Yes! A new build from our Dutch fellows of Wrench Kings! Last year they’ve shown us what they are capable of with their cool Honda GL500 Café Racer and this time a Kawasaki Z650 is turned into a cool bratstyle bike.

It started with a small question from one of their clients: “could you do some small mods on my ’78 Z650?”. Hell yeah! But why not do the whole bike? Ok! So the owner brought in 5 crates of parts…

The previous owner chopped up the bike and tried turning it into some kind of chopper and used a lot of steel. So getting this Kawa back to something rideable took some time.

Most important thing was to create a ride that is road legal and practical for normal use.
