After 35 years...... - DrMarten - 28-02-2019

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....

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
