New (To Me) Radiator

With thanks to Will England and Mike Turley of the ST Owners Club, I have a new (to me) radiator on my high mileage Honda ST1100. I have the exhaust system from this same motorcycle on the bike currently. The rad was delivered to me at the same time but I haven't needed it until now.

The rad has been in need of replacement lately as the fins are in poor shape and it is heavily gummed up. I was originally planning to remove the original rad to bring it to a rad shop to have it acid bathed and the fins looked at.

Removing the radiator yesterday, I broke a bracket on the rad as I was removing the fan. A seized bolt caused the bracket to twist and crack as I turned.

So my backup radiator was brought into action. Here is the photo.
