A white frame is something one does not meet every often. And when it comes to a customized old Kawasaki sporting such a feat, things become really interesting. So here's Jeff Snowden's '77 KZ750, brought back a new life and turning heads even more than it did back in its youth.
Little known to contemporary riders, KZ750 Kawasakis were quite a biker's treat some 35 years ago, and even if Jeff would rather tune a Harley, he could not resist turning the old-timer into a bright ans spectacular cafe-racer.

The original bike was in a very poor condition so Jeff actually had to rebuild everything. And since things were already more or less apart, the old KZ750 got a bore kit taking displacement to 810cc. Gearbox and clutch were rebuilt, too, and the chassis lost the subframe. In its place, a cafe-racer custom leather seat was installed, with miniature blinkers and a dirt bike tail light.

The stock wheels were re-finished in elegant white, just like the frame, while the rest of the body, including the standard tank got a sparkling Team Green paint job. After two years of painstaking work, the green KZ750 got 9 First Places, 2 Best bike and a 2nd Place in the 12 shows Jeff took it. Now, that's some reward, isn't it?
