Re: Engine paint Z1

I have always used Simoniz tough black as Rob says the more coats you use the shinier you can make it. Engine in the photo was painted with this paint and the cases powdercoated.

Re: Mk2 twinshock swingarm options

The photo does not have the top hat spacers that allow the standard swingarm axle to be used and gives the correct spacing to allow it to fit straight in to the frame. They come with Daves full conversion kit.

Re: Mk2 twinshock swingarm options

Bandit 1200 swingarm and complete back wheel. Dave Solomon see does the full kit to adapt. Top hat spacers twin shock mounts and top shock mounts. My last Zed had one fitted when I bought it with the standard top shock mounts. My latest Z1a build has just had one fitted using Dave’s parts.

Mono shock mount taken off and plated. This always bugged me on my old Zed. Rear footrest mounts fitted and a Stainless chainguard completed.
