Very nice, I was wondering when I looked at the first pic, but the further I got the better it looked!

Nice job, and thanks for letting us see the whole progression of work. Really gives a good idea of how much work you put into it.

Great work, and nice progression in the pics. When I get into a project I always forget to take pics along the way. It makes for a much better story to see all the pics lined up like you have 'em.

Well, shee-it. I'm also working on a KZ cafe! Mine's a KZ400 though, got to have the twin. I'll have to take some pics later on. Any plans for gauges? Mine look kind of dumb, sticking above the cubman bars. I'm currently stuck on fabricating some rearset mounts, and seat pan.

Have a look at this brit's cafe on KZ400.com... it's a long thread, but the last two pages have the finished product.

Nice... Nono, that's not my KZ on the forum, it's some dude in the UK... and yeah, I think it's a bit big for the frame too. I've been on the lookout for an old Suzuki GS450 tank like this: http://www.650motorcycles.com/GilesBelaud8.jpg But no luck so far.
