I have a very custom 2001 ZX-11D. I bought this bike 6 or 7 year ago and really never rode it. You can see by the miles (7700) , I never rode it. I rode the heck out of my ZX-9 though.

Anyway, so 2 years ago I was getting into airbrushing and thought it would make a great project to work on over the winter. What you see took a few hours a day for over 5 month. I figured any monkey could airbrush and gloss over it, so I thought I would try a satin finish over the airbrush, it took quite a lot of experimenting to discover what paints works with others, and more importantly what paints worked with a satin top coat. I ended up using 3 coats of clear (gloss) and sanded each coat, they 2 coats of a satin finish to achieve the final look and have the airbrush protected with a top coat. It's not perfect and up close I am sure you could be nit-pickey about the flaws, but from 3 feet away it truly has to been seen in person, it really is a stunning bike.

Now as far as modifications, there are a few:

Corbin Gunfighter and Lady seat
rear luggage rack
Gen-Mar handle bar risers
tinted shield
Full Muzzy SS System, left side
Muzzy radiator fan
Nolgy plug wires
Smog black off plate
Front calipers are from a current 3-Pot GSXR 1000 (from Claude)
Stainless brake and clutch lines

The bike is located in Modesto, CA (95351) and you are more then welcome to come look at anytime. I would like to see $6000 OBO out of it. I think just the paint is worth that. You will NEVER see another that looks like this...........thanks for looking

No problem shipping, I have used uship.com over the years with a lot of luck, I just shipped a ZX-14 from IL to me here in CA and it was only $400, so don't be afraid of shipping.....it's cheaper then you think...........I have some really nice pic's I just don't know how to post them (help), just shoot me a pm.
