Make or Break? Kawasaki ZZR600 Café Racer.
“That looks nasty.”
Yes, it is a classic case of ‘you can’t polish a turd, but you can sprinkle it in glitter’.
The base of this heap of shit is a Kawasaki ZZR600. It’s a D model and wasn’t a bad bike when new, but always lived in the shadows of the CBR600F. It is easy to see why.
The craze of converting old unloved models into café racers shows no signs of vanishing. This ZZR600 is proof of that.
Basically other than tossing the bodywork aside and buying some tat from eBay to replace it, not too much in the way of creativity is going on.
“Who would want it?”
Well me for starters! I got it in a deal on an old scooter! The Rocker had turned into a Mod maybe? I now need to shift it on. I could break it for parts. Time will tell. Bring an empty van and £595.
