Keep it alive!

My first real street bike, a LTD400. 'Leaky' was a god forsaken deathtrap but I loved her!

Then at 19 I moved into the four cylinder world. 'Cloud 9' was a 6600 mile KZ650C1.

I rode her all over the place.... Then she was stolen!

So after a few years of trying to off myself on crotch rockets, I found 'Barby' (KZ650B1) on her side under a pine tree & fixed her up for the first couple seasons I had her.

Now she's getting completely rebuilt (my first try at this) I'm trying to do her right!

New bearings, rattle canned the frame, rebuilt forks with 20wt oil, laced 19x2.5 & 17x3.5 aluminum hoops & super bike bars so far. 750 motor, one off exhaust, R1 sets & custom seat in the works!
2006 ZX10R 'Fiona' The new street beater.

1974 XL350 'Buttons' Scooter trash goes flat track racing!
