Back to life!

This baby had been sitting way, way too long in the garage and I had even thought about selling her but, my oldest son would not have it.

Big thanks to Patrick over at Motorcycles Unlimited for helping get the tanks and the carbs rebuilt and tuned. As soon as I got her back she started oil. There was a worn out bushing and oil seal. Finally after getting that all squared away, she is now registered, inspected and running like a champ.

I am so stoked that I rode her to work today. Man it feels good to bring this first year bike back to life. I maybe a little bias but, this is the best color scheme they had on the ZX-7. There were only 3K made in 89 and I seriously doubt there are too many on the road today.

Back to life!

Back to life!
