    I like the sign, but not that trike.I lean more towards EdRoth style. I got the trike for Way under his asking, but with the condition of it in pics/ video I was willing to take some risk on it for the price.I will know sunday/monday when it arrives! we may have snow by then, yup thats Michigan.

    I like that way better than the absurdly overdone and underpowered orange Sportster abortion. I think some people build that stuff to use up leftovers and make them as gaudy as possible for the show circuit.

    Your Kawasaki has a far superior design and power-to-weight ratio along with a classic girder fork.

    Yes, I think mine is more Ed Roth and less THUNDER DOME! It needs carbs clean, gaskets, lines and fasteners but man I love it, but now the wife wants it.

    Damn, that trike is the shit! That would be perfect for winter riding... still get the wind in your ushanka yet little risk of 'going ho' after hitting a patch of ice.

    The 1000 (1015 cc at 70 mm bore, with same 66mm stroke as 900) was released in 1977.
    The stock KZ1000 cylinder could be bored to 1075cc with a Wiseco kit...some have even stretched them to 1105, but walls get thin.

    I get the feeling this is already a lil hot rod just needs a winter of TLC to get that old feeling back. I definitely want to make a new airbox thinking of fiberglass over a foam mold with some K&N filtration molded in I don't think those shitty airpods are helping what its capable of. Needs Rewired etc.I hope we aint thin already! only time will tell.

    Im gonna get this girl fixed then see about the turbo.I am hoping to pull motor next week.Everything has just sat for 15 years with paint leaking all over fuck, and the electrical was like my work in fifth grade( twist -mash -twist- tape-vroom).I hope to keep some of the color on the tank but am leaning snowcaine flake with candy panels mostly everywhere. Maybe a small cab to help counterbalance in wheelies.Labeling removing and cleaning now. some pics as well

    Got some cleanup to do. Can see the engine number as Z1E, confirming the top case is Z1 900, and from your previous pics, topped with the KZ1000 cylinder. Can see the APE cam end caps, hhmmm, maybe APE cams and valve shim buckets too?

    Cabs are like giant drag chutes. My bro has a C-cab rat rod and I've no desire for those on anything faster than the early 1900s trucks they hail from. Their weight is high and they amplify noise. Cool on a T-bucket show car, highly questionable on a trike you may want to ride more than at slow speeds around the block.

    It looks good without the fuel tank and shows off more of the engine, an even greater advantage if you add cool external speed parts.

    If ya want to play with balancing remember weight and lever arm (weight distance from datum) are what get it done. (How to calculate light aircraft weight and balance is all over the internet but you probably don't need the math.)

    The further forward of the rear axle the better and the denser the weight the smaller. For example a horizontal, removable (bolt to tabs) tube in front of or behind the lower exhaust pipes (or a small Moon style round tank that isn't a tank) could be filled with lead as a counterweight. (You could use a medical oxygen cylinder by bandsawing etc the end off after opening the valve to ensure the pressure is dumped, then cap as you see fit.) It's also good place to put fuel which is heavy so the lower the better. You don't have to run some tiny motorcycle tank or a conventional tank at all. Fuel Altered drag cars put the fuel in front of the radiator for the same reason.

    If you're gonna have serious fun it would be wise to put wheelie bars on it or at least add good solid mounts for same. You could make it two position for ground clearance by using aircraft ball lock pins for one set of pivots, and you can spring load them for shock protection. Copy the car guys or get one from them is the easy way.
