clean '89 out west

But I don't know enough about 'em to know if this is a find or a turd.

Upper fairing and tail section are likely Air Tech, the paint looks professional.
Offset single headlight emulates Suzaka 24hr endurance racers.
Flush mount turn signals are aftermarket, some folks hate them...I'm not terribly offended by them. Polished frames were a trend at the time. However, it looks like a period customized late 80's GSXR.
Yosh exhaust is very nice. Overall, it looks pretty could waste your money on worse.
If it was an 1100, I'd be all over it.

...probably too far from stock, to satisfy your tastes Andre.

Nah, it's not for me. I just posted it in case someone closer would be interested. If it were close by, I might contemplate putting a normal front end on there.

Besides, I had two choices - there was that 86 1100... and this recent barn find that is more my style (100% stock, low kms and showroom clean). I'm going to see it tomorrow.

I already have the K6 1K so a lil' smoker might make a fun weekend toy.
