Wanted to buy a set of 2nd Gen Wheels

And ended up with the whole thing. Didn't really want another project but couldn't pass this up.

Re: Wanted to buy a set of 2nd Gen Wheels

It's an 89 but has almost an entire spare set of 1990 1100 bodywork. Even came with the service manual. Paid $600 so I figure I can get my money out of it even if I had to part it out. But the plan is to get it back on the road in the original blue/white scheme.

Re: Wanted to buy a set of 2nd Gen Wheels

I am going a different route with my 17" conversion. Therefore, I have front and rear 1989 GSXR 750 17" wheels 5 bolt rear Cush drive? They will need to be powder coated but will work for now.

Hah! It's going to be fun working on these and watching them come back to their original condition. I need to get back to The Netherlands again. Love it there.

yup. down in the valley. thought I'd see if there was any interest on CL before I tear into it. Probably won't be but thought it was worth a shot.
