The winner of Day Two of Seven Days of Giveaways for the Zombie Performance Drag Bars is Kendra Chase and her bike ‘The Tsunami’!
There were so many amazing entries, it literally took hours of deliberation to decide who should get these awesome bars- and honestly I wish I had more to hand out. That being said, Kendra has redone so much of this bike, learning as she went… and that awesome Japanese wave painting is all her!
Boy do I have a project bike! It’s a 1977 Suzuki GS750. It had been kinda chop shopped into a cafe racer style. It was first acquired by my boyfriend’s nephew… He is a tattoo artist & traded it for a tattoo. It didn’t really work out for him & I bought it off him for $300.00.
It needed some major love! It ran, but barely. I have put in a whole new electric system…. Rectifier, regulator, (guidance & encouragement from boyfriend). Also new electric ignition system complete with coils & all. Not to mention carb teardown & rejetting which was new to me & a real learning experience! We went through a whole range if sizes before getting it right (since it had aftermarket exhaust & airpods on it!). Wheh, that was TEDIOUS! It needed a front fender. Just last night we installed a rear fender (a bit if a job on a frame that’s been chopped). I painted the gas tank with the classic Japanese wave. We have named her The Tsunami! (after all she is a Japanese bike).
The last & final part of this 6 month tour is new handlebars are needed. The ones on there are clubman knockoffs & so uncomfortable. I have toyed around with various ideas of what could work. I read your post & handlebar description & those would be badass! Perfect!
I love your page. You are an inspiration & fellow artist in the motorcycle craft. Thanks!
Much love to a fellow biker sister!
