my $400 Ebay K75 cafe project
« on: December 08, 2018, 09:18:11 AM »
well I haven't post much pics of the build , only asking questions about my problems so I figured I would give this a try and share

I bought this bike off Ebay for $400 last year and been working on it my self in my spare time. loving it just taking my time and hopefully get it semi right lol

the first day it got delivered to me



that same night I was super happy and ready to get my hands dirty




here is after strip down and trying the new seat


removed the old paint and re paint




new head light, speedo, tires and tank back on to see how its coming





welded the exhaust and wrap it up looks great



removed old blue paint from tank



re painted tank but not super happy with results will take to a Pro to paint again


a quick pic after a wash




thanks

Every rider has their own interpretation. I never would've thought about "murdering out" the shock, or capping off the rear loop stubs. Keep up the build! Cheers

been super busy with work but found sometime to do a few small stuff for the project

Remove the stem from the ZXR triple tree and  machine to fit the new smaller bearings


I press  the steam with new bearing in to the tree last night and all is  good.

also disassemble the calipers for a good clean and mask for grit blast prep for powder coating


got next week off work so I should be able to get a bit more done

It almost looks like he used side panels from a K bike to build it.
