    Picked this up from another member here and have begun the slow process of assembly and parts sourcing. Power plant is a '13 Z1000 motor with a RPM gearbox I purchased from here as well... Finished up the rear cage drops for the engine cage, mounted up the motor, headers and air-box/Fuel tank only to realize there was interference. Cut the tank mounts, moved them about 1 1/4" inches and re-welded for a better fit. Next up is going to be figuring out how to get the RPM box centered and mounted in the cage since ProtoDie isn't selling parts right now... I will also begin the process of laying out my suspension and figuring our where I want to go with it. Wheels and tires will probably be 15" 5 lug with 28-30" tall tires...

    Nice!
    Good to see you were able to resurrect someone else’s project and make it your own.
    Dont know how you’d do it but when you get it finished figure out how to get that thing on Crandon’s race track. My god that thing would be fun there!

    Thanks for the kind words... For some reason the quote function wont work for me but here we go...K-fab- you Rock!! Thanks for the hook up on the pedals and shifter. ....New updates are coming soon, I received my Elka Stage 5 2.5" shocks, wheels and tires will be here soon as well as all my laser parts for front spindles and disc brakes. YES PIC's will be posted :-)...........Fatboy1214- I kinda figured when you were going to forward to for sale post to someone in Appleton that at one point you were a Miller employee or intern :-). I am going on 5 years with Miller and just relocated from the Western side of the 50 states to De Pere...

    Nice looking tire and wheel set up! Is that a 5x4.5 bolt pattern?

    Wheels are a 5x4.75. I could have used either lug pattern, but for some reason if I went with the 5x4.5 pattern, the brake set was another $150. Since my rear hubs are able to run 3 different patterns, I follower the least expensive route.
