The Kneeslider is fortunate to have a lot of readers from all over the world and sometimes they send us photos about a motorcycle they’ve built, but, though the information is all there, I have to rely on Google translate to sort it all out, and that’s what I was working with here, a Kawasaki ZR7 based cafe racer from builder Roman Juris of Slovakia. Translation difficulties aside, it’s a beauty.
Everything was disassembled, the rear sub frame was redesigned and rebuilt and now mounts a new cafe racer style tail section, the standard front forks were replaced with inverted forks from a Monster, the single sided swingarm, likewise, is Monster sourced and replaces the standard Kawasaki unit. The seat, so often an afterthought on cafe racers, where the builder glues on a thin slab of foam, is instead a gorgeous work of brown upholstery that fits the tail section perfectly.
The paint scheme, strongly resembles the Ala-Verda, a beautiful British Racing Green and gold pinstripe combination that complements the build.
The Kaw-ster is definitely very well executed and the result of Roman’s work is a classic cafe racer with the right stance and obvious good looks. Nice work, Roman!
