Crevier Muzzy ZX-7R M Superbike Restoration

I picked up this bike a couple months ago needing a restoration. Aftermarket, busted up fairings. Factory M engine laying on the ground, with the bike having a street ZX9R engine in it. Lots of wrong parts on it. Lots needing cleaned, polished, painted, etc. Fortunately, I have lots of the missing parts, including an original set of Crevier fairings and a straight tank I picked up directly from Muzzy. I did have to source some of the parts to finish as well.

Here is how I picked her up:





Everything layed out and inventoried. Parts cleaned, polished, painted, etc.:





Engine ready to go in frame, next, engine in frame with harness, and then trial fit tank and tail with my friend helping:







A couple close-ups of the Factory Works M engine:





I still cannot get the swingarm to polish nice. The radiator and subframe are out getting welded. I need a couple small pieces of hardware that are on the way. Getting close on this one. Hoping to finish in a week or so.

This is such an impressive bike excited to see it go together. I shared your FB post of this on Ryan's Roadracing Lounge page there and everyone loved it.
Steve Crevier being a Canadian Muzzy rider is cool by me too!

If you want to switch the muzzy exhaust for a Micron I know where to find one ;)

Matt, I would pull a Ti Muzzy full exhaust off a Muzzy bike for a Micron why? Hurry up and pick up that damn thing. I just joined Ryan's, waiting for approval. I'll abuse you there soon.

..... and yes, it should have a polished frame, much to my dismay .....

Now if I could only get this damn swingarm to polish. I am ready to throw it against the wall.

I must be trapped in the 90s i don't mind a polished frame one bit. I'm not crazy about black frames tbh.
Depends on the colour of bike i guess for either.

Getting closer. I am hoping to get finished in time for ROTM this month. I pulled the timing cover so I could fog the engine on anticipation of starter her. Here are a few more pics, including one to show this Factory Works engine has a Factory Works crank.

just take your time and do it right, theres no point rushing and not being 100% happy with the finished result. theres always next month for ROTM.

nice bike by the way, hows the screen brace attached? i cant find an aftermarket one for the L/M models. looks like im going to have to get one made

They weld bungs and drill/tap on the front of the frame like the J/K and N/P models have. Dumb design they used on the L/M.

Why is it I am thinking you want to keep the competition down?
