hello after posting about ST fuel tank fitting to CSR frame i thought id better put a post in the projects section about my alleged cunning plan! the bike was purchased via ebay a couple of weeks ago along with the 1000 LTD in the back ground it has been of the road since 1995 but seems to have been kept dry ish. the rats and mice have had a good chew on the wiring and the airbox but other than that its not too bad, the engine turns at least! the plan is to make a MK 3 Z1000 thingy . the running gear will be KZ1000 P, wheels , clocks etc. maybe some rearsets to get rid of the horrid standard foot peg mounts. the plan is to use as much kawasaki bits as possible. first pic shows bike as advertised. some body spent a lot of time making parts from stainless including the side panels!!!! the sissy bar and seat have gone in the skip as have the bars and highway pegs. heres some pics

busy weekend getting the rear end back together after a PO cut it off. im sure the handling was great due to the lack of shock brace! work supplied a table for the frame tubing which was the perfect size inside and out,two chair legs for the seat riser tubing and a KZ 400 frame gave up the brace and inner rear mudguard

seat pan is nearly finished not sure weather to body work it and have a seat made to fit in it or to have the whole thing upholstered. dont worry nt going cafe style seat my arse likes a bit of comfort these days!!! hinges came from the kz400 frame and seat road signs seem to be perfect for seat bases! 5mm craft foam worked fine to make a former to place the fibre glass onto seat was made over size so i could cut it down later seat before cutting down to size

another small victory today. indicators fitted. 02-06 Z1000 after buying cheap chinese indicators that only work when they feel like it or you have to bang them to come on OEM was a better choice! it would seem that kawasaki wanted indicators fitted in the reflector slots as they bring them nice and square

after spending time making the bike look better IMO! i thought it was time to see if it runs , as far as i know it has not been used since 1995 so i was expecting a furry inside to the engine but had a nice suprise when the rocker cover came off,clean as whistle oil must have been changed before it was layed up i thought maybe the clutch would be stuck together but again all was good added fresh oil and fuel and she lives. took it for a spin gears seem good and no weird noises apart from the chain rubbing on the centre stand! once the bike is done it will be removed and only used when needed
