    Always a gamble. Sorry to hear that Carlo but you can make the best of it.

    Nothing you can do now but come up with a plan!

    Sorry to hear about those issues, but as Arash correctly said: old bikes are always a gamble, or as Forrest Gump's dear mother would put it "like a box of chocolates".
    You will sort it out. This reminds me of my own story with the replacement engine I bought for the Gipsy which also has a non-matching number.
    It is a setback and annoying but like me you will overcome that and continue enjoying the journey with new plans.

    Don't let this bring you down mate. In the end it will be a stunner, of that I am sure.
    Godspeed Jaco. You're missed down here mate.

    Re: Z1R Project

    Well just a small update. So after a lot of thinking and researching about my bike I have come to the conclusion that it would be astronomical to rebuild it back to factory spec. So that being said I decided to build one that I will like and with bits that I like. So I have been collecting bits and here are some pics
    I am using the 16in 1994 Fireblade front end and rear wheel with a box section swingarm with ZRX eccentrics and Hagon Nitro shocks at the rear also got a very nice V&H exhaust for a bargain. The engine is a bit of a heap so working on a plan for that but that's it for now

    Resto mod? Sounds great to me! As long as you're having fun building it and excited to ride it, that's all that matters.

    Wow. I am anxious to witness how this is going to evolve. Sounds like something really special is going to come out of this.

    Re: Z1R Project

    Looks great!! Makes me miss my old kzs. Any plan on the engine yet? Dont make the same mistake as me and go big block(1327). It was a beast to ride, i couldn't get it to quit leaking oil. It needed dry blocked. Also it liked to get hot sitting at stop lights in the hot summer. If I was to do it again. I would go with a 1105 kit, turbo, fuel injection. It would make as much or more hp than a 1327, yet still remain reliable.

    I like it a lot! Looks like you have the perfect basis to build a classic superbike racer, with some modern additions.
    Great stuff!

    For now just stock with a pipe and Iíll start building a better motor when Iíve got the funds for just that but no turbos for me just naturally aspirated 8 happiness

    Please donít hack up the frame as one day you may want to got back and restore it...you never know. Iíd build a 1105 or 1135 10.5:1 engine with mild porting and cams and a nice set of 29ís or other suitable carbs. Something reliable but more ummph than the stock 80-ish HP.

    Doug I wonít hack the frame I promise and I prefer a 8 valve over modern FI stuff so will most probably go for a kz motor of some sort of tuning
