Look what followed me home

I was gifted this bike. It's an '80 or '81 GL1100 Interstate with 26k miles on the clock. She's old and needs work, but the bones are good. Could be a fun project. Just going to clean her up and get it running then go from there.
Don't have a lot of time or money to put into this project so for now just the bare minimum.

Fixed the photos. There is still a couple of artifacts left over from my lack of computer skills.
This is what what I eventually want to do

Certainly, you're not going to lose the stereo?

This is going to be a long road to where I want to end up. As the quote goes "the longest journey begins with a single step".
With all the fairings and accessories.

After removal of 115lbs (not including seat and faux tank) she is looking better already.
