When I was in the middle of renovating my daughters newly bought apartment, painting, putting up wallpapers, laying a new hardwood floor and upgrading the electric wiring an interesting ad showed up on our equivalent to Craigslist.A 1984 Gpz1100 mostly original, but only running on starter fluid and the guy was asking a thousand bucks, and this time it was close, in the suburbs of Stockholm.We let the guy roast for a few days and then Bobby, a Honda restro modding buddy of mine went to look at the bike.Bobby told the guy that we will end his misery and cater for the poor bike but a thousand US was to much for a non runner.So with a solid, mostly original bike with a box of original parts was ours for a staggering 800 USD. Unfortunately Bobby decided that this bike was to sweet, so he wanted to be a part of it so I had to agree to shared custody.So for the first time we are considering a original restore (except for the exhaust), but only the future will decide, first we need to get the DFI sorted and then bike running.

I've just spent the last few years restoring one of these. Exact same model in galaxy silver.

Good luck with the restore. Great bike when they're running right!
