I always associated Gary Nixon with Kawasaki...H2R
More like Barry Sheene....

Several places make frames....only one exactly like the second factory lowboy version...
It would be a major time commitment to put one of these together....and $$$$

They will be used....
After a quick look through each chapter of the manual, the RZV engine looks like it will be as much of a challenge to go through as my 79 CBX engine....
.....it looks a bit complex for sure.....

Thanks :smt023
I am seriously relieved that it showed up in the same condition that it looked like in the pictures when I first saw it.
It looks like it only has 6000 miles on it, but it also looks almost 35 years old.....so it will be needing attention before it goes out in public.
