1976 Kawasaki KZ400 Street Tracker Build

And this bike is done. Sure there are a few more little details that should be taken care of, but you have to leave something for the new owner to personalize, right? Here’s where we started. This 1976 Kawasaki KZ400 had sat behind someones house in Burbank, CA baking in the sun since at least […]

…And It Begins

Thanks to PJ Riley (drag racer, Suzuki expert, all around great guy) and Venture County Motorsports I am now the owner of a low mileage, dusty and crusty, 1980 CM400T.

Nearly a year and a 1/2 ago I posted this inventory of my garage/projects, Well I’m finally starting to see the end of the tunnel on 2 of them. The Honda MT125 Elsinore is within spitting distance of being “done” and the CB750 cafe racer is nearly a whole bike again. Back in August it […]
