I have a personal limit of $1000 for a do me upper(not rideable ) .Buy the time you get it home its cost you about $1200-1400 unless your real lucky . My last project
(tlr) was 1400 kls return in my ute .

That big Suzuki looks mint.
May be an i.d number of the bike add would be good as it hard to find them twice .

Looks like the SOHC F2 Gus - definitely worth restoring as it was the last Honda 750cc before they put the twin camshafts up top. Although the tank striping looks a bit F1 (not the color though). Doesn't matter, both are hard to find and hence collectible.

what`s your criteria here Gus, before or after?


I`m guessing both!


I want a CBX1000, and play with it, not strictly as this one, but must tinker.

Yep - this was Waffo's outfit, his last post in May 2013 announced he was selling it and Sean Kelly from Bathurst was going to build him a rig on an ST1100, the Bandit was a little too small for his 6'6" frame.  Not sure if the sidecar is still with him, he was from Bowral if the latest add gives a location.

BTW those lower fairings were a copy that Sean made from my originals, he's not too bad a hand with the old fibre glassing.  He has his own small paint booth, so most of his rigs are fully repainted including the complete bike.
