Like many people, there is that one thing I sold in the past that I always kicked myself for. Mine is a '78 KZ1000. I was the second owner, bought the bike in near perfect condition for less than a thousand bucks! Had a huge vetter fairing, huge seat, the usual crap. Toecutter (Parker) donated many of his KZ goodies off his favorite bike to make mine better. Clubmans, jet kit, Kerker 4-1, filter pods, ignition, etc, removed the blinkers, rear fender, grab rail, and anything else I didnt like. Made a killer cafe bike, wasted some "fast" H.D.'s with it. Looked like the bike above, but better! The guy I sold it to moved to Canada right after he bought it, and I figured I would never see it again. That was 6 or 7 years ago.....Fast forward to the other day- dumb luck led to me finding out the current owners have moved back to the area!! THEY STILL HAVE IT!! AND THEY ARE MY NEIGHBORS!!! HOLY SHIT!! So I gave the guy's wife my contact info, now Im sweatin' cause I haven't heard back! IT WILL BE MINE AGAIN, RESISTANCE IS FUTILE! Stay Tuned

This thing hauled ass for an old econoline, but it had to go. Never felt like it was mine? Bad juju, mirrors would fly off at speed (like 3 times) had a random cracked piece of shit wheel that leaked air as soon as i got home, random hardware hung up the float first time I drove it, overheated (of course) finally fixed after trying every trick known to man and old econo freaks,...hope its life in San Diego is going better. The guy that bought it was super nice and had a killer knuck project goin on. Good Luck Irwin!

Been going back and forth with myself about jockey shift or regular hand clutch set up. I already had this mousetrap layin around just in case, so I think Im gonna use it. Pretty cool booster, I hear they work great if set-up properly....
