    Hey GLBlinded.

    I am thinking about taking on this job with my 82 GL500. Would you or anyone on this thread mind telling me what the ball park dollar amount and work time is?

    AF, Don't think anyone can answer this because the answer depends on the condition when its disassembled.

    Could be as low as a bit of grease for cost and some time.
    Could be as high as replacement of all parts for cost and more time.
    Could be anything between the 2 ends.

    I would plan a Saturday and a Sunday for disassembly. Then see what is on my hands for the next steps.

    On a very good day the time is about 3 hours for me - that is is everything comes apart easily. On a Stubborn pro-link it can be a very difficult task. Typically the job is all labor and no parts it will be helpful to have a wire wheel on electric motor to clean the rusty bolts and you need grease or the recommended Molly paste. I usually do this task any time I already have the pipes and H-pipe off the bike.
    #1=81 GL500I rider sold to Steve, #2=82 Yellow GL500I rider, #3=81 GL500 rider that is/has become parts bike, #4 = 83 GL650 in need of full restore but is becoming a parts bike #5= GL650I rolling basket case that is now on the road #6= Naked GL650 runs but have not started on it yet is missing title but after it's 30 years old next year I can get a new title here in Florida with only a bill of sale. (I'm up to bike #15 or is it #17 now but have sold a few)
