Thanks! You may have seen the 2 pics that I posted in the Gallery right after the bike was finished. A couple changes since then-  seat, shocks  and centerstand added.

I can't believe it's March already  . Staying in the USA this month for Kelly's stunning "Ltd", family owned from new and an object of Kelly's desire for many years. Check out the build thread for countless little details and improvements that Kelly has made during the rebuild.
Here's my 77' KZ 1000 Ltd - It's a legacy bike, my uncle bought it in 78'. It had 33k miles when I got the bike it sort of ran but puked gas from every carb. 
We pulled it apart to blast and paint the frame along with the rest of the black parts.
Next was a complete clean up of every electrical connection. A rebuild of all the brake hydraulics, new pads all around and resurfacing the rear rotor.
We added tapered roller bearings to the steering head, cleaned and rebuilt the forks. We filled them up with ATF type F because I only weigh 125lbs.
The swingarm bearings just needed cleaning and we got a set of Progressive series 12 shocks with 70/120 springs. The motor is sound, the only thing we changed was the clutch frictions and springs.
We added a set of Mikuni RS34 carbs and a Delkevik exhaust. The bodywork is original but the seat and handlebars are new. 
I've wanted this bike since my uncle bought it and now it's mine until I can't ride it. Then it becomes my son's bike. I also have an 84' Honda VF 700S V4 Sabre that was also my uncle's bike which will also be passed down.
