic" KZ440LTD. It hasn't run in sixteen years. Bobber or restore? Probably wrench & restore, since there is a lot of family nostalgia associated with this old bike. This is my first rodeo, so I am going to be asking (a lot of) questions.

Welcome here. A friend had one of those in 1985. His had a belt instead of a chain like modern Harleys.

Changed the oil and filter (it really wasn't as bad as I had imagined). Bought a battery, brake fluid, and one gallon of Evaporust to remove rust inside the tank. Replacing brake fluid next.

Correction: No brake fluid in master cylinder or lines - just yellow dust. Rear drum brake locks wheel and will not return when brake pedal is pressed.

Engine turns over when cranked without spark plugs.
