Never Thought I Would Find This!

I found the old tripod.com site I made of my first Kawasaki, an 800 Classic I altered for solo riding. It was a great bike!

Maybe its just me, but its not loading for me. But anyway, here's my 05 Classic as a solo bike. Want to run the wires through the bars as soon as time and weather permit. I have 12" bars on it now, and clutch cable is the only one not stock length.

Hmm not sure why it won't load, but that page is 14 years old LOL. I was shocked it even still existed. Before/After pics attached. Had to rejet the carb and alter the saddlebag installation, other than that it was mostly cosmetic. I rode the wheels off it for years, until I sold it to get a Vstrom.

Thank you. After I made the 2-1 exhaust, the heat shields no longer worked. I did have to wrap them twice, only once and they burnt holes in the mid thigh area of my jeans. The inner tubing was removed also, or the single wrap probably would have been fine.

I found a website i made in high school by searching my ICQ (another relic) number. They have been hosting it since the later 90's i think
Nice bike, mines the same model/ color. But sure needs some work

What kind of speakers are those? Im teetering between getting wired motorcycle speakers and just connecting a cheap bluetooth speaker to the handlebars
