Default 81 KZ650 Cafe Racer Project.

I have a new project that I am planning on spending a decent amount of cash on and I will be keeping and riding this one so if any of you have any feedback, constructive criticism or idea's I would like to hear it.

Thanks in advance...............

I bought this 1981 KZ650 CSR for $600 - I am going for a pretty much traditional looking Cafe Racer. I will strip her down to the frame and will powder coat the frame white and paint the bike black with a single white racing stripe up the cafe seat, tank and front fender. I will also have a bit of chrome on the bike.

Here are some pic's

STOCK AS PURCHASED.



STARTED TO STRIP HER DOWN.



I have ordered a bunch of parts and will update the build as I make progress.

Clubmans are always sweet. I have used them on other bikes in the past. You ca get a fair amount of adjustment in the angles you want. As far as rear sets go I ordered some chrome foot pegs that will fit into the stock set up. So any custom rear sets would be part of stage 2 of the build if it happens.

Just ask because Otto is my Last. This should look good when it's done, love the cafe look and am excited to see where it goes. If you are rocking clubmans, where did you get them from?
