This page will be dedicated to the ongoing and finished projects I am working on, this will be motorcycles, and will also include car/truck projects as well.

This is what I started with . 1977 KZ400 I got for $300, It ran, I actually rode it home.

It was really nasty dirty. I love the dog collar battery strap.

This was about an hour later...more dirt

Another view of the crud...

This was about three hours later, I removed about 8 pounds of un-necessary frame peices..

Ahhh...fresh paint and the triple trees installed.

A little mock up after I finished the rims.

Another mock up, after some work on the tank, and after I finished lacing the front wheel.

Another view.

The tank.

Love this mock up view, this is when I started to get excited about the overall look and I got a good feel for the flavor of this project.

Primered tank.

The rear tail piece after I fabbed it up (fiberglass).

Seat foam is on.

Another view.

Finally a rolling chassis with the motor back in, lots of detailing still to be done.

Getting closer...

Another shot.
