It looks like this might be a multi option type menu, if it is you might want to change to a case statement as that's much neater (and you'd be able to get the options down to a single line each). Something like this (from my current coursework):

case "$INPUT" in
   "1" )  backupMenu ;;
   "2" )  restoreMenu ;;
   "3" )  exit ;;

I'm trying to figure out Bash properly (like using functions and stuff) at the moment. It's not pretty.
