Spent Brass is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 74 XLH1000 Project

Bought this off a buddy of mine. He never got it running and after he picked up a 96 Sportster, this went to the back corner. After a lot of pestering and irritation, she's in my yard now. Got a bucket of parts to go with it. I have a final picture of what its going to look like in my head, but I have to keep telling myself "Just get it running first". My first motorcycle that wasn't a dirt bike and I'm ultra stoked that I might have it figured out.

Actually. Looks like it should not take much to get that running. Clean the carb. Check wiring for burns or breaks or loosey goosey connections. Ric gave good advice on checking primary and setting ignition. Maybe check wheel bearings while wheel is raised by rotating wheel and see how the brakes look and sound. Mostly hand checks. I would take nothing apart other than the primary cover like Ric mentioned.

Take me about 2 days to go over that bike before hitting the start button.
