First effort

Post  desautdw on Tue 21 Jul - 6:53

I recently purchsed a rough running 1980 Kawasaki KZ 1000. I have made a streetfighter before but this will be my first attempt at a cafe racer. I have debated trying to make it original, but I think I will enjoy a cafe bike more.

Yep , i think you'll enjoy it more building up a café then a streetfighter. (It shows off more Very Happy )

Smal Steps

Post  desautdw on Tue 28 Jul - 5:33

Here is a few steps later with new air cleaners on and a couple of body parts off. Would like to make my own cafe seat and custom chain guard, but taking a week off to move my girlfriend up with me. Plan on doing my own painting as well.
