    best sub-grand bike?

    yup, i'm cheap.

    looking for a fixer-upper, something to screw around on, learn the basic bike mechanicals on, etc.

    been riding all my life, but on dirt. have limited experience on the street, only consisting of my enduro and friends bikes.

    so, if you have a grand to spend, what would you look to get?

    You want a two cylinder jap bike of some sort. Most of them are pretty good from the 70's-80's. Individual condition is more important than the merits of one model over another.
