What's up guys. I know there are a lot of bikers on BHW so I figured I'd make a new kind of journal. Follow me as I restore a 99 ZX7R *****. I figured since it's riding season here in AZ I would look for a bike on CL. Well I found this ZX7R for a $500 and plan to get it restored and fixed up for this riding season. It needs a ton of little stuff. The bike is currently not running but I have it down to some electrical issues. So far found a short in the ignition and it seems like the starter solenoid/relay is out. I'm having mechanic over this weekend to help troubleshoot some issues and make a master list of parts to order. Information breakdown: 99 ZX7R 43k miles Purchased for $500 Salvage Title (I have not spotted any real frame, sub frame or swingarm damage.) Needs lots of work Link to spreadsheet to watch my parts and labor list I'll pretty much be living on ebay over the next few weeks to purchase parts. I'm hoping to get it in really good condition for 2k. See pics below.
