    I see a lot of usable parts, some are very hard to find...pretty much everything except the frame, wheels/tires, shocks & seat cover. The HL ear appears fairly straight, as does the front end assembly. Those later seat pans hold up quite well, too. I wouldn't be surprised if the wiring is still mostly intact, also. Someone with a good `79 frame could source most of the parts needed to complete a bike in one shot.

    There may be more truth than poultry in that sentence. Look at the engine guard, square tabs for the plug guard mounts...that's an early production detail.

    That looks like a black tag on the steering neck.

    Might be interesting to see how many usable parts escaped the vultures...and how much of that bike is plant food.

    Judging from the rusted out lower pogo's, I was thinking that the left side of the frame is probably pretty thin.

    Yep, the bike in the first pic was probably ok until the tractor with the rotary cutter ("bush hog") made the 3rd pass over it.
