Iím doing a basic level safety and soundness refresh on a 79 1000SP and it just struck me how quickly the parts add up. I had lying around new tires and tubes, points, plugs, oil filter and head, rocker arm cover and sump gaskets, but had to buy carb kits, float needles, brake lines, brake pistons, seal kits and pads, a battery, some cables and a few nuts and bolts. The tab is already over $700.00. Bless those of you who do this professionally and have to charge all of this through to your clients. It seems a little unreal at times but better than wondering what is happening down there when I squeeze the brake levers.
