I'll consider it once I finish my projects:

2005 GSXR1000
1995 ZX7R Frankenstein bike
1997 SRAD Ram swingarm in Chili Corona livery
1995 Russell Muzzy ZX7R Superbike
Suspension on GF's 15 N1K

It will be awhile ........

I got my 07 GSXR750 running today. It wasn't on the list. It's my track bike. It had a frame that was a "non-repairable" title. I frame swapped it with a replacement frame. I wouldn't have bothered, but I got the bike for $600 with an electrical issue. I sold the parts I didn't use got a $600 profit, so why not. I swapped it a few weeks ago, but struggled getting it running until I found the harness ground was not connected.

The GSXR1000 upper triple will be here tomorrow. It should be a quick upgrade. I figure I will need to trim the fairings, and I want to get some minor paint work on it after it is trimmed.

Here are the ZX7Rs. They are getting close to being finished.

Way back when, one of the local dealers had a zx7r....like yours. The aluminum tank, flatside carb model. It sat there for years. It finally sold for about 50% of retail. I wanted it, but even at 50 off, it was still expensive. The shop was basically a farm supply store that happened to get this exotic bike. I still think its one of the best looking motorcycles, ever. Yours are amazing. You've built several, right, or are these the same bikes?

The color scheme is perfect. I noticed the Bel Ray stickers. One of the mines we go to has a Bel Ray guy...same logo. They must sell mining lubricants, too? Whatever the hell that means.

Kawasaki should big bore the zx6 and get it to the 750 level.

I've had over 50 ZX7's through the last ten years, and 12 of them were Homologation models like you mentioned. I made a decent living during the recession off them. These two are the real deal Muzzy Superbikes. #2 is built from all Scott Russell parts when a friend and I bought up a bunch of Muzzy stuff when he shut down. #4 is accurate Superbike parts, but none of them can be confirmed to be Russell, just Factory Works, Muzzy team custom and Kit. #4 will go up on auction soon and it should go for big bucks (or at least better or it won't meet reserve). #2 has one of seven ever built gear drive Factory Works engines in it.

Bel Ray is motorcycle oil. You can still find it on the shelves at Cycle Gear.

I'd rather see Kawasaki de-stroke the ZX10R engine to 750cc and let her rev to the moon. I do have to say though, it would be hard to do better than Suzuki did on that 06+ GSXR750. Great frame, engine, suspension. Overall a wonderful bike. This one is so modded, I may be over-thinking it though. Ohlins R&T forks plus shock and damper, Attack triples, Brembo GP4-RR front calipers with 19x18 master, Discacciati thumb brake rear with 4 piston billet caliper, Carrozzeria 1000 wheels, Yoshimura exhaust and covers, Vortex rearsets.

The GSXR1000 ABM upper triple finally came in from Germany. The bar fits without any trimming of the fairings. Now to get rid of that ugly white on the upper and change the yellow/grey on the tank to grey/gold to match the rest of the fairings. Also repair the few scrapes in the upper.
