Hi Mc Tavish, not a problem on the ZR7, it was in NSW though at Hills Motorcycle Wreckers.
I have got parts from them before sent down with no problems at all. Pretty sure it is a 99 model as well.

Thanks to everyone for the input so far, some great advice and ideas have been put forward.
Might take me a few days to digest it all and get a game plan together. Cheers.

Lucked out on a ZRX Swing arm the other day for a good price. I am sure something else will come up soon though.
Getting the frame braced by a very good shop in the next few weeks, I don't trust my welding skills to do it at home....
Found some good engine bits from a ex kwaka land speed racer within a few hundred kays, so it is all slowly coming together.
Hopefully I can get everything sorted for a build within the next 6 months or so.
Really want it sorted by the end of this year at the latest.
This site has been a goldmine for information so far! Hopefully I can add something to it over the course of this build in the near future.

Dales rear swing arm is off a ZRX1100, I know I have the same basic setup.   However, there is a company call MotoGPWorks that sells a exact S1 swingarm replica for about $1300.00 bucks.  I found that the ZRX1100 setup is plenty strong enough, and raises the rear about an inch, thus slightly reducing the rake angle. I have about 3500 miles on my zrx1100 swingarm and I can definitively say it makes a huge difference in handling.  I also, at the same time, increased the swingarm pivot bolt to a 20mm using a ZRX rear axle, it fits perfectly.  I believe the last iteration of the twin shocker GPZ/J models frames are pretty dang good handling.  Their biggest issue was the spindly rear swing arm (frame wise) and slop in the bearing to pivot bolt connection.  Goes without saying the forks and rear shocks were lethal in stock form.  I swapped out the rears for a set of zrx1100 KYB's, which are light years ahead of the stockers, the forks were re-worked with  RaceTek springs and gold valve cartridge emulators.  I re-worked the emulators to get a tighter seal and a progressive type high speed valve spring.  I fine tuned the fork oil as well...this made a huge difference.  These old forks have way too large oil passage holes, they require thick heavy oil to actually dampen.  With emulators installed you can actually have high speed and low speed dampening.
