Personally, I like the 700 better, since it has heavier cyl sleeves. Then again, Im biased. I suggest checking Craigslist, even out of your area. M_Angell had one in Mich, but most is gone now. I got the engine... *weg*
700s will be rare, since were only made for the US and only one year....if youre looking for a nice resto, can I suggest an EN 454LTD ? More common, easier to find parts, and they are out there, cheap....I sold one sans title, for $100, almost complete, and a buddy got one for $60 at a scrapyard which was a roller with engine. They were nice bikes too...ENs make nice bobbers too because of the frame config. Single backbone.
...oh, by the way....you can paint your engine black if ya want...just use VHT paint...mine was black already, I went over it with a black wrinkle finish...
