One of the bikes we built was our Battle of the Twins winning Kawasaki EX500. This bike lead to the next build... a 900 Ninja. A bit after the EX500, my brother moved to Texas and worked at Quadracycle where they built up the mighty Ninja 900. The motor has a big-bore kit, ported head, flat slide carbs, race pipe and a fortified tranny and clutch.The result was 120 hp at the rear wheel, and it hit 160 mph at red-line in top gear. The bike shortly after it was built. After about 15,000 miles of riding, the bike suffered a minor accident, and was put in storage. The last time is ran was about 1989. Our goal is to revive it by giving it a cosmetic restoration, suspension re-build and tune up. Ebay and BikeBandit have proven to be a good source for parts. Here it is as delivered to the Man Cave, a few months ago. It needs new tires, carb rebuild, suspension bearings lubed, valves adjusted, new fork bushings, fairing replaced, and lot of misc. refurbishment. I started with the Performance Machine wheels and disks, by removing disks and polishing the wheels. I removed the disks in order to polish the wheels: Before: After!
