Thinking about entering my old Kz1000. Nothing really crazy but some machine work will be necessary. Just not sure if it'll be worthy compared to some all out builds that will be happening.

Later, Doug

In case you haven't noticed, it's probably worth mentioning the all out builds are rarely finished in time. ;)

I really can't make any promises. I really want it done for next summer, but even when I get the suspension done, there's a crap ton of things I haven't even started on. If I push for "minimal modification & labor functioning", then yeah, I could probably make it, and do the things the way I really wanted later on. And by "things I really wanted" I mean stuff like exhaust beyond some straight headers, proper airbox / filters, headlights, etc. Not niceties like tuning and paint.

Its kinda painful, getting to the point where I'm annoyed that I can't take time to work on other things because otherwise it will drag on to a 5 year project before I even get it running.

Very noob friendly, and fun. Just don't get discourage if yah can't finish, because chances are you'll learn so much you stretch your goals (which is what has happened to me 3 years running). I was Noobly McNooberson from the town of Noobsville my first time around. Also worth noting that you can be both a VIP and a noob, its just a paid premium that helps keep the site funded. A lot of the VIPs are long term members, but (like me) not all.

Well fuck, I guess I'll have to wait another week to start my build... assholes :D
Soooo how do I enter? I found the buildoff threads for the last few years, but not this one. Do I just start my build thread with a newspaper pic and that's it?

Wait until the 2016 Build off subforums are made and then start a new thread in each of them (one for the build and one for discussion). Yes, something dated, such as a newspaper, with the bike and parts you currently have for the build.
