Speaking of guns, I still have that gun of yours here. I was going to drop it off to you at the birthday bash, but I guess you aren't doing that anymore.
I've gotten away from guns (not that I don't still like to shoot. I do.) and I'm having a blast designing/building a streetfighter out of a 1974 Z1
I'm taking this mock up
and making something like this with a few weapon mounts. lol
I bet you have some pretty sick stuff yourself.
As far as my mounts, I've been trying to figure what weapons will fit and how it rides with that weapon mounted.
I have been testing ideas on this bike. So far I figured out how to mount a Titan 45acp to the dash, a Lan-Cay M9 under the seat, and a M590A1 down by the swingarm.
I'd really like to do a weapon mount with a solenoid to activate a trigger and a back up camera from a car mounted inline with the weapons sights/optic.
Then I could mount the monitor to my dash and a fire control switch to my handlebars. I just don't know how I'd explain that mod to the local PD. LOL
naw , i just ride a 11 yr old HD with a crescent wrench and a allen set in the bag and yes , a bottle of oil.........
A 11 year old HD? My newest bike is 3 times older than yours.
My dad's buddy who used to race Harley's with his brown Z1 on Saturday night in the late 70's, past away last year.
He still had some Z1's (including his old brown Z1) that had been rotting away outside for the last 20+ years.
Well, I ended up with them and I'm just about finished with the first one.
Just waiting for the Larry of Cavanaugh Racing to ship back the head and then It's all going back together. (fingers crossed)
1000cc pistons from a fuel injected Kaw, Andrews 2X cams, 28mm Mic's with the 17mm drain bolt on the float bowls, 1000cc valves w/ 3 angle valve job, new valve guides, Street ported head, so on and so on. Basically it's a "sleeper". http://www.kzrider.com/forum/11-proj...a-preservation
Oh, by the way. I'm giving this bike to my mother.

Kenny, that bike is coming along nicely. I definitely love the red one you showed as an example. Bada$$!!!! I miss my old Eliminator 1000!!!!
Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!
"If they’re going to come here illegally, apply for & receive assistance through a corrupted Government agency encouraging this lawless behavior, work under the table & send billions of dollars each year back to their families in Mexico, while bleeding local economies dry, protest in our streets waving their Mexican flags DEMANDING rights, while I have to press ’1′ for English, then they need to be shipped back to where they came from!" -Chad Miller
I'm plugging away on them. I can't wait for the brown Z1 to be finished, so I can start on my streetfighter.
I remember you telling me that you had a 87 Z1000. I sat on one of those on the show room floor back in 87.
My buddy had one in his shop for repair last month. I had to sit on it also. lol
Kinda gave up on building guns and decided to mess with bikes. I have enough old Kawasaki bikes to keep me busy for years. lol
This is what I have stashed.
1974 400 Triple
1974 Z1A Streetfighter
1974 Z1A Preservation
1976 KZ900 Parts Bike
P.S. Have you heard anything from Scott? Is he still building?
I still can't get over how much he looks like Jeff Bridges.
I have a few.
