What

I own an 1979 Kawasaki KZ750. It's been sitting for a little over 3 years, and no longer runs to my knowledge. I want to tear it apart and rebuild it with an electric motor and batteries.

The Plan

In brief:

  • Tear down the entire bike to the frame
  • Purchase an appropriate electric motor
  • Purchase batteries
  • Try not to become an organ donor

Status

Teardown of the bike is in progress. Currently only items remaining are the engine itself and the wheels. All accessories, electronics, wiring, carbs, etc have been removed. Pics to follow.
