haha i guess you meant to say sydney* is like that??
its funny because some mates nicknamed me "sinny" so a little confusing.....

i think my bike may already attract homo's due to the leather tank suspenders.....(not that theres anything wrong with that)!!!

i'll check out that fork wrapping idea.....
what is crc?
at one stage i wanted to wrap the forks with exhaust wrap to match the pipes..... i did it and thought it looked real shit....so took it off straght away....

i was thinking about a similar design to the triumph speedmaster shrouds....
with the bottoms aswell?? thats if i cant get the boots.....

im also going to ditch the bars in favour of some clip ons.....
i am however going to put them above the triple....thus lowering the front a tiny bit more......

Great build! I didn't know the kz750 came in a twin. My cousin has a kz750 LTD four with the bottom end slightly taken apart for a starter clutch replacement. Everything on your build so far is prefect. My vote for the wheels..keep the stockers if you can.

i have clip-on's on my kz650 and i like them. definitely gives the bike a lower ride style and fits the direction i'm going in. i plan on wrapping the up fork area with black hockey tape, that's another option. also, my pipes are being wrapped in black.

i guess we'll see what happens re: my clip on situation......

1 of the things i hated the most about this bike was those big horrible pillion rearsets....they looked shit and i had always thought about getting some made out of billet then painting them.....
i was looking at it the other day and said "f#ck it lets cut it"

heres some shots......


cut along one of the supports


abit of black and it looks factory

I love the bike, gives me some ideas. I also am putting USDs and spokes on a 750 twin, that pic tells me it IS a fantastic idea. I like what you did to the big exhaust hanger/rearset lumps, they truly are ugly stock.
