When I had the bike repainted Candy Apple Blue in the 1980's, I had the gold stripes follow the original KZ650C2 stripes.
The space between the stripes was filled in with gold.

I bought a little Cafe fairing.
I left it with the painter and he will paint it the same blue.

With the Cafe Racer faring your bike looks sporty and agile, a good choice

I like the look of your new fairing, but I LOVE the way your Rickman looked.
Is this thing working? Is this thing on?

Got a smaller front fender from:
Cafe Stainless Fender Kawasaki W650 Vintage Cafe Racer (motolanna.com)

Fits the 18" wheel better and lower:

That front guard {fender} looks way better, Its amazing just how out of balance a wrong fender can make a bike look...
