Wish this guy was asking about half as much. I would buy the pile of parts (yep i have posted this before):
1991 Suzuki GSX-R 750

I have wanted an early gsx-r for a long long time.

well hell. I think I will call him up and off him a chinese pitbike, 25 dollars in shiny imitation gold coins (street value: 13 cents), a 1989 Kennedy coin, an angry tabby cat, a dead mouse (proof the tabby cat is in working order...), one obsolete rifle cartridge (i think it fits a carcano actually), and a thanksgiving hat which looks like a turkey sitting on one's head. :D

Also, the pitbike is a bit of a project. It doesnt have an engine, wheels, swing arm, triples, tank, seat, forks rear shock, frame or controls. Its actually a side cover, a broken front fender and a sticker. But the sticker probably kicks ass. If i could read Chinese and/or Japanese I would verify the ass kickingness of it.

He had help from others also, didn't he?

Carcanos make a most excellent platform to rebarrel to 7.62x39mm. Or 38/357mag/357maximum. Lots and lots of ammo available was undersize for the bore. Plus lots of shot out bores.

I would give two dozen bagels for a running cb175. I need a beater. And I have not had luck finding a frame for this GS500. Certainly not for bagels.

Mine is an actual WW2 bring back.
It is the very short model with folding bayonet.
I think they get an unfairly bad wrap. Not a tack driver by any means though
