Few more as progress happens.
No decals , everything is airbrushed on.

I am not a fan of the gold callipers, so I went with the gunmetal. Still original, just on the Blue KR1s

The cone washer was a pain, I got black versions form a zx600 and I recon they suit the bike much better than the White, I also made a gasket so the metal washers does not score the paint work. I used black nylon washers on the black paint and clear on the green.
Small details but it all counts.

Cheers Marty,
I was building it to ride every now and again however it turned out better than expected. It would be a sin to take it on the road.

Looks fantastic. Bought 1 just like it recently. Had one 26 years ago and had to get one again.

Hi Andy
Bike looks fantastic, do you have the paint code for the frame and forks. Im thinking of re-doing mine and yours looks spot on.
