Wow! A stick shift! I've always wanted one of those!:lol:



Even better: it's a left-hand stick shift without a foot clutch. I guess the seller has two left hands. :)

From that ad:

Runs, good compression just been sitting a while.

Huh? It's got no exhaust. :unsure:

I noticed the exhaust too. Gauges are also missing. Quite sure the 900 bucks does not include trivial stuff like the title. Also noticed something stupid going on with the rear wheel. It's not right. Like it's yet ANOTHER tricked out "race" swing-arm bike that runs, rides and handles like...um.. crap. :whistle:

Look and learn folks. This is how it's done. Pure custom. Push it home TODAY! lol

Those handlebars look like someone stopped in a hurry and wound them a few times. And the tail light....well I guess it could be used as a left signal light while braking. Now what to do with those pesky holes in the fender? Maybe paint a smiley face around them?

I like how the taillight lens is wrapped in black tape.

It's not clear from the picture whether it's electrical or duct tape, but with a quality custom project like this there is probably some of both.

I try never to objectify other persons mechanical/appearance projects but this "thing" is just hanging fruit. Note missing throttle flute grip, possible usage of Arlen Darryl Ness hidden throttle control in jockey shifter.

One of those items where I can clearly hear the seller telling me that he used the "good tape" so water wouldn't get in or something.

Hardrock because ART is soo personal and is always interpreted differently, i'm going for Mr. Bill on the fender. Where is Mr. Sluggo?

Oh No!! Not Mr Bill!!

The photo below was how the headlight was mounted in a Z1 that I restored. The PO was a mechanic, which I guess is why he used 6 pieces of duct tape instead of just two. The second photo shows how he improved the ignition.

I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.
