Guess I'm a seca ii owner now, so hello! SF Bay area, computer puncher by day, planning on fixing up the dirt-cheap (for good reasons) bike I just got, one of those mythical "winter projects" i keep hearing about. Otheriwise, it's my second bike - first was a 1990 kawasaki zephyr 550 - great beginner bike, but not terribly quick (0-60 eventually, as they say). Sold it about 3 years ago, and been missing one since then.

Moderate experience wrenching on cars (mostly external stuff - all the engine knowledge i got from youtube), generally handy with wood/metal (one day i'll get a welder, sigh), so we'll see how it goes :v

PS: the bike has been sitting since about 2000, so we'll see how it goes!
