Very nice of you to recognize those guys. I hope to learn enough to live up to those thanks, eventually. So far, I'm kindof a lurking, learning, madman! Lots of want-to...not much need-to...Yet! I'm sure the winter teardown will change that alot.

Ride safe...God Bless!

Great call out there Bike...I don't have a vintage but am always reading the posts here. If a good deal on a vintage ever comes my way I plan to pick it up because I like the looks of alot of the older rides.

Old bikes never die.....they just sit in the back of the garage waiting for rebuilds.

Old bikers never die....they can't...they haven't rebuilt that bike yet :lol:

Once you get vintage bike fever, you are hooked..already have four vintage bikes in the garage. My car is sitting out in the weather :lol:
And my Beemer is in the back of the garage waiting for a rebuild.

Once you get a taste of Vintage, the styling, the quirks etc., they become treasures and beg to be rebuilt.

I can't wait for the day when my GPz750 is ready for its first ride after rebuild.

Vintage bikes are great eye catchers. Lots of people, even none riders appreciate the look of the older bikes.

Really! Check ebay...seems to have alot of kz1000p's lately. I saw two there last night. I'm starting to get liter fever (kz style...not modern day style) myself. Acouple of guys posted some outrageous streetfighters on KZrider.com in the last couple of days! Hmmmm....

Ride safe...God bless!

Hi guys, I'm new here.
I just bought what is possibly the roughest '83GPz750 out there.

I couldn't resist. They don't come any cheaper, unless they're free.
This old bike is going to need some TLC, and it looks like this may be a good place to ask a few questions as I encounter the enevitable problems with the restoration. As you can see, I will need some parts and several hundred hours of work. Everything needs to be rebuilt, so I guess this is the before picture.
I have owned and ridden bikes since 1983, so this is not my first project, but it is my first Kawasaki. Thanks in advance for any help with my new toy, and I'll try not to be too big of a pain in the a$$.

there are no pains...ss here , we just all like bikes. I have seen worse to restore. Get you a good repair manual preferably a factory one. Mine might cover it ......will have to look.

Also go down to the mechanics corner and put up a post.

Welcome and good luck.
