    Hey all, doesnt have any welding...(yet..gotta fix the holes in the muffler) but thought i would share my latest project with you. i bought this 1980 KZ 750 Twin LTD a weekn and a half ago, rebuilt the carbs, and cleaned out the tank and its running pretty good now. i only have one pic of the before, and i just got done painting it today, so the seat isnt on it yet, but i thought i would share my latest...Here ya go- (sorry for the pic quality...they're off of my cell phone)

    Looks good. It brings back memories. I had a Suzuki GS1000 in 79 & then got a slightly worked GS1100 in 81. I was the top guy around for awhile but then the GSXR's came out & I was at the bottom of the pile.

    ha, yeah, i thought about choppin the bars down a bit...the seem kinda high, but this is a very cheap rebuild...$200 bike, $50 battery, $40 oil/filter, and $70 paint job. trying to fix it up and maybe sell it. It's runnin like a banshee now. like to maybe get 1200 or so out of it...never know

    One thing you could do is to install clubman bars or Tomaselli clip ons with a Rickman fairing or the small bikini fairing from an RZ350.Then mod the rear pegs to raise them.That'll allow you to angle up and raise the exhaust.First thing you know you have a nice unique euro style cafe racer which would go well with the paint job.

    Better yet fab up such bars yourself,its cheap and you get exactly the angle you like.

    I might actually have a set of wheely bars for that frame LOL I've got a bunch of parts left from my old KZ900 with the 1100 "J" motor bored to 1478 that i use to play with drag racing. The motor is now in a new frame that's completel custom, undercut gears, lectron carbs, huge cams etc..etc..

    but anyway, that's the first thing i thought when i saw your pics... Good looking older bike. I'm surprised you were able to get all the carb parts you needed without back order or going aftermarket replacement.

    Was it blue or red first though? I'm thinking the red was OEM???
