Thats just stunning Martin. =P~ =P~ =P~
I doubt there's a better looking B2 resto ANYWHERE!

:-k is there a reason you havn't fitted a chain yet? :-s
And as Sharky asked, what paint/coating did you use on those pipes, as they look soooooo factory (or maybe you got some NOS items).

Stunning, looks like it just came out the factory =D> =D> =D>

Obviously no offence to anyone but it is so nice to see one restored to how the big K made them in the first place.

Little touch's like the screen trim & the way the hose's exit via the clamp & the fact you have used what look like original Kr1 pipes.

Is the rear brake hose original or nos or did you have it made?

Definately more pics on this one please

Beautiful 8)

I have seen this bike up close earlier in the build and I doubt there is a resto to better it anywhere.

I have no doubt you're right B_M,

It does look the business 8)

Its a really tricky subject isn't it, do Kr1's & Kr1s's look better original or tricked up?

Not for me to decide cos I love all motorcycles :wink: especially Kwaks :D

All I'm going to say is my Kr1s special is possibly about to become a Kr1s as Kawasaki intended!

Martin, I think I hate you :lol: I had the Kr1s all planned out till I saw your Kr1, grrr :twisted:

Do you know how much more(hmmmm) money you have cost me? :lol:

You're right B_M,

I just think Martin has taken the right decisions on the direction he has took.

The Kr1 just looks fantastic.

Its just messed up my ideas for my Kr1s is all...........

Best idea is to sleep on it & in the morning, I'll be none the wiser :lol:

Brilliant stuff Martin, more pics though please.
