My 93L Model

I've had another project on the backburner for awhile and recently I've been working on it while I'm waiting on parts for my other builds. It's a 1993 ZX7 L model. Nothing special about it. It was a basket case when I got it but I've slowly been resurrecting it from the dead. The bodywork is in paint jail and I don't know when I'll get it back but I want the bike completely done and ready for it when I get it. Anyway, here's some pics.

I just got my stuff back from getting powder coated.









The powder coater did a great job on everything and I couldn't be happier with it.

The next step here is to tap all the holes and clean the bearing surfaces on the rims and kick stand to get them ready to mount.

I've also sandblasted, painted and rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder this week.

It's going to be the original brandy wine color Kawasaki put on them back in the day.

That's what I like about you, Turbo. Instead of looking to external factors you consistently look to yourself to provide the improvements first.

In a day and age where everyone's playing the blame game and looking for excuses it's refreshing to see a little discipline, determination, and self-efficacy.

Got my new tires. I've had the bearings and seals for a little while and this weekend it may be on it's own wheels and tires for the first time since I bought it.

I didn't have much time today due to the step-daughter's sports schedule and other things I had to do for the family but I had a little time to work on the prepping the rims for installation. When anything gets powder coated the complete item gets coated and the threads need to be cleaned up on any tapped holes prior to assembly. So I tapped all the holes for the brake rotor mounting bolts. It's not much but it's forward progress.

I had to do that with a set this week (chase the threads on PC march 5 spoke to install AP rotors), but also.... The thick paint left on the mating surface between disk carrier and wheel hub often is too thick and has to be scrubbed off or carrier won't fit over inner ring or disk offset is artificially altered by paint difference.
I say this not for you but to add for others..

Thanks Joe. I've had this camera for about a year but I usually only use it for vacations and my daughter's sports and school stuff. It's a Canon T5i. Most of the pics I post here are from my Iphone.

Awesome to see another ZX7 saved from becoming just another parts bike. Can't wait to see the finished product, I'm sure it will be fantastic

I started installing the bearings in the rims and cush drive tonight. I stopped progress on the rims because I found corrosion on the internal spacer tubes for both rims, so I'm going to address that and then continue assembly. Possibly tomorrow night I'll have one or both done. I did get the cush drive done and ready for the sprocket and installation on the rim and bike. I also test fitted the brake rotors. All 3 fit nicely but I want to spiffy up the bolts before I install them.

I'm still planning to have this bike on these rims by the weekend.

Here's some pictures of some of the other stuff I've been messing with. I tore down, painted and rebuilt the rear brake caliper and hanger and powder coated the kick stand and some of the fairing brackets. I also fabricated an M model ZX7R style muffler bracket.
