Well guys, she lives. It took about a year and a half, but i got her going. i keep finding myself going out to the garage just to look at it... such a beautiful bike. All i have left to do to have everything going (yeah right, lets be honest) is fix one turn signal that doesn't want to work, and do another re-torque. Surprisingly enough, the only leak i have right now is coming from the head gasket. Hopefully the re-torque will cure that. Thanks for the help everyone gave me!
