    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    Just a quick update on this project, have the bike built and the fairing installed. Just working on some details like mounting turn signals and wiring up some accessories. It is a 77 B1 frame with C1 wheels and brakes, 78 motor with a 82 exhaust. The hard bags are period correct Shoei and I...

    Will Bondo Glazing and Spot Putty work on Bag and Trunk Doors?

    I find that stuff hard to work with and it takes forever to dry... Find it much easier to use a small amount of regular body filler instead, just mix it with less hardener if you want more open time.

    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    Got some 3/16" black textured ABS sheet today, off cut of 14" x 32" cost me $10. I think there is enough plastic there to do 2 sets. Also got some cylinder lock sets for $6 each at the local hardware store. Just need to do some mockup's out of cardboard to get the L brackets and lock sets...

    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    Going to fabricate some locking hard covers for my fairing storage openings since the stock units are not very secure at all. I am going to use black 3/16" ABS sheet, I may even be able to get a stipple that is close the the fairing inner. Just made a quick and nasty template out of paper...

    Possible to retro fit Windjammer RH hard cover lid onto Quicksilver?

    I just answered my own question, found some cylinder type locks used for cabinets on Ebay, they should also be available at Lowe's etc.

    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    The bike is being assembled this winter, the only thing not painted is those bags and my tank. A friend has a indoor spray booth so I should be able to get both done in the next few months. I am now working on getting my fairing back together once that paint hardens a bit. Then I want to make...

    Thanks for that, now I know where I went wrong... I copied the images in the wrong manner. All good now.

    Possible to retro fit Windjammer RH hard cover lid onto Quicksilver?

    BTW - Anybody know a source to buy that type of automotive cylinder lock and key? It has to have cover where the key goes in to keep the rain out...

    Possible to retro fit Windjammer RH hard cover lid onto Quicksilver?

    Yeah, I am not shy on building my own... I would never want to butcher a NOS part just to get some locking lids. I had a look at that listing and it gives me a idea on how to do it, the shape is way more funky than the Windjammer type. Thanks for putting that up here. Pretty sure I can get...

    Possible to retro fit Windjammer RH hard cover lid onto Quicksilver?

    Hi, I was wondering if its possible to retro fit a Windjammer RH hard cover lid onto Quicksilver fairing? How much size difference is there? Is the curved profile the same? I was wondering if anybody on here has done this before? Looking to get a locking cover to fit my Quicksilver fairing.

    Its been a while since I have been on this forum, having trouble adding images into my posts. I have a build thread going but I had some trouble today trying to add images. There are images on there from before but I can't remember how I put them there. I copied and pasted the image URL from...

    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    So this project did not get built this year but I have been steadily painting body parts and have a new bike to build, this build is the same year and model with a stock engine. Body work is painted a 19070's GM light metallic blue. I managed to get the fairing painted... I acquired some...

    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    Been working a bit on this bike lately... The timeline shifted to have it assembled by this coming Spring. Fabricated a bracket to hang off the shield mount bolts to hold a tiny clock. Also fabricated a clamp on horn mount bracket so I could run dual horns on my fairing mount bracket. Hoping...

    Quicksilver on a '77 KZ650 C1

    My self imposed deadline is Fathers Day weekend (June), there is a annual swap meet/bike show I usually attend so looking forward to riding to that. I find it easier to complete theses types of projects if I set a definitive date, if not they seem to stretch way out of control. I have a friend...

    Hi from Canada

    Yeah, The PO gave up on it... He had every part of the bike stripped down including the motor. I got it for $200, not too many missing parts, mainly small stuff. The motor is already back in one piece, I have a to re chrome the fenders and paint the tins, then reassemble everything. I did a...
