Don't really know of anyone who makes a weld-on hard tail for the KZ... We do. :D

I don't know how I missed a picture of the whole bike in bare metal... Has a killer "Alien" tank on it. The whole thing came together really well.

Cheers.

Nice touch on the dimple die'd fender bracket. Some smart touches on this thing, like the grease fitting on the brake pivot, and the rear master cylinder mount. Keep up the good work man, details like that really pay off...

Coming from you, that means a lot. You build some super sick bikes! Much appreciated.

I like the frame a lot, and how the fender is mounted. The only thing that gets me (on any bike) are those curved back sissybars. To me, they just look like they got caught on something and bent backwards unintentionally. I like em stiff, straight and fully erect.

That's what the customer ordered. I'm not really a sissy bar fan unless it's huge, ridiculous, and will hold all my shit on a road trip. Big, straight, erect, and covered in shit.

Oh God. would anyone be mad if I said "thats what she said"

I like the single downtube behind the motor. changes the frame enough to make it unrecognizable. Fan of that master cylinder mount too.

I gotta say that I dont like the hardtail. It looks too pointy. But thats my soap box. Great details Great work.

Have you seen my XS? (on here, XS Drop Seat...) Lot's of flowing lines... :) Customer we built this for just wanted a simple hard tail design. I like lines. I like lots of shape. This was just a clean, simple, KZ hard tail. :cheersmate:

Big, straight, erect, and covered in shit.

That could be a little misconstrued. haha

When you weld, do you burp your gun? You know.... zap...zap...zap...zap?

I only ask because of the pic with the closeup of the rear master.

Yeah, it was in response to the other straight and erect comment. Just a little play on words. Haha. And yes. Some stuff that is kind of just a quick deal and thin gauge gets, "zap zap zapped." Good eye. Hahahaha.

Good ideas on this build. I am liking that you took the time to think about the fender having to move with the wheel as the chain stretches. And the rear brake stuff is trick. Easy solution that isn't so easy to envision. Keep it up.

Hopefully some of this will help others down the road as they fab up their own bikes. We have quite a few years under our belts at the shop, so that always helps with the fab work... But just like everyone else, we get stuck trying to figure out how to make something work and look good.

Duo on the brake set up aslo the fender mount will be the way I do them from now on.

Thanks dudes. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

slick move on removing the back of the cradle and putting the seat post in.is that a re-use of the triangle motor mount plates?
looks nice and clean,

Yeah, when we added in the new down-tube we also added an engine mount to it... But without re-using the triangles, the engine would never come out.

i hate when people hard tail one and leave the big gusset for the swingarm mount.when just a little more material and work and the look is 100 percent better.
