I am back from my one day, 1100 km trip to Vienna.
Bought a lot of classic Z-Kawasaki parts.
With that a fully modified B1 with an Upsidedown front fork !!!
OK, admit that this was the main reason why I have been there ;-)))
It is already mounted as a rolling chassis (incl. motor) together with matching front wheel and brake of a ZX9R !
Rear swing arm is a large square aluminium one and a modern mag wheel as well.
And another B3 frame, a B1 motor, …
All the parts are still in the trailer. Will take some photos tomorrow ;-)))

WOW Michael you never seem to sleep. That sounds like a great haul and some interesting project work ahead of you.

Wow that looks like it can be made into a Fun Machine! 🙂6th April 2014 at 3:14 pm #11392
Front fork, wheel, brake is Kawa ZX9R, triple trees ?
Adopted to match Twins head stock bearing.
Rear swing arm I have to ask again, rear wheel is ZZR500 (ZZR600).
Rear shocks are Kawa Z1000.
Frame is changed seriously!
Rear: 160/60-176th April 2014 at 3:17 pm #11393
The fun starts when I bring this bike to TÜV/MOT and the test engineer is getting a heart attack!
I doubt he will let the bike pass the test 🙁6th April 2014 at 3:22 pm #11394
This was the content of the trailer this morning:

That looks like an Aladdin’s Cave of a Haul there Michael.
I’m impressed with that trailer to!
How cool is that! you could camp in that! lol6th April 2014 at 6:32 pm #11395
That is the trailer I am thinking of when I say: We may travel by car and trailer to Belgium 🙂
And yes, we have already used it as our “tent” to sleep in there at the Twin meeting 2012.
Will ask tomorrow or Tuesday if I can lend it for the Belgium trip.
Three bikes with us:
– Maria’s LTD
– “Jekyll or Hyde”
– the Dirtbike aka. “Sausemaschine”

Just a little update:
Got the original ZX9R clip-ons and some aftermarket light holder:2nd May 2014 at 11:21 am #11386KaptainkwakKeymaster
That looks quite a beast. An interesting set of mods done there. Are you going for that kind of style?2nd May 2014 at 2:24 pm #11397
can’t use this modified frame for german TÜV 🙁
Fork swap should be ok, swing arm will be under discussion as “ears” / latches for rear suspension are welded to it. But it is done really professional 🙂
Will look out for a standard frame when it is time for that 🙂
Will keep the seat at normal height and get some recessed footpegs.
With that wheel / tire / brake setup the bike has gained the supersport standard of the mid 1990’s 🙂
Maybe it will be painted one side in black, other side in lime green :-)))

I like that.6th January 2015 at 9:49 pm #11398
As this project doesn’t have any priority in the moment, it is moving forward very slowly.
To get it back on the road a new frame is needed and I have found and bought two B-frames. One is with needed papers and will be checked for correct geometry first (by professional seller, http://www.lenden.de/, a friend of Arnd), the other one is without papers.
As I am waiting for my new sand blasting equipment and I have to swap the engine anyway, I may tear down this engine as well and remove the applied blue color and check the internal parts of it.
But don’t expect any rapid progress with this project !
