No sir.. I mentioned a bagger to corporate this weekend... her response was, "It doesn't have a bed" #-o #-o #-o #-o #-o :-# :-# :-# :-# I think she is right... :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k I doubt we would use a bagger to travel when we have the BBOE... \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ so I think it is a expensive unrealistic idea... I should try and bury it deep.... and forget about it.. =D> =D> =D> =D> =D>

Just finished this build after 2 years, first time it's been on the road in 10 years.. Big change from what i was, its a 1978 kz750 twin, not a common bike...Fun to ride, loud and raw. Pretty happy with how it came out, the original bike was an absolute mess, so its been a pretty full on project to get it to this stage.

Nice! I love the grips too. Looks like individual leather doughnuts stacked end to end.

When I was up there, there was a KZ750 in that yard right across from the gas station on 7th ave. Still there?

That's exactly what the grips are, like an old knife or hatchet handle. Very Kool!

Thanks guys, I'm really happy with how it came out. Next on the list is a 70's Moto Guzzi I think.

The Grips are Brooks cycling grips, and yep they are punched out leather rings stacked together, had to open out every ring and the aluminium end clamps for the throttle tube.

Its really fun to ride, extremely loud, good fun amongst traffic in town and in the twisties, no so much fun on long straights.

Trying to dial in the Mikuni carbs, have a strange surging problem at idle, cant find any vacum leaks, thought normally surging was a lean condition, but the plugs are reading rich, might go down on the pilot jets and see. Still waiting for rings to settle in, so will give it more time first.
