My entry started life as a Kawasaki KLR 650 Tengai. First job, after stripping down the bike, was to have the wheels rebuilt with 18" rims. These, along with the lowered forks, allowed me to set the stance of the bike. Rear Hagon shock was stripped and painted before being rebuilt and fitted. Sub-frame was then cut down and reset before being fitted with new seat. This in turn was matched with a tank from a Honda FT500, fitted to the frame on new mounts.
The exhaust system was made up using a collection of stainless steel tube bends, cut and welded to suit. And the intake had a modified K&N filter fitted. Engine and carb have since been re-jetted and tuned to match.
Connected to the under seat lithium battery is the rewired loom. New electrics include a digital speedo /rev counter, led indicators, warning lights and tail light. Pick up for the speedometer is taken from the rear wheel and wired through the swinging arm.
Finally all the painting including frame, tank and seat, was done by myself, in my shed, using nothing more than rattle cans. And I am really pleased to report that 'Kwakatrack' is a really fun bike to ride!
