The only things I could see that needed removed, was that windscreen, and years of dust.

Yeah there's nothing like the patina of a 36 year old motorcycle.

That's close to what mine looks like. Reminds me that I still need to do an overhaul on the head.

If the F motor is solid I'd be tempted to use that engine instead. From my limited personal experience, my F would run circles around my K. And the bike the K motor was in was waaay lighter than my F. About 75 lbs lighter.

The 77/78 K motors are based on the 75/76 f motors. In the overall scheme, the 78f motor was actually the strongest with the 78k just a bit behind it.
