1976 KZ1000

 

    And now we get to my first dragbike.  In the interest of not racing the VFR I purchased this 1976 KZ1000.  The bike was a drag bike when I first purchased it.  The previous owner had raced it for many years, but had hung up his racing leathers and the bike sat in the garage.  I purchased the bike for $2500.00 and have since invested quite a bit more. 

    When I first got the bike I took it to the track and ran 10.50 at 125 MPH.  After racing it several times the motor developed a ticking noise and I took it apart to investigate.  I quickly learned that the motor needed to be completely rebuilt. 

    I completely disassembled the bike and painted the frame and bodywork.  The motor was completely taken apart and I had a MarkII crank welded balanced and trued by falicon.  APE make me a big block to go along with the Weisco 13.5 to 1 1260 Kit.  The transmission was backcut by R+D Motorsports in florida.  The head was done locally.  I had oversized stainless valves put in with new 420 lift cams from star racing.  This bike was eventually sold.

1994 Honda VFR750

    That brings us to my second street bike.  I was looking for a bike that was bigger and faster than the EX.  I wanted something that I could ride 100 miles and want to ride 100 more.  After searching and talking to other motorcycle owners I purchased a A 1994 Honda VFR750.

    My VFR has a Micron CF high right slipon on pipe, Dynojet stage one jet kit, K&N filter, 12 volt power adapter (under seat), two left side Throttlemeister bar ends(not pictured), steel braided brake lines, and the fender is bobbed.  I sold this bike 2/05.

1993 Kawasaki EX500 

first streetbike

 

    This is a picture of my 1993 EX500.  This is my first motorcycle.  I would say that this was an excellent first bike and have recomended it to others.  The bike is extremely light and easy to handle.  The bike goes through corners like a dream.  I have seen quite a few of these made into race bikes.  The bike was in excellent condition and I only sold it in quest of a bigger faster bike.

    This bike remained unmodified while I owned it.
