I purchased an inexpensive 1980 Kawasaki KZ750 Twin from a friend. Here’s what it looked like when I got it:
After having some engine work done by Al at Silver Bullit Cafes, I started work by flipping the stupid clubman handle bars the proper direction. My assumption is that the previous owner discovered that the front turn signals were too big, so they just put the bars on backwards. It was an easy fix.
That color, that hideous “ruby” red maroon color, had been sitting in the sun for too long and had turned into a sort of pinkish lavender color. Doing what any self respecting man would do, I rattle-canned the beast.
The next steps are: Replace the seat, paint the front fender, paint the 6″ black racing stripe down the tank, clear coat everything.
