I just got back from looking at a possible project bike. It is a 1989 zx6r, with 14,xxx kms on it. (yes. i didn't believe it, but they are genuine.) The guy i am buying it from is my best mates brother-in-law. The bike has been sitting in his shed, "getting restored :roll: " for the last 6 years, and he bought it from a good friend of his who was also "restoring it :roll: " Anyway, it has sat for to long and the battery is flat now, so he can't get it started. When he bought it, he rode it home from Maryborough (4 hours away) and reckons it didn't miss a beat. He wasn't allowed to push it passed 140 though as his wife was nervously following him home. He has pulled of the whole fairing, bogged up some crack, sanded and primed it. Just needs the top few coats now. I have a mate that does custom airbrushing and will give me an awesome price on it if i want. The guy wants $1200 for the bike. Anyway, my questions: Should i bother restoring it for when i am unrestricted? (9 months, or sell early and buy something else.) Would i be looking at alot of work on the engine? (rings etc) Roughly how much would i be looking and what would be the best option for working the engine? (get a new one, reco, etc.) How much for a pair of yoshi pipes? (or cheaper ones) Any other advise would be appreciated too, i will probably buy it tomorrow night, but need your advise first. Feel free to ask question if it will help my cause i need as much help as possible here. :? Thanks guys!!
