1980 KZ1000 LTD
« on: March 16, 2011, 12:32:00 pm »
New guy here. Here's a pic of my KZ. Bought it about two years ago. Wanted one since the late 70's, finally broke down and scratched that itch. Only mods so far are the de-chroming, paint and some electrical work. Hope to stretch the swingarm and get into the engine when I find time and money. Runs good at the moment though...;-)

My other bike is an '02 KLR650.

Thanks, they were chrome and, since I'm the anti-chrome, I blasted them and hit 'em with high temp black. Been holding up good so far.
