    New 1200 cafe project

    Hi there, from Ruse Australia. I’v alway liked the ZRX models coming from an upbringing of the mid to late 70 kawasaki’s Z1 900 and Z650’s.
    I’v had a plan in my head for a while to build a ZRX 1200 cafe bike, so I found a cheap wreck and the build begins. I’d like to post some photo updates

    The petrol station image is a little old, we pay $1.30 at the moment, that .80c per litre US

    Not too bad then. I see your dollar tanked a bit since I last time considered project down there. Declined the job mostly because greenback was up side down at that time....
    Watching lots of Aussie ytube lately as I am doing boat project, some good people you have...

    Yeah, most of us live near the coast so we like our boats

    Given you have over 2k of post I’m thinking you might be able to advise the best forum category to post on going projects.

    Not sure if there’s much interest in a custom build.

    Also can I get an email notification of replies to my posts?
    Cheers

    Re: New 1200 cafe project

    There are two forums where I post my projects:


    This one for Rex.



    ... and this for other bikes.

    Posted the snaps because I assume you can't see member only area? I see you have a vintage login but you are not known as a man of many words with only 15 posts. Just join whatever discussions are on going to boost your post count, there is nice photo forum where you can brag about your rides/trips (everyone is a sucker for exotic locations). Once English are satisfied they should grant you full access to the site.
