Thanks, the main reason I joined is to learn more about the bike. its a 2001 vstar 1100 classic, with 5k miles on it.

Has been garage kept but has not been cranked in 5 years maybe. The owner just quit riding it. Was no issues when parked.

Gonna have to find out what all I should do before trying to crank it.
I know new gas and battery, maybe clean the carb out.
Still has original tires so they may be needing a replacement.
