just got a call from my mechanic [because I don't have the space, the aptitude, or the ability to do a lot of work myself].
work needed: new seals and gaskets because the thing is leaking like a son-of-a-gun, rebuilding of starter because it doesn't start / turn over though it makes a lot of noise, new rear tire, plus odds and sods. I don't think I can afford to get the work done -- and he's an inexpensive mechanic! so it looks as though my 80CBK will be retired, partsed, or sold.
just wanted to have someone cry with me, that's all. final decision to come, but likely has been made.
