Very Tastefully Updated 1982 GPZ

A very well updated GPZ.  This bike was my favorite all time motorcycle at the time.  Of course I was 20 so that makes it easy.

I frequent your page and like the custom bikes I see from time to time. My bike started out as a stock 1982 GPz1100 minus the windscreen and clocks and I transformed it to this. It runs around San Antonio Texas from time to time….

78 XS500 Cafe

A reader writes in with a request for info for his XS500 Cafe Build.


I am building a 78 XS500 Cafe but seek guidance from those who have gone before me. Specifically I would like to know what Dean’s Keihin carb jetting setup is on his TX500.
Your post, the one that led me here:
Is there a way to get in touch with Dean other than posting a comment on the blog?

Thanks and kind regards,

P.S. for kicks I included a picture of my nearly completed current project
