I picked up a cheap 81 KZ650 H1 to play with and like everything else I buy it turned into a bigger project that what I had planned. The engine turned out to be crap so I gutted the bike, stripped the frame a buddy epoxy painted it. Picked up another engine and different tank from the local salvage. I've got the wiring to go through, making a tail piece and fenders.

Great site, you guys have some very cool bikes.

Here is what I started with.

Starting to look like a bike again.
