Well my 86 750 engine just blew itself apart at 100 mph. (Not repairable) maybe the head's ok.
The rest of the bike is in reasonable order.
what would You all see as reasonable options for me to go forward here.
do I get a replacement 750 engine? which one/s will fit and are they likely to be any good given their age.
Do I sell the bike as is. & find replacement.
Do I stick in an 1100 engine & if so what's involved & will it handle good?
I'd be keen to hear some good advice as I must act quite fast since that bike is/was my only transport.

Any A/O engine will fit (of course) either 750, 1100, or 1200 GSXR, Bandit or Katana. I have seen stock 1100/1200 engines go for as much as 2500.00 and as little as 750.00 but the cheaper ones go fast and may need rebuilding. I got a spare 1100 from a Katana for 250.00 that had damaged cases. I used the 88-89 750 case that I had laying around and rebuilt it. And as I used my 88 750 head I sold the Katana head that I did not need for 275.00. I caught the ad right away on dragbike.com and was the first one to call. By the time I PayPal'ed cash to him he had 45 more calls (1HR). To get the most bag for your buck go up to a bigblock but here are a few quick finds:

Just buy my gsxr which is in the for sale section right now. You would have to spend thousands to duplicate my bike anyway and it would be alot of work. Mine is ready to ride and beautiful as it is. Check it out. best
