Potential R65 project- If I build it, will they come?

Gentlemen, I have a project that is begging to be worked on. I spend my waking hours thinking about it, pricing out parts, making lists, etc. The trouble is I have two bikes so I want to sell one. But who wants to sell a half finished project? It's like throwing in the towel only but I'm afraid that if I finish it, she won't be worth what I put into her, being an R65 and all.

So far, I've removed the sub frame, built a seat, and replaced front/rear suspension. I'd like to spend another $1,500 on it plus a paint job. Is this a waste of money, or time well spent?

My wish list includes:
dual disc brakes
cleaned up hand controls
m-unit aka new wiring
RFID keyless ignition
new speedo

the early r100 had the MC under the tank,maybe find some british bike gauge housing that would give you the old school look,dual discs -I think donot fit your build if you need more brake start with the new MC and ssteel lines,if that doesnt do it add some aftermarket pads. No need to spend big $.
