1981 kZ1000J – Zelda | Brag Your Bike


Sam's custom bike 1981 kZ1000J – Zelda parked in front of a field of sunflowers

Bought the bike in 1983, unfortunately it was involved in a accident, that’s when I started building. It’s been different styles over the years.

In March 1987 you featured the bike in BSH, since then again it’s had a few changes. I believe you call it Evolution.

The engine is stock for reliability just been rebuilt, the frame is the original hard tail just reworked when I change the look, the running gear are Harley 16” Fat Spoked wheels with DNA Inverted  forks, brembo rear brake, 4 pot Harrison billet front brake, billet brake and clutch master cylinder, upgraded hydraulic clutch, billet forward controls, one of stainless 2 into 1 down pipes with Vance and Hines slip on mufflers everything else was hand made.

Had the bike for approximately 40 years, altered the appearance over the years and it still brings a smile to my face when I drive it.
