Question Need some help with my next purchase.

So Im looking for a new project bike. Something I can pick up pretty cheap and fix for fun.

Anyway So I have been looking on craigslist and such. My boss told me to give his friend a call, turns out he has a few older bikes...

So now with the help of you guys, I need to figure out what I want...

See Poll:

and leave comments as to concerns.

The 900ss cr needs a new starter, rebuild the forks, sprockets, chain, tires, and likely a carb clean.

the daytona needs a new regulator, pegs, and a little body damage.

the monster needs carb clean, sprockets, and not sure what else.
