Gauging interest in my 1978 GS550E project

You see, this sweet little 'potential' has been sitting unfinished going on 3 years now. I bought it running with clean clear title and was all stoked to make a classic radical cafe' machine, even started some mods and buying parts. Then, a career move change meant 2 years immersed in getting a degree while working, a 2008 EX-650 fell in my lap that turned into a tribute bike/future granddaughter machine, and then I changed careers. The 550 jut sits and I fear I have lost interest, what with a 2016 ZG-1400 about to fall in my lap and 2 parts sculptures that have been waiting to be assembled for even longer than the GS.

Bike has about 16K showing on the clock, and is 98% complete. Tank is dentless and rust free, missing one side cover but I was not planning on using them.

the '78 550E was the first Jap middleweight that went with FR/RR disc brakes and a 6 speed transmission. Chain drive and relatively light for the day. Has the mag wheels.

I have shortened the tail, detabbed, and reinforced the frame adding bosses for the 2008 R6 rearsets I have to go on as foot controls. Frame and swinger are ready for blasting and PC or paint. New parts included with all the stock bits include: KYB N2 reseveoir shocks with adjustable ride height.
All balls steering stem bearings.
New swingarm baearings
new shift shaft
new clutch pushrod
many new gaskets for case covers, new seals for two shafts, new exhaust gaskets and fork seals.
Original Triumph accessory clubman cafe bars

I am sure there are many smaller bits I am forgetting too. Already had some trim parts PC's red. Have new tires to go on rims, and a manual. I probably have $800.00+ invested, but am willing to listen to offers and will deliver within a reasonable distance.

Wish I had the room. I had a 78 750 at one point and always wanted to do this to it.

If I were looking for another project, I'd probably give you $3-500 for it?
