I'm a founding member of a women's riding group in Brisbane (called The Litas Brisbane) and a few of us have bought shares in a 1979 KZ200 with the aim of rebuilding it into a street tracker for our members to use. We meet most Friday nights at Skinny's Social Garage at Bowen Hills to work on it and talk through design ideas. The bike is running and we've checked over all the electrics (which thankfully are good!) so it seems to be a solid base for us to start with. Our biggest issue at the moment is the front brake (which is pretty much non-existent) so we're hoping to swap it out with a KZ750 set up if we can source one. We're also looking at whether we need to replace the spokes front and rear, but if the current ones are deemed safe and aren't seized then that will definitely save us a bit of money to spend on paint etc.
I'm really looking forward to utilising the wealth of knowledge on this forum to help us on our bike build journey!
