Everything I see on the internet is a start of a project that never gets finished.

yeah, that's what I saw too, and thinking that there may be a reason for that hahahaha

I am a welder by trade with a mandrel tubing bender and a reckless amount of carelessness towards this bike.


why are we even having this discussion? chop that shit! i think the 18" rear wheel off a kz550A will be plug and play. all the 550s including the 81GPZ had leading axles forks.

Haven't finished mine, but I still like the KZ550 precisely because they're unloved.

Shoot for this yammy 550...check the date before you hate. This was a space rocket in 2010.
