Wink Project "Thomas Conde" - zx600c

Hello brethren,

Short intro: I'm a starving college student and have built two bikes before, one being a cb450 cafe racer and an 89 cbr600 hurricane cafe fighter. It's been quite a while since I've been bikeless and I recently purchased an 89 zx600 last week for $300! Not currently running, gets fuel, but carbs might need a cleaning since it was sitting for about 8 months. Haven't checked for spark yet. The bike however was running before it was stored.

ON TO THE PICS












How she currently sits. Every clutter in the subframe removed.



So tomorrow I'll be cleaning the carbs and trying to start her once again. The plan is to either go with a bobber seat or make a small tail. My build is heavily inspired by NeverEnough's kawi. I'll be modding the current subframe to make it smaller and weld on the supports closer to the tank. Fuel evap system has been removed already.

I already ordered parts to swap in a zx600e swinger and rear wheel. Just waiting on eGay sellers to accept my offer for the wheel lol. I'm hoping to get this thing running and somewhat complete by next month or so.

Enjoy!

I've heard a lot of zxcs have been popping up lately. This just happened because a friend of a friend was selling it. Couldn't pass it up!

I agree Tx1021, it'll look great as a bobber, but I'm wondering if I want a small tail or not. Like VERY small tail.


Good news, just scored a zxe rear wheel with sprocket and hub for $68 shipped. Swingarm parts will almost be complete, I just need a shock. QUESTION: if I'm swapping the swinger, what kind of gearing do I run? Do I keep the stock ZXC gearing or go with the ZXE gearing?

Yes it is.

Quick update: removed the carbs. They looked pretty clean I did see that the idle jets were clogged, hence why the bike wouldn't start. I'll try starting her up tonight after work and I'll post some pics as well.

Now, which rear shock should I go with: 03+ gsxr1000 or 03+ 636?

So I just got home, threw on the carbs that I cleaned earlier today and tried to start her. I'm getting fuel and spark but it won't start! What is that I'm missing here?

Btw, I'm running the stock air box and fuel evap system nixed.
