Well I am finding if hard to participate on GSB if I am missing the S....Sport bike. My TL is in the shop....sooo many issues that I am considering parting her out. And my ZX7 has been in pieces for the past 3 years. So I finally got off my butt and started putting her back together....here is my story lol.

In the begining there was a frame.......then there was some paint on the frame, and next came the motor (husband helped me put if back in) and the biker was happy. Then came the realization that I am still missing some parts (thermostat, air filter, back of kill switch) and the biker called on the ebay gods. So right now I am waiting on two parts to come in, and still looking for a thermostat.

So today I will stop by and get some new spark plugs, battery, coolant and of course OIL (lack of oil is the whole reason I had to buy a new engine lol). I will put the radiator on and fill her up today and then put the exhaust on and start on the guages and wiring.

The story goes on

The engine is in and I have finally put the radiator, new thermostat, new kill switch, gauge and headers on. I found a stock under tray with lights that I will put on today, will have to find some nuts to fit the tail light and headlight brackets. I think I will get some new hosing for that emissions mod the one in there now looks like crap.
