I'd 100% agree with Andy's "you get what you pay for". I bought a 'budget' 1100 Sport a few years back, and it came to me as a royal POS. At this point, I've easily put my purchase price back into the bike. That said, I'm frankly super happy I went this route. I'd worked on Guzzis and BMWs previously, but I've learned a TON about the 1100 Sport in having to address concerns with the forks, brakes, electrical system, transmission, top end, etc. If you're willing to put a bunch of time into a project and aren't super worried about getting your money back out of the bike, a project Sport can be a lot of fun. ^Caveat to that, I am remembering I messaged Andy earlier this year when I was damn near fed up with it and ready to sell. He helped convince me to take some time, then reconsider. Thanks again for the recommendation for patience, friend!
