Finish motorcycle or build up SS FS?

Those are my two project options.

Motorcycle- 1975 Suzuki GT550. Need to finish building engine, carbs, wiring, seat, suspension. Approximate cost- $250 Approximate time- 4 weeks with current schedule

SS FS- 1995 Catamount URT (unified rear triangle). Frame only, need all parts. Building up as SS for the hell of it. Approximate cost- $1200 Approximate time- 2 weeks with current schedule
