Yeah....it's been over 30 friggin days....

I'm collecting parts.   My rearsets on both bikes were in rough shape (broken shift and brake pedals) and both sets of forks I have are good but the finish is pretty rough on both.   Thanks to a nice fellow from the Netherlands via the YZF750 Facebook group I have some nicer bits on the way.
I have extra front calipers if anybody is interested.

That doesn't look like a project. Is it yours? If so it is sweet.

Thanks guys, I'm excited about it.  This is a runner with clean paperwork.  It needs all the standard maintenance.  It has some of the usual squid PO battlescars but nothing too bad so far.  I have extra parts for it already since I've been collecting for this build.  New ss lines, tires, rear sets, chain/sprockets and other stuff.   It's a cold starter but once it warms up a bit it sounds good and starts right back up.  I'm not giving up on building the other one but I've been looking for an actual runner for awhile to go with it.  Street and track maybe...

Two big issues already fixed.  The clutch lever was toast and so was the janky attempt at a shifter replacement.  I had both parts "in stock".

New 530 chain and stock sprockets first.
