After 35 years......
#1
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
When the going gets tough you get tougher

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...
