1980 Kawasaki KZ 38mm Project

Pictured below is 1980 kawasaki triple tree project we were involved with several years ago.The builder wanted to maintain the stock 38 mm fork tubes .We built a clean set of trees with a small rake built in to give the bike a little longer wheel base and lower the front about an inch.The stock Harley-Davidson naorrow glide top mount headlight was to be used . We installed our top mount bracket on the bottom of the top tree.The finish was our standard polish.The custom front end and a complete bike restoration created a slick custom Kawasaki motorcycle. This polished triple tree with the light bracket can be built for around $650.00.
