    I'm almost offended you even assumed I would ride without one :P

    I had taken the front fender off when I had put the clipons on. I left it off for now because I need new tires. Don't worry, it will be back on as soon as I the new tires come in.

    more progress.
    I got the bike back in riding status, been doing some test rides making sure everything is working right. All thats left now is to get the bike inspected and registered.

    I also ordered this half fairing:



    It should flow well with the lines of the bike and protect me from some of these monster insects I've been seeing flying around here in texas...

    I also spray bombed an offset racing stripe to hide where the existing paint peeled off, it will stay like that until I get my other set of body work painted. (thinking of going with a paint job inspired by the OEM blue one)

    Welcome back - I'm working on a 1977 KZ900 at the moment myself. I just got the frame back from the powder coater and will be starting the assemble process soon. I'm adding a 16" rear wheel to mine and superbike bars. I'll keep the engine stock for the moment. Yours is looking good.

    some more forward progress!
    Got the fairing mounted up, just doing some final adjustments before paint. I have a new set of side covers and tail, as well as an un-dented tank that I'm going to bring in for a pro paint job as well. I'm just trying to decide what colors (I was thinking a dark green tank with silver tail, sides, and fairing).

    once again, crappy cell phone pics. just need to adjust the screen a bit, and the blinkers need some shims so they'll be straight.

    you need to raise the rear of that fairing up just a touch.
