Oldie but Goodie...

[/IMG]Here's my ride.
1985 GPz 550
otherwise referred to as a ZX550A2.
Purchased NEW in 1986.
Mods: NONE
Absolutely bone stock. The only "upgrade" was the tires.
Currently have 15,625 miles on the odo

She's showing her age a little bit, so this year Im doing some refresher stuff so she looks new again.
If I can figure out how to post a pic, I'll add it here...

Probably going to be a while... Its going to be a work in progress and process. Its the only bike I have, and with gas prices the way they look, Im not taking it off the street anytime soon! Along with 1 son in college and another racing MX, my money isnt really my own right now.

Took the bike to a buddy of mine that owns a body shop. He said to fix my tank and repaint it would be about $500. Then if I decide to do the whole bike it will run about $900 to $1000. Guess Im going to keep it looking like this for a little while... Do want to get it redone, but need to save the $...
