    Great find! How many miles? Looks like some service and minor detail work and she's 9 of 10. :D

    Looks like a very sweet project. You might want to feel along the bottoms of the mufflers for thin spots where moisture collected. Sometimes all that's left is chrome. Do the same where the exhaust pipe makes the bend. If the baffles are gone, VW chrome muffler tips will nicely fit into the mufflers.

    I really like the look of this but can't quite place it, looks almost like a British twin but can't think of anything with a head like that, anyone know?

    I'm going to go out on a limb here, and speculate that you're not married. :lol3

    I think you list is close but the last two are (my guess):

    Yamaha Seca 550
    Honda XR650L

    I always thought that light blue one was just a KZ1000, the Z1-R being a tad different. I am not go on the Kwaks though...

    The blue/white is 1986 GSXR-1100. The gauge cluster and paint is the key.

    Nah, if you look at that tiny front wheel and brake it's smaller; 250 or 400 like Lornce mentioned.
