I just bought a 1980 kz1000 from a estate sale .
I'm trying to learn about it since the owner has passed and the family didn't know anything about it.
He was a motorcycle drag racer and the bike has a lot of aftermarket parts and lots of new spares.
It's name is bullet as it's engraved into the steering head.
I'm leaning toward a resto mod and would like a modern suspension and spoke wheels in a wider rim.
I'll be doing lots of research here.
Welcome and congratulations,
that looks like a well kept machine, maybe you could consider taking care of the few things necessary to put her back on the road and ride a season while you figure out what you really want to do.
Fresh shocks , fork springs and new tires are a good idea, I can't tell if those are newer shocks from your pic but if the PO was a racer he may have already taken care of that.
These bikes handle great in stock form with just a few mods
