I'm all about pointlessness.  And it was free.  Well, a case of beer.  But I helped empty the case, so there's that.  But the plan is to fit up a quality suspension to it.

Old thread revitalization.

I have a 350 and Iím about to do the same. These guys are nuts that some flexibility is designed in. They are flexible because itís made of stamped steel and mass produced. My kz1000 would have so much ďdesigned inĒ flexibility itís a death trap. Itís called death wobble and no engineer added it.

Stiffen it. No one likes a limp noodle.

Yea, I've had this thing on the Dragon and I know how flimsy it is.  Hence the reason I welded the seams.  This is a long term project as I've got other brands in the fire to attend to, but one day this thing will be eating sport bikes in the curves even better than it did before.  It's going to be original old school looks with modern/updated suspension, wheels, tires and electrical/electronics.

I went with a 71 CB500 front end on mine... staid with factory wheel sizes for now though.

I just finished assembling the engine so next will be some frame welding. Maybe see you up there one day I ride out of Maryville TN some times.

That would be cool.  I'll actually be up there first weekend in June with my FZ for a rally.  In fact, I'm getting a valve clearance check out of the way and some other maintenance done now while the weather is shit.
