Decided I'm going to build a large dining room and the current farmhouse/live edge/primitive trends have driven lumber prices through the roof. Used to be that sawmill lumber was dirt cheap due to not being processed, now it's easily 5-10x the cost. Gotta love fads!

Anyway, I decided it was time to set up a chainsaw mill and start using some of these trees on the property. I'm using a decent sized ash that fell in a storm last winter. It's already fairly dry, but it fell in the canopy, so it hasn't been rotting on the floor. Largest area of trunk was only about 16-18" and not very straight. Crummy cell phone pics, but not a bad stack of wood for a gallon of fuel burnt!

The milling attachment is a $64 Strongway variant from Northern, and the skid is $16 worth of lumber. Saw is just a MS250 with an 18" bar. Very humble setup, no monster saw. The whole deal works much better than it should. I wish I hadn't waited so long to this.

Me too! My buddy and I were a bit skeptical. But after the first cut I was like, "Time to mix up a fresh batch of fuel".

His wife didn't appreciate me firing up the saw at 7 the next morning, but hey, DST is a bitch.

While looking at my Instagram feeds and seeing a lot of old Z1 & Kz’s being raced in Japan, the thought occurred to me that I have a ‘76 Kz900 frame without a title, a spare Kz900 engine (from another bike) and a few more spare parts scattered about the garage. Brace the frame, move the upper shock mounts, newer-ish forks and swingarm, maybe use the PM Chicane wheels I recently purchased. Some eBay pricing and I believe I can build a track day Kz for around $1k.

I did a couple of track days on my ‘89 Gsxr750 ‘fighter quite a few years ago and wouldn’t mind giving it another try when the time comes.

Something like these:



I still need to build and sell the Cx500 cafe/brat I have and most likely sell my ‘77 Kz1000 daily to pay off some debt and clear the garage. But I really want to build a bare-bones Kz that I can whoop on and not feel too bad of I were to lay it down.

Later, Doug

‘74 Kawasaki H1-500
‘76 Kawasaki Kz900 Stripfighter
‘77 Kawasaki Kz1000
‘78 Kawasaki Kz1000
‘83 Kawasaki Gpz750 (Turbo Converted)

Looked at a lot today. 4500sqm... Evelated with pine trees, not far from river. Close to city. Perfect. Gonna call the seller tomorrow and try to get a look with him next week. But missus said she likes it whenever the borders are. I liked it too, seemed like a good place to try to build a home for us four and my fleet of bikes
