My 84 Fj


Here's a fairly current picture of my 84 FJ. It's coming up on 80K and the paint is over 20 years old now. I looking for a spare chin fairing if anyone has a lead. 2HE

My '82 750 Seca, had a couple other Jap 4's over the years just lost the pics, if they even existed.

Just bought this this summer, not vintage yet but pretty old school looking, 1999 ZRX 1100

my 1979/81 cb750k

Here is my cb750k. I bought her as an ebay basket case in highschool about 10 years ago, since then it has been a pleasure learning and wrenching on her. She has 53k on the clock but does haul ass. Ideally one day I would like to get upgrade the suspention both front and rear, replace the lump for an 1100 motor with some fancy japanese fcr carbs. The trouble is I want it to look as stock as possible, so i want to keep the 4-4 exhaust and the wire wheels. But I really enjoy this bike and hope you do too.

This bike hasn't been ridden in over 20 years (ever since I bought a ZX 10). I'm going to get it running pretty soon. I'm really glad that I hung onto it. GREAT memories...

That's one of the most under appreciated bikes of all time.

If I were you, which I'm not so my opinion really means nothing, I wouldn't monkey with it at all. There's not many of these around that haven't been butchered or have one of those big goofy Vetter fairings on them. Keeping as close to stock will always make a bike more valuable. Yours looks pretty nice just the way it is.
Go and find something that's maybe not real pretty to start with. That way you're not too concerned about making major changes to it.
Great bike.
