some pics of my bike, details and stuff

i think this is the rite place for this, so here goes: its a 1980 kawasaki kz1000 ltd, o.g. crotch rocket from back in tha day. i got it bone stock except the pipe 4yrs ago with the tank dented up. painted it, and rolled like that for 2 1/2 years and then i got the swingarm, airshifter, back rim came off a honda cbr600f4, gsxr750 rear axle, drag bars, tail lite and some other random stuff from ebay, dennis kirk, and stuff. just got the seat recovered a month ago. tore it apart last june, got it back 2getha by august. i got alotta build up pics and and i made alota stuff for it, but i just realized i cant add attachments so ill try and do it some other way. the only other plans i got for it now are a big motor, swap a new front end maybe, chrome, and maybe a new set of wheels. first bike i owned, first bike im building, and of course, first bike i dropped
ps: icant seem to upload all the pics at once, i have like 6-7 to upload, but its not happenin

i really like your bike!

my dad has an 82 kz1000, which was the first streetbike i ever rode, i love those things!

thats a sweet shot from the rear. nice.

since you put a f4 rear rim, maybe you should update with a new front end off a newer sportbike?? some inverted forks??

Yeah I got here... I start from the oldest and work my way up...

Nice bike man!

Alot of nice work. I would love to see some more pics of this thing!

I love the swingarm and the rear tire. Some inverted forks and a match front rim would be a nice touch as well, with the painted front fender. The anti-chrome fender would look a bit nicer!

Do they make any dress up attachments for the motor? Or maybe get it polished... I think that would add major more bling to the bike and make it look not as dated...

Yeah a all black motor would look sweet too! But like you said... 26 year old alum and you can tell. But I love the bike!

You could just do some rake in the trees!
