Default Just bought a bike

i just picked up a 1982 honda cb900 today. im not really motorcycle inclined so i really dont know what im doing. its been sitting for about 10 years so idk what needs to be replaced but i have an idea. i want to turn it into a cafe bike. so if anyone has any knowledge on these bikes or has built some cafe bikes please help me out with any suggestions with what i should so. im more or less just thinking about shaving all the turn signals and the big tail light and putting a led strip under the seat.(ANYONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO MAKE A CAFE SEAT PLEASE MESSAGE ME IM LOOKING FOR ONE). i guess i would like some ideas on what to do. thanks

Are you saying you are not inclined, mechanically? OR, you don't know how to ride a bike? OR both?

you need to talk to a vadriven user on here by the name of GNARLEYCHARLIE4U? or gnarleycharlie...somethin close...its on my friends list. i know he does alot of work with older bikes like this.

if you give up at some point and decide to sell the bike, hit me up i might want it lol.
