Hallo,
my name is Tino from Germany and my english is horrible<img src=icon_smile_blush.gif border=0 align=middle>
My hobby are the old Z-Kawasakis and the special frames round the Z-engine. Specially for this famous site i will present my Rickman CR9.
I buy 5 years ago the frame and built up my own caferacer...
I need more than 3 years to look for the hold parts that i need for my project. Now im ready and happy to start on few hillraces with this bike next year.
My other baby is a 1978 Egli EVK9. I buy it also in parts and finished this project 2 years ago.
But my favorite bike is the Rickman!

Gutentag( sorry, about all the German I know) Tino,
Nice bikes! I really like the Egli. I think it is just enough different from standard frame design that I like it better. The Rickman is very nicely done. A couple of classics from the 70s.

Welcome to the board and tell your friends we are going international. What countries do we have with us now, US, Canada, Alaska, Australia, Great Britain, France and now Germany.

Beautiful bikes Dude!

The first Cafe/race style bike that REALLY caught my eye as a kid was a late 70's Rickman Honda with a CB750 engine.

KZs as you already know are nearly bullet proof and not bad looking engines either.

Hallo Rosko,
your german is better than my english:)
Actually i dont have a project but i dream from a Bimota KB1.
In this winter i will change the frontfork on my KZ1000. She is too short so i become more and more scratches in my mufflers.:)
Also i will change the colour in the "Gulf"colour but i dont have the colour code from the blue and orange, did anyone know it??
In Germany we also have a big site for the old Kawasaki Z1, the link: http://www.kawasaki-z.de
one pic from my KZ 1000
Its nice here, very much projects!!

I'm doing my '79 750 in gulf colors. i've got the codes for the AUTHENTIC ford blue and what works out to be a dodge orange, however, i can tell you that both are WAY too subdued scaled down to a bike...washed out and flat. i'll be going deeper in both.

and i'd be more than happy to share them...AFTER mine's painted so i can say i did it first!!!

Catboy's a whiney little bitch! Those codes'll cost you a six pack. At the rate he's getting his bike put together, we'll all be old men, in the home, trying to remember our names, let alone what the fuck is "Gulf" & where are my clubs - oh, and where is that cute little nurse's aide - I need my diaper changed.
