I'm starting a thread to keep everyone posted on the progress of this restoration. I bought this ZX7 back in 1992 with about 4000 miles on it. I'm the second owner. I rode it as my only transportation all through college and then some. It has about 45k on it now. Through a few moves and big changes in life, it has sat for at least 15-18 years. I think the only right thing to do is tear it all down, replace as much I can with new parts as necessary. I have included a photo taken just before I tore it down. the previous owner polished the frame. I am raking the frame, subframe engine cradle and swing arm to the powder-coater tomorrow to try to get i back to a stock finish. I am assuming a satin silver or satin aluminum will be a good match. I am open to advice here if anyone cares to chime in.
