Firing up a 70's AMA racebike and revving it up. The left side footpeg and brake lever had to be removed for the kick starter to work. Normally this bike would be bump started.
Computer speakers just don't do it justice.
I love the smell of race gas in the morning. . .

Real not retro - Modified Kawasaki Z1
Kawasaki Z1A action. An original 1970's bike modified to perform for 2012.
Just having some fun learning how to use editing software with footage from
a GoPro mini camera.
This was an old nail that I restored and modified. It now handles superbly
and is really quick.
1976 Kawasaki KZ900 - modified
My buddy Bill checking his hydraulic clutch on his 1976 KZ900... bike has
been modified in his shop with "one off" custom machined parts.
Motor is 1015cc running Mikuni RS34 flatslide carbs (note custom airbox)
this is his street driven play bike. It is a mix of stock and custom
