Default 87 ZX600 Aluminum Frame Racebike

Anyone interested in an old 87 ZX600 Racebike. It was a one year only Limited Edition Aluminum Framed model. The frame was the Japanese Ninja 400 with a 600 engine in it. It has 89 GSXR 17" wheels & Brakes, a Fox Twin Clicker Shock and front suspension mods, Watari Rearsets. The motor is pumped: 14:1 compression, ported & polished head, bigger valves, Moriwaki race cams, Mikuni Flat Slide Carbs, etc. MSD Ignition box. It was a full superstreet (600 superbike). I took the head off to replace it with a stock one (to lower the compression) and replace the rings but never got around to it. No number on the frame. I bought this frame at the track from another racer after I wadded up my steel frame. I have the title to the original frame that may be used to re-assign numbers to register this. I also have all the stock parts. Would make a Great Vintage class racebike. It was very fast and powerful in the day. The engine builder stated it produced 105 HP.

It's buried in my garage right now. I'll take it out and snap some pics of everything this weekend. Trying to figure out if I should fix her up and keep it or sell it. It was a fun ride Might make a great trackday duty bike Just trying to get a feel from others with the first generation ZX600's. Anyone else have a tricked out 85-87 one??

I had an 87, it was red white & gray, i loved that bike it was my first ninja, I don't remember if it had the aluminium [ I'm not sure if i spelled that right?] frame, I did not think they made the aluminium frame model for the street until 88? I do have photos.

Post your pics! I have pics also but on hard copy. Before the digital age. I'll try to post some pics of the pics when I was racing.

I think 85 was the first year of the 600 ninja, you should really think about hanging on to it,
