First bike!

Postby Shredder888 » Wed Feb 12, 2020 3:46 pm

A little back story about myself...

I'm originally from Kansas, now living in Idaho.

30 years old and fairly new to the road bike scene.

I like older bikes (750 turbos, N/A 750s, kz1000s, really any older kawi)
Bought my E1 from my dad that used to be an avid member on here (Ryan Werth) Some of you may remember him.

The bike needs paint and that's about it, a few random button up pieces and then I'll venture to Kansas and trailer it up to Idaho and show the community around here what an old Kawi can really do.

So far, it has had the following done:

Zx11 suspension front and rear
Zx7 oil pump
New decal sets
Charlie upgraded turbo
Pogue something lol (my dad knows more about it, he just told me it had a Pogue something on it and said to keep it on there.)
Slash pipe exhaust my dad fabricated.
Manual cam chain tensioner.
BOV
Has more, just need to ask my dad.

Anyways, I'm new to the group and I'll post all my progress photos. Kept every single one.

Welcome in! I’m like you as all my bikes (all 7) are built in 1983 or earlier. I took a look at the pics and it looks very well executed.

Later, Doug

Welcome aboard mate! Great to hear a younger bloke taking an interest in older bikes! Stick around and you can learn heaps of info here.
The problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude towards the problem.

I've tried to upload pictures and nothing has been uploaded yet. I made sure they were all less than 1000 pixels wide, still nothing. Do they need to be approved before they physically post?

Hi and welcome to the gang. :beer

Pictures that are too large (width or height) will give you an error message. Size has always been a problem, usually bigger than required. :popcorn

A belated welcome Shredder :thumbup

Many of us that have been on this site for "a while" know your Dad through here. Send my regards when you see him.

Can you point me to a post of yours where the photos are not working please? Happy to take a look.
