KZ650 | front fender redesign


So I wanted a fender that only mounted on one side of the fork. The original design I came up with seemed good enough, after all there’s not much of a fender. While off loading the bike one day I heard the fender make a “tin can” sound. Needless to say that drove me nuts. So back to the drawing board I went. I made the front of the mount more robust. I knew I also needed to stabilize the rear of the fender. I made a detachable strut that wraps around the fork and mounts to the rear of the fender. I decided to wrap the strut in fiber glass to save weight. The fender  now has the rigidity it needs to keep things quiet.

 

stunt tank | 636 flat top

This is a 05-06 Kawasaki 636 tank I had hanging around the shop. I bought the bike for parts. I used the majority of the parts on a KZ650 build. The 636 tank was not going to be used, so I figured mod it out and sell it.

Stunt bike | brake mod


 My brother stunts a Kawisaki 636. The dual caliper mounting bracket he uses originally accepted a six piston caliper. His master cylinder was not strong enough to grab the rotor as hard as he needed. His thought was simple just put a smaller caliper. So thats what we did! He went with a four piston caliper off the same type of bike, I believe it was a R1.

Oil Tank | Resurrection

I had to do a little rehab on the horseshoe oil tank. It had some old brazing repairs that I didn’t like. The oil tank is ready to go now!

King Sportster Tank | Chop & Mount

I found this bitchin little tank on Craigslist. It sits a little to high. So I decided to chop it! I kept the chrome in mind while making my adjustments, I don’t know if I will use it later for the finish. I also reinforced the mounting points to battle that Harley Davidson shake.
