Clean 93 GSXR 1100 Fighter or keep stock?

Newbie to forum but was selling these new in 86'
Stumbled across this bike locally. 36k. plastics and tank are great for year. Had every intention of doing bars lights and new tail but after poking around seems these should be left alone at this point if they are in reasonably good shape.
I have $1500 invested in it so it wont hurt my feelers either way but I hate to part it out if I know I could find something similar money to cut up.
Looking for opinions. Will post some pics later today.

Thanks!

If it is in decent shape, it will appeal to some one who appreciates that they are only original once...and maybe that's you!
Survivors are cool.

Looking forward to seeing some photos.

yes, survivors are worth keeping in original condition. plenty of other bikes to modify.

Took kids to NYC and phone got hacked. What a mess.
I am keeping it stock. Took a bunch of pictures and realized I am nuts to break it. It is a pig but no amount of help will make it a stripped 1000....

Thanks!

I was almost gonna kill you.
These water cooled 1100s are the new retro sports touring bikes.

I cant stand it when I see even decent bikes, let alone something already in good shape, hacked up into "street fighterzzz" that might be just as bad as taking any classic bike and attempting a cafe racer look, or lowering and stretching a sport bike along with running open headers (my Frankengixxer was an exception)
