revtune,

you are in midland texas so it is kind of a drive, but in new orleans there is a cycle salvage yard that has a cx500 trubo that took a huge front end hit. Most of it seems to be there still but it has been a couple of months since I have seen it. I know he has racks of those cool as hell gold turbo wheels which I think would be killer on any bike (I plan on using a set on my cb900f).

What kind of bars did you pick (please don't say clubmans). here is my suggestion, shit can clubmans for now and go with a drag bar or a superbike bar (purple haze racing makes a stainless steel 2" rise pro stock bar that looks killer too). Until you get rearsets clubmans will be a pain to ride and drag bars can still have that low sleek overall effect (and it is easier to mount the controls to).

if you don't think a cafe bike will work with drag bars see the honda boys post where my cb750F runs drag bars because they were way more comfortable than clipons (which will go back on once the raask rearsets get here).

I don't know about the handlebar, but Purple Haze Racing is great to deal with. Ron is a real enthusiast and a great guy. He specializes in Kawasaki triples. I delt with him quite a bit when I had my H-2 and the customer service was always first rate.<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
Ron passed away a couple of years ago, Laurie runs it now andf she's a sweetheart.


I just got a set of PHR stainless prostock bars and they are awsome.
