2,5 years ago I finally got my motorcycle licens at 30 years of age. I had accomplished one of my dreams.
The first one and a half year I drove about 20000km on my Street Triple R and this year I traded it in for a brand new Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200.
On that I went from Sweden through Europe to Croatia and back. I just love this bike, but I miss the simplicity of throwing my leg over a tiny and neat bike to go grab a coffea with my mates.
So when my friend asked my if I wanted to buy his fathers bike that had been stored since he passed away eight years ago I instantly said yes. It is a simple but fairly good looking Kawasaki KZ400 from 1982.The perfect bike for a short ride downtown to the coffeashop. And since I always seem to customize my stuff I began to plan to convert it to a street/dirttracker just for the fun of it.
So the fall came and I began to disassemble the bike and right now its in pieces on my livingroom floor...
So how the heck did I get out from my dark age and started building this Lego-version of it?
Well ther is this woman I met this summer. A fantastic girl with to children that just loves Lego - and bang!! It just hit me how fun it used to be..
So after some searching for my old collection and some Bricklink-orders later it is now finished.
First some pictures for comparison:This blue bike is the one I bought and began to strip from "unnecessary" parts..
And this bike get to symbolise what kind of look I want...
This is my KZ400 made out of lego:
Since this is finished now, I'll guess I will continue with the next one - a chopper/bobber hardtail with shaft drive...
