I've got a 1973 Honda SL70 that would be perfect for my 12 year old Granddaughter. I've got my old 1988 Honda XR600R that still makes me smile. And I've got my 2002 YZ250F ...it's dialed in really well for me and HS racing.

All three are really tired. I mean complete rebuilds. Funds are limited. Which one gets the money injection first? I'm talking about like new restores. I love my granddaughter but the selfish side of me wants to chase some more plastic glory.

Which one would you guys work on first?

Grand daughters bike, it's the coolest and an excuse to get her in the shop to learn how to spin a wrench.

Yes sir. I already pretty much decided that but was looking for a really good reason to go the "selfish" route.

I think the SL70 would be the best to put money into and would hold it's value. There are way more Baby Boomers out there for who the SL70 was their first motorcycle. "First motorcycles" can bring in good money when finally sold. People want to relive their youth and an SL70 has more nostalgia power than the 88 XR 600R or the 02 YZ250F.

(Edit: Plus it would be cool for your granddaughter)

If you just really want a selfish reason, think of who's gonna have to wipe your ass when you're old and decrepit. Best to make some good memories now, it'll pay off in the end.
