1999 Kawasaki ZX-7R
Owner: Karl Cartwright, Workshop, Notts Owned for: two years So far: turned a frame into a complete bike What’s next? building a trick ’98 TL1000R
It started as a bare frame I bought off ebay back in October 2016. It’s taken just over a year to complete and four months of that was taken sourcing original bodywork panels. I’ve done everything myself, including the paint. The hardest part was making the front caliper brackets so I could fit 2005 R1 ‘gold-spot’ calipers. I’ve also uprated the airbox by using blanking plates (designed by me) for the reed valves. I’ve done several builds in the past, including a ’93 GSX-R750WP and 1990 ZXR750H2, but I think this is my best yet.
Not sure about the gold frame, but the paint rocks
