Spent a couple of hours today grinding down some of the welds on the frame just to tidy things up a little. The front fairing mount looked like it had been broken at some stage and the repair job on it wasn't the best.
I will get that rewelded the same time as I get the other repair done, then it will be a trip to the sandblasters.

While browsing the net for ideas and parts I stumbled across this site from Japan. J-Parts. They sell some stuff for the GPZ900. I really like the look of these side covers, should look good and they will suit the style I'm looking at.

Welcome to my Kawasaki Gpz900R restoration site. Many years ago I purchased a Gpz900, although she ran great and looked a little rough around the edges the price was good. I rode it around for a few years, then one day the starter clutch decided to give up the ghost as this seems to be a common problem with these beasts. The bike was pulled down so I could repair it but as happens other priorities kept popping up. The bike ended up on the back burner for a few more years. Recently I decided that I had to do something about it and planned on doing a ground up restoration job. The plan is to restore the bike but also add a few custom touches to make it different from all the others.
