Starting the bike is a ducati elefant gagiva-750, I redid the 25mm round tube frame I kept the fork, removing the mono, the engine is original, everything else is built.

Lots of work. Yamaha front end.
The builder could barely reach the ground with his toes. He said he had a 30" inseam. Me too, this would be too tall for me. A well placed dab can save the day but, you have to be able to dab.

Pic taken at the Krystall Rally in Lom 2009. Cold wheather that year, but the Z13 is as steady as the old GSXRs, the sound is awesome from the open exhaust going sideways through icy turns

Grafted the CR500 swingarm in, doing a jackshaft to move the chain over...eventually.

Wow that is a thing of beauty! I'd probably not want to get it dirty!
