Hey guys, here's my full frame off restoration. Took a year and a half of elbow grease and NOS parts search. This model is as rare as they come since only produced in Canada in 1983. It's actually rarer than a ELR or Superbike Replica....! A lot of work but it was worth it....! Now just gotta wait for spring...:)

Neat. Very sharp. I did not know the KZ1000 came in that paint scheme.

What a beauty! I had the KZ750 L3 for awhile with the same trims, miss that thing! Definitely one of their best paint schemes and overall body styling. It'd take that over an ELR any day! The 750 has a matching front square headlight cowl to the paint scheme that would look pretty cool on that guy.

I actually also had a 750 L3 that i bought brand new in 1983....it was my first big bike and i'll always remember when i picked it up at the dealership, starting her up and feeling power for the first time...!! I was hooked from then on on 8 valve Kawi's.... :-)
