I rode a Kawasaki ZX10R the other day and it went 83 miles per hour in first gear. Yikes!

amazing custom with an excellent build thread over on ADV Rider
Just got the clearcoat on my long neglected Kawasaki H1. She’s been a faithful bike but I’ve never dressed her out the way she’s deserved. It’s a pretty non-traditional color scheme for the 75 H1. I avoided the blue/teal and went for silver instead. I’ve got all of about 100 dollars in this one including the decals (about $50). Duplicolor lacquer metalspec silver paint (about $10) and a true 2 part clearcoat that comes in a spraycan (about $20 and It’s about as fuel resistant as anything that comes from a gun. Requires a respirator etc.). What you can’t add up is all the stripping and sanding and priming and prepwork that goes into it But if I can do this believe me ANYONE can. The last bike I painted similar to this is still holding up well after 3 years so I’m optimistic that it’ll hold up to general abuse. She’s a rider and not a showbike but I’m pretty happy with it.
