May both Smokey and the Taxman miss you!

Have fun with it. Looks like I'm going to be in the market for a Bonnie by the end of the summer, I'm thinking. I still need to get my permit and take the MSF course and such -- but in 20 days, I'll have been without a cigarette for a year.

It's been so long by Phage (2.00 / 0) #3 Thu May 08, 2008 at 10:45:11 PM EST
I can't remember what you have now. Some ancient Kwak wasn't it ? an LTD or z500 ?

1975 Kz400 by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #5 Fri May 09, 2008 at 04:18:48 AM EST
I prefer the word venerable, though.

That's the one by Phage (2.00 / 0) #7 Fri May 09, 2008 at 05:29:32 AM EST
A friend of mine had the z500. Nice bike. Superb brakes for the era as I recall. Camchain tended to be a bit fragile, but then that just may have been him.

It's a pretty basic parallel twin by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #8 Fri May 09, 2008 at 05:36:58 AM EST
I doubt it would hit 100, but it will get me around until I can get my Honda 76 CB550 running.

The single cam one ? by Phage (2.00 / 0) #9 Fri May 09, 2008 at 05:57:04 AM EST
Nice, but a little small physically for me, as I'm a BF Git.
Heh - Confusion what you call the Kz400 I used to call the LTD. The z500 was this one.

Yep, single cam with balancers by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #10 Fri May 09, 2008 at 06:06:50 AM EST
It would look like this one if it were stock, but it has a repainted and chipped gas tank, a windshield, a remade seat, different mirrors, mismatched side covers and a big trunk, a real rat bike.

No duct tape ? by Phage (2.00 / 0) #11 Fri May 09, 2008 at 06:28:17 AM EST
I'm disappointed.

I did have electricians tape holding the headlight by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #12 Fri May 09, 2008 at 06:37:28 AM EST
bucket in, until I scored a better one at a boot (garage) sale for $3.

There's a certain pleasure to getting bargains by Phage (2.00 / 0) #13 Fri May 09, 2008 at 06:40:42 AM EST
I have find memories of dipping the beam on my z650 by reaching over and pushing the lamp down. Classy taping though.
