Well, come to think of it.....this is actually my first project bike. HA
I built a home for a fella here in Port Orchard and I looked next to his junk pile in his field and I saw Kawasaki. It was strange to see a Kawi next to a junk pile haha. I looked it over and aside from the mildew and corrosion build up on the engine it actually looked like a sweet bike. I talk to the owner and he said he rode it to work for 2 years and finally got sick of the rain and parked it and bought a truck.....crazy! I asked if it ran and he said it has 14000 miles on it and ran excellent when he parked it. He said he just has had no time to try and sell it or ride it, so he was going to either haul it away or put a FREE sign on it and stick it at the end of his driveway. So I figured, engine runs......no dents scrapes or bends......needs some cleaning.......its a Kawi.......SHOOT, Ill take it away right now. So I did, I loaded it up and took it home.

So far this is it......1981 Kawasaki CSR 305

This is where I first saw her......



Seat off and loading her up...

Well.....originally I was just gonna clean it up alittle then just ride it and see what happens. Once I got it home I finally got a vision for it.

When I first got my 250 I was super stoked and excited. I gave one of the youth kids a ride one day and she freaked out and loved it. She is kinda like a little sister. When I sent her a pic of the bike she was all excited and wanted to help restore it. So, then my vision hit...........I'm gonna restore it with some extra custom stuff here and there, not too much, then once Im done I am gonna give it to her. I am gonna let her pick out the colors and design it how she wants. For the most part its all gonna be stock, but we are gonna paint the gas tank, flat black the frame, re stretch the seat, new wheels and a new $36 muffler. HA
Im pretty excited to do it. I know its a TON of work, but well worth it in the end.

So theres my vision. haha
I will be updating and posting pics as I go........
