    Depends on the day...
    The Gsxr needs a head gasket/oil seal but runs great now that I run some fresh fuel through it. The gs1000 has a stuck ring or junk valve seal in #1 cylinder, but still runs and all electrics work....but will be getting a total AMA superbike period correct resto....the rgv is going to need quite a bit yet. My fzr1000 has a burnt up generator, and the Nsr needs help but runs regardless of appearances....everything else fires up when they have a battery and fuel...
    Oh...the CBX seem to have a generator problem too, but runs strong.

    My problem is....when I have money to fix one completely, I end up finding another deal I can't live without. And end up with one more project to rebuild

    seems like my life......you've got more money and space for the projects though.

    I've got countless bits of NSRs I've bought and scrapped, an Aprilia and a working roadbike (when I get the track fairings off)

    A two stroke addiction for sure. I've had my eye out for a tz for years, when I bought my RS250....passed up a reverse cylinder to buy it....sometimes I wonder if I made the right choice...
    But I love my RS....they are works of art in every way
    Love to have your collection....that VF1000R I see back there is another one I let get away from me.....keep em alive

    Tzs are getting harder to find every day... if you're going to pop for one, better find one and jump on it.

    Another two stroke saved to ride again

    Titled and plated, and completely gone through... revived after 20 plus years of darkness. This old stroker really sings now.

    WoW nice find you got there man, love 250's and this two look like awesome projects specially for the price you got em for!. Best of luck with them, can't wait to see 'em finished.

    PS: Awesome collection overall, nice to have someone like you saving them I have to say as jealous as I am.
