    Always wanted a Zx7r

    Always wanted one as a kid first bike I ever went on so got one in lockdown and it started


    Completely stripped down


    Fresh powder coat in hyper silver
    Every nut bolt clip bracket zinc plated gold








    Built back up with all new bearings

    New pilot powers fitted





    Rolling and engine in but not happy with the engine so it’s coming back out




    Tank dipped and platinum plated so paint should be perfect. primed and under coated
    So that’s about as far as putting back together as av got. Have loads of new parts from America plus a muzzy carbon fibre Airbox and rams
    Brembo front brakes have one for rear too but not sure how am going to fit it. The the normal braided lines silicone hoses will be trying to get engine back out soon and crack back on with it

    Looks a good job there mate.. did you rewrap the loom or is that a replacement, what's up with the motor that your pulling it back out ?.. bench work is a breeze when it's not mounted..
