NEW GTR 350 PROJECT.
« on: March 15, 2015, 09:54:59 PM »
I have a 1967 350 GTR with a low frame number so i got my Boys to start to strip down the motorcycle so we can powder coat
The frame etc they had a great time.
Thanks.

Looks like you are starting them right, Steve. My Dad was not a motorcycle guy, so I had to learn on my own. Would have been better your way. Enjoy them while you can. Their youth goes by in a flash.

I still have the picture of my son and I on the GTR and now he has a son as well.  He is more into old cars than motorcycles but he is a great mechanic and has built several hot rods in the 50s style.  Harry

My girls love playing with my bikes too. I can't keep them out of the shed.

Here is a pic of my two when I first got my bridgestone in complete running, but needing restoring condition...

Is that a standard Z1r or the turbo model ? the blue turbo's are a bit rarer, always liked the standard bike too it was a classy looking bike.

Welcome back Steve! 

That deep red color, makes me want to go out and take mine for a ride, even with our snow!

I've been in love with that tank color and shape since I first saw a 350GRT in 1967!

Looks good Steve, I just love flamboyant red.

Once had a Ford Capri 3.0 Ghia in a similar colour just loved it.

Steve - everything you touch seems to turn to gold, or in this case Flamboyant Red. Great job so far - looks great.

Who did your chrome work?
