looking for some help guys on my next project

after storing my z650 b1 in a camp metal shed it came out looking a little worse for wear..............my nice polished alloy all furred up and it looks in need of a freshen up

..that is a very nice looking 650...but it will have cost quite a lot to get like that....Ally for my twopenneth...change that back end (mudguard and tail light)...might be an idea to line the tin storage box with some insulation blocks or something to keep the damp down, and leave the engine out of the frame for storage. Make it easier for cleaning up next time.:smile

Must admit I was wondering what a 'camp metal shed' was :lol:

Good luck with the project, although personally I think you should restore it to as near original as possible :smile

i think you just found what i want to build.............it keeps the look of a z with the bling of a modern bike..............i prefer polished alloy and spoked wheels as supposed to paint and alloys but yeah, if she turns out half as good as that me n mikey would be happy.........................good find mate and thanks again for looking:wink:

there are...

one or two on here with twin discs on spoked wheels Ally.Also that show bike is not as altered as what I initially thought (cast wheels as standard ). just a lot of hard work gone into bringing it up to concourse and a few tasteful add ons.

z650's

I'm liking the ZREX swinging arm on this one. And spoked wheels look fine too.

yes i hang my head in shame...................you should have seen the ol z a year ago.............well you can if you check her out on my profile pics..............the trouble is that i have to squeeze a pan, gixer and z into the garage and still allow enough room for the other projects that happen...............still she is back were she belongs and the engine is now out.............and most of the crud came off with a long hair wire brush...............a few months mate and she will be back to her former glory:winkie:

yeah the original look is good and it keeps the money...............but were's the fun in that and i want it cool enough that my boy will want to keep it (or trade it in for the future renault clio with alloys lol)................tbh there is not enough money in it to warrant keeping it standard, the original bits will be kept and there will be no irreversible mods done.................i just want something that wee bit diffrent:biggrin:
