Holy shit!


Coolest tank ever.

And I'm loving the plate mount too. That'd go right over my shaft drive.

Hi, I just popped in to see where my pics went...  :)

The pipes are stock... I cut about 18" off of them and ground off the stock mounting plates. Then I sandblasted the chrome off, welded in a small baffle (it sounded awesome open) for a little backpressure and toning it down a little since I tend to do alot of riding as well as cross-state stuff.

Oh yea, they're painted with grill paint.

Cheers!
Claude

congrats!   very sharp   8)

i never thought a kawasaki could match the 1970s sohc hondas for a UJM brit bike cafe, but you've proven me wrong.   :P

one question if i might........is the tank painted or au natural? 

again, congrats on a job well done.  you should tell your family what a brilliant job you did!!!   ;D

It's been cut along the bottom edge to give more of the "manx" look, the stock square flip cap and filler neck were cut out and replaced with a Harley unit and the color is powder coat.
Thanks for the kudos... I built it because it was available and cheap... kinda lucked out on how it came out and lotsa good people helped me with it.

 I love it though...

Please tell me more about the seat pan / tailpiece..

I am trying to decide what to do with my own KZ1000, a P-series, and this looks pretty close to what I want.
