If you can't rant to your Brick Brothers then who can you rant to?? I read the whole piece! Sometimes it helps to just get it off your chest! You'll get there. Give us photos of the Kawi!! I had a '73 350 first real ride.

It doesn't look like much now, but it's 90% complete. The only major pieces I'm missing are the expansion chambers (which, it looks like, are going to run me $1k minimum) and a rear fender. I have all the bodywork, front fender, oil tank, plumbing, intake, and other associated doodads in a couple boxes.

Now that is what I consider a real starting point for a cappuccino racer.  Proper wire wheels and tank lines that will blend properly with an ironing board seat.

It doesn't look like much now . . .
I think the earth-tone treatment of the metalwork looks pretty good.
