    Dilemma, Dilemma!

    I did the mistake to look for project bikes on Kijiji. I saw my dream bike for sale with the engine not seized and low kilometers.

    I looked for it for 2 years and gave up. They were either too exlensive, high kilometers or a real basket case. Then, started looking again lately and found THE one.

    The dilemma is I LOVE my Honda twin 400T Cafe Racer. It's all done up with no issues at all and rides awesome. May even have a buyer for it to make matters worse. I have had great commons from friends and strangers as well. But.... Found a complete KZ 650 for only $400 with 24k on it.

    It has the power of a 750, but the weight of a 550. Always wanted a four in-line and it has an awsone sound.

    PLEASE, help me decide..... Loosing my glue and sleep over it!

    Yeah, but probably $2500 to bring it up to what I want to do with it.

    Get it anyway. You can set it aside for now until your budget permits you to do want you want to it. It's an especially good deal if you are talking Canadian dollars.

    Yep, it can always wait while you slowly collect a few parts here and there as they can be afforded, then eventually you'll have enough stuff to get started - and still have the 400 to ride along the way.
