Fair enough! You guys liking it is the most important part but I can't stand the stuff other than actually lining pickups or places you're walking.

It’s a marmite thing 😁

Looks very much like VW apple  used as Kawasaki green on their motorcycles regards Stephen 

Looking at it, you’re not far off with Kwacker green!

The missus worked at motorcycle store in Exeter, no wonder she chose this colour 😉

 

my choice was bright orange and dark grey

Coming together again, a few bits ordered to arrive next next week to finish off the bonnet and wings. 
 

We’re going to remove the roof again to get it into the workshop to do the rear end and do some work on the lift up part

 

i think it’s looking quite tidy 😁6B4566C4-C9EA-4A7B-83C3-23AC6A43C1DC.jpeg.b4c272d1defa9b1b0e04b2f721dbd24f.jpeg

I’ll spend some time fertling the doors to get it to sit right, it was hammering with rain when I put them on!

Cheers 😁

 

I’ve ordered a new grill surround  ( non A/C ) which I shall do green and maybe the grill...however it does have a wheel in front of it and we haven’t settled on what colour to do the wheels yet....

If you could look into the future you would have kept it worth a fortune now, I had  Z650, KLR 650,GPZ 900r 2 x ZXR 750 Z 1100 Eddie Lawson Replica and various other non Kawasaki regards Stephen

I know! Other than trying to kill myself on it, it was cool looking bike.. I do have a soft spot for Jap inline 4 superbikes, I had a gs850 that was built like a tank.  
 

have you got any of yours left?

 

I moved over to Harleys and worked for them for 3 years which was fun, again I have a soft spot for Evo engined harleys too

That's really smart! I think the front grill surround will work nicely in green to just break it up slightly. Are the B pillars staying dark?

No they will be green as well :D

I was toying with leaving the rear dark/black but Nikki said it has to be green too, and now we're ' discussing ' the roof colour and wheels as well.

Options are a Green roof but the lift up being black or the entire roof area being black.

 

As for the wheels, Nikki wants oversized wheel arches but i told her the only way that would happen is if we get Blindo's....so we're not :lol:

( thankfully as they are far too young for me, maybe 20 years ago i would've thought they were cool...the arches, not the Blindos ) 

 

However i prefer the look without any arches, series style.

 

I know it might look like  i have a secret yearning for a 109 given what i keep changing on this one!  ( i do! ) 

 

As for the wheels, i think we'll go for black
