THE MOTOR-SURFER

.........................................................

Documenting life during the first attempt at restoring a vintage motorcycle.

Similar to the zen -like feeling that is realized through surfing,
motorcycle repair can elevate the mind to a meditative state that eludes time and space...
Meaning I obsess over it, get frustrated, yell, laugh at myself and overall waste a lot of time.

Bring back the Classics

Seems like the vintage/classic style bikes are making a comeback... or rather have never left the scene. So as the big names have been reintroducing the throwback models like - Triumph with their 'Classics' series which never actually changed much, Ducati with their 'Sport Classic GT', Honda's 'CB1100' are making a big comeback, Yamaha with the Sakura and Royal Enfield with the 'Classic 500' (yes please!). Well then can Kawasaki can't be too far behind, right? Actually they always had the 'W650' (2004 & 2005 model), but stopped production only to make way for the 'W800'. It's about time too... I'm just finishing up my vintage/classic Kawasaki and need something to make it look good.

The W800 looks a lot like the RE Classic 500 which in fact is a great compliment in itself. Anyway, for us vintage/classic fiends, a modern touch is usually welcome. Check out Kawasaki's official video for W800. Enjoy!
