I would be happy to race against that zx14 with my stock KZ650. I get to pick the road. ;)

It's good to see you are sticking with your project :woohoo: , It is just so cool to see the amount of thought and engineering/fabrication that went into this, just beautiful!!! I think you will really enjoy riding it when all is done. I am getting a lot of ideas from your build especially around the swingarm pivot you fabbed and the rear sets, many thanks!! .......and that is quite the back tire on your ZX....... :evil:

Yes thats a victory hammer it belongs to a friend of mine who brought it in for a chrome wheel swap, the zx14 is in for the fat tire kit, the only one that belongs to me is my pride and joy kz1000 , the space belongs to my friend who has been kind enough to give me an area to work. Thanks
