we always knew when it was Luke behind us, there was no other bike that sounded like his, not even close!

Every time Luke fired it up in camp you could see heads snap as people tried to figure out what that was

Awesome! Great video clips Luke and fantastic photos Allan!

I love the soundtrack of the CBZR...

It looks and sounds like everyone had a great time!

Progress...

A few pics and comments, Luke can weigh in later with a more full report.

This Saturday morning a very good friend and someone who has helped on many projects over the years came by for the day to work on my vintage twin. As Randy is 6'5", It ocurred to me that it might be interesting to have him sit on the CBRZ-650 for perspective;



Looks like it was made for him!

We got to work on our project and a little later Luke and Corey rolled in and got right to work. I must have been awfully preoccupied, it seemed like in no time I turned around and all that was left of Luke's bike was a pile of parts;



They did some welding on Luke's bike and even jumped into do a bit of creative metal work on my frame;



Then they got busy cleaning, grinding and sanding on Luke's frame and all the various parts he had fabricated or modified in order to give them a few coats of paint;



If your wondering what Luke has in his hands, it's a can of paint and heat gun;



Corey painting a myriad of exotic hand built parts;


Looking forward to seeing the bike painted and all put back together!

The last time I was there I rode that bike, now it is a pile of parts

Well at least we have 11 days before tech inspection

Reassembly...

Luke's long journey back to the MK1 is nearing completion.

When I returned home from work yesterday afternoon;







And then this morning, went out to check his progress from the night before;



It is really looking good with it's battleship gray (appropriate name) paint!

Going to Mexico and riding the MK1 is probably going to seem like a vacation after this build!

More Progress...

When I got home last night, there he was working away, but still smiling.

Here he's building the front mounting plate for electricals;



A little later in the evening, plate is on and wiring is proceeding;



This morning, lots of progress was made;



Closeup of wiring and roto packs, front to back;







Mag 7? Luke don't need no stinkin' Mag 7, just look at those roto packs!

Man 'o man, awesome progress! I dig the Rotopax "saddle" mount and the paint looks great.
