Here is a 1976 KZ400 Cafe Racer that I have built over the last couple years. The motor was completely disassembled and cleaned  then reassembled with new gaskets, seals and piston rings. The bike has Mikuni carbs from a 2006 Banshee, they have been tuned and jetted and work very well. The bike starts easy, idles good and runs great. It has Uni foam filters and a Supertrapp tunable muffler mated up to the stock 2 into 1 head pipes. Ignition includes new Dyna coil and plug wires with new plugs and points. As you can see the frame has been modified and braced which gives it a much more rigid feel than stock. The frame was also modified to mount rearsets in the correct position. The swingarm has been braced and the shock mounts modified to allow a bit larger shock to be used. The shocks are from a Kaw ZR550 and have been rebuilt with new seal heads, fluid, etc. The stock forks have been rebuilt as well. The wheels were completely disassembled and cleaned. The hubs are polished on the sides and powder coated in the center. The wheels were then reassembled laced and trued and then new tubes and new Duro HF918 tires were mounted front and rear. The bike is custom wired and all lights, horn, indicators work as they should. The key switch and left hand/light switch are from a Kaw S2. There is a small battery under the seat cowling. This bike is kick start only from the factory as it is a KZ400 S model. The kick starter is from a KZ650 which allows it to clear the rearsets. There is a lot of powder coating work on this bike including the frame, swingarm, fork lowers, clip ons, rearsets, shock springs, headlight and brackets. The clip on bars are custom made and the controls are all in great shape. The throttle and cables are new. The hardware is all in good shape, nothing rounded off or mismatched. Much of what I modified got stainless hardware. Look at the pictures and you will see all over the bike hand machined aluminum spacers. There is a custom license plate mount with the bike that is shown in a couple of the pictures.   The seat is custom made from a leather bomber jacket by a local upholstery shop.
