Looks killer. I'm rebuilding a 600e. Bikes are a lot more work than you would think. I'm installing a turbo so I've been at it for a few months now. You've done a nice job on this bike. Thanks for sharing.

Nice job!

I'm way too old, my restoration days long over, but I admire your youthful energy to get 'er done in such nice fashion.

Exactly what model/year GPZ is yours?

I had an old air cooled '82 GPZ750 and the original '84 900 NINJA...both bought brand new (and sold long ago)

'95 Ducati 900SS/SP

A little TLC, some elbow grease, and some patience go a long way. Fantastic job!
