    New guy from Australia

    Hi all. My name is Jim, have been a motorcycle tragic most of my life. Many years ago, I built up a sweet little Ducati 250 cafe racer, and of course owned quite a few others. Having just recently sold a Kawasaki Vulcan VN 900, I survived without a bike for a whole week before E-baying a running but sad looking Kawa 250 single, circa 1984. I am slowly turning this mini cruiser into what I hope will be a nice looking and fun Sunday morning ride. I am now a Kawasaki nut through and through, and the one rule I have made with this build is that ALL the parts used will be genuine Kawa, except if I fabricate them myself. I'm dont care if any parts are from different models, but it's gotta be a Kawa bit or it wont make it! I have purchased a broken 250 ZZR as well, and have already started using and adapting parts off that.
    Enough from me for now, hoping I can make a few friends in here and get some tips, or perhaps help one of you guys or girls one day.
    Cheers Jim.
    I dont want a pickle.
