super bike
Wednesday, March 14, 2012 5:21 PM
$500
1977 kz650 c1

bought it didn't run


first version



second time around




couldn't decide on paint so i went mad max



Rode everywhere. One trip was 400 miles round trip to brown county from southbend indiana

blew the motor, had a spare.... it didn't fit. REASON BEING it's not another 650cc it's a 1200cc with a fresh big bore making it 1289cc


didn't like not having two seats to carry hot chicks so i set out to change that

welded in an r1 gas cap and bung


didn't like that box aluminum swingarm so i made my own








quick sketch of the exhaust


some back bone bracing


swingarm almost done




cut up the $300 supertrapp header (i'm not a dammmmn purist)



made a windowed clutch cover when i first swapped but it needed the window cut and resprayed


this is where i'm at today



end of april or my mid-may is my projected completion

wish me luck.

WOw I'm not a bike guy and I don't usually comment on the bike threads but that is awesome! So f'ckin cool. I just like how that bike is yours. I would love to ride that around my campus here at Purdue, with all these frat bro's in pretty little 250 cc crotch rockets.

I am also working on a cafe project for my wife you guys might like




didn't get much work done lately, been playing on the cr250r

Hmm... like the fab work but leaps and bounds from a superbike....



Re: super bike
Thursday, March 22, 2012 2:19 PM
not finished yet?

if you want to split hairs here, Putting a "vintage" in front of superbike would settle you down?

it's not a modern 1098 or a EBR 1190 or an r1

but then again i have kept this budget under $1750

i'd pass that as pretty damn super
