Dean, yea, your probably right.... I do already have a lot of stuff on my list, even still.... with the cost of a new shock, not a lot of that $1k is left over.

My initial thoughts on the bike is to keep it stock ish.
FZR 3.5” front rim, RPM front suspension, Fork brace, blue spots w/FZ1 m/c, Galfer lines. Penske shock. RPM spin on filter, UniPods, I like that Avon radial 3D Storm 150/80-16 back tire, so I think I’ll keep the 16” back rim (for now) ......................................

For a start price of $2k, I can afford ~$1k in mods, I’ll have a well sorted, like new 7500 mile FJ....in theft resistant white.

There's a saying over here that someone looking at a situation and seeing things in an unfeasiblly positive manner is "looking through rose tinted glasses".

Pat.....if you can get all of that stuff for ~$1k you're either getting seriously special discounts (like for free  sarcastic)  on those parts prices, or you're "looking through very FJ tinted glasses"  rofl

Or.........maybe you've contracted that virus again that's hit us all......moditis  lol

And......thank you for the offer, I really do hope to take you up on that one day soon  good2

NEVER

NEVER

NEVER

question $’s on projects!   You never know Who may be looking over your shoulder!   lol

Besides, I think Pat made a typo on that - I’m sure he meant $100!

Well at least this shows that you're perfectly sane Pat, like the rest of us, with just a hint of Moditis  good2

 hi Thanks Dave....Dean, yeppers, I know the moditus bug very well.....listen to Chris....he knows all about Uber expensive $$$ and Uber fast .... FJ’s.

Chris, without getting you into trouble, can you give us just a ballpark figure you’ve spent on your FJ?
I would bet $60k+ figuring all the FI and NOS systems you’ve run and all the engines....

I’m glad you got that bike, Pat. I thought about it, but, I really am a “one is enough” motorcycle kind of guy. I love the paint scheme. Perhaps we could make your arrival to get the bike a mini forum event, brats on a grille, and an hour or two of locals in the area wishing safe travels home?

I’m also happy to hear there is a new shock for bikes of that vintage in the works. I’ll need one too, Randy.

Best wishes for a safe holiday for all, and great new bike karma for Pat! I am envious of that machine.

Ted
If Pat gets closer to locking down when he's going to come get it.  That would be great. My place is kinda set up for a get together. Lots of room. 2400 sqft shop and  storage  with a full bathroom downstairs and 1000 sqft living  above 14×24 elevated deck (16' up) An acre of land to camp on.

Dan,
 I apologize for putting you on the spot. That was not my intention. But, it does seem like it might be one of those moments in time where a group of people can make a good time out of one of life’s little events.
If we can stay up on the logistics, and catch some decent weather, it could be a real nice time.

Fingers crossed.

Not putting me on the spot at all. I'm all for it. Like I said my place is kinda set up for that. I think it's a great idea. I would love to show off all my work. Like my motorcycles. My  house is a kind of obsessive creation.

I'd be down for a ride to Wisconsin, baring any bad weather or work schedule.
