Just bought a 1980 Kawasaki 650

I just bought this bike from a gentleman who was going through kidney failure for the past 20 years and has had the bike parked since 2012 (6 years). My girlfriend and I are restoring it and we had to replace the fuel line. Getting it all apart and off was easy. Now the putting it back on is the tricky part. Does anyone have any tricks or tips on getting the fuel line back on? It’s a very tight space and we have tried many different ways.

You could put the tank on the bike so it is only sitting on the stoppers on the frame then tip it up from where it would meet the seat. Using the stoppers as a pivot point it will allow you to work under the tank.
