I started this bike for a guy I’ve known for a long time through the Jeep business as a quick “get it naked and make it cool” job. Well, it takes a lot more than I thought to make a ZZR1200 into a cool naked bike. So, 300 hours and truck load of parts later, we have this blacked out beast ready to stomp the streets. It fits well into the “cafe fighter” category in which I would place most of my builds. Think of it as a bike that will hold the door open, but then stomp a mud hole in you when you don’t say thanks.
