The main stand on my GPz has finally succumbed to the dreaded rust.

A small reinforced web has gone crispy, and when putting her on the stand at weekend I heard that sickening tearing....
Luckily I stopped and the stand is still intact... 

Time to borrow a mig and make up some reinforcements....

Still not bad going....
Could have been nasty that Doc, lucky you were prepared
Damm that evil rust worm !!!
That’s good going 35 years - modern bikes rust within 10 years!
More of a testament to the love & care you give I imagine Doc
Whipped the stand off today whilst sticking the refurbished suspension link in.... Anyone remember big fuss Kawasaki made of Unitrak back in the 80’s??

Well, 4 new bearings and seals.... it’s amazing! The old girl feels firm and frisky again...

Good, it's completely unknown, it is a Kawasaki we're talking about Big Grin
