Tuesday Night Links: The Custom 1974 Kawasaki KZ400 Edition

Via Bike EXIF:

Tony Prust of Illinois-based Analog Motorcycles builds classy customs based on 1970s-vintage Japanese motorcycles: his Yamaha RD350 is one of the most popular machines we’ve featured this year. So here’s his latest build, commissioned by the owner of a design company based on Amelia Island, off the coast of Nassau County in Florida.

The bike is called ‘Nomad’, and the starting point was a 1974 Kawasaki KZ400—a simple four-stroke, air-cooled twin. In stock form, the KZ400 is a somewhat staid and functional machine, but Prust has customized almost everything apart from the engine.

Cool bike, now on to the links…

    Thanks for the link! and that’s my kind of bike…I love all the black,especially the wrapped exhaust. I’m not a fan of too much, if any, chrome on bikes.

      I was liking this bike the second I saw it. I’m with you, the black trim really looks nice.

    Thanks for the link Steve. My first motorcycle was a 1979 Honda Hawk. I loved it.

      You are very welcome!
      My first (and only) motorcycle was a Suzuki Enduro. Good fun.

    Thank you, Steve! My brother had a bike like that when I was a kid, but I don’t think it was as fancy.
