Hi all, can someone point me in the direction of a build thread on an Z1000 chop? I am about to pull the trigger on an 82 in a plunger frame, needs a bit of work but the price is very good. Thanks in advance.

Drop this in your browser search: " Z1000 site:www.chopcult.com " minus quotes, it will give you every instance of Z1000 on here including yours. Most of the fellas dropping sport bike motors in frames here hail from the UK.

Thank's search worked. Now I am hesitant as a bit of digging and the motor is in Armen Saviour frame. A nice looking scoot, but 100+ horses and a frame that doesn't like corners!?!?

I pulled the trigger and bought it, it would have been rude not to at the price! Now have to get it home! It's a chopped and raked with 6 over forks, double front discs. But here's the rub the front wheel is a ComStar from a cb650c. Now I likee these wheels on period Honda but not chopped Kawa's. Any suggestions on what spoked wheels will fit? I would love invader mags but I'm a poor boy living in shitville France.
