DROUIN Supercharged Z1000.

At long last, here's some pics of my Drouin project that's in the final stages. Just needs paint / exhaust and all the fiddly bits sorting. Hope to get it finished for the good weather this year. Sorry there's no before pic's as they were all lost when my last hard drive went kaput

That looks fantastic. Also looks like you might be needing a slightly longer swing arm!!!

Keep it going and where will it be used??

Brilliant,
Love that seat, and I have wanted to do something like that on mine,

Where do get the seat unit from?

Also more info on the blower would be great.

Fantastic!!

Hi.Thanks all for the positive response. I,ve used the same geometry as my Wakisaki Z1R which is stable at 160+ so it should be ok, Also i will mainly be using it for going to the shops and terrorising the locals plus the odd rally and maybe a drag meet or two. Will post more detailed pic's and info soon meanwhile here's another i took earlier, Cheers. Image

Nice job dude. I remember the bike from when it was for sale on ebay.
Been wondering how it was progressing.
Well done.

. Hi. yeah ,it was a right pile of crap. Only used the tank / blower and some engine parts in the end and even those needed major work. That's Ebay for ya. But it was still worth it.
