I started kits manufacturing a little over a year ago. That was beginning of December, year 2015 and I just finished to publish all materials about Kawasaki Zephyr cafe-roadster project and began to think about further projects when I got an email from France with question about kit purchase. In that time procedure of manufacturing wasn’t formalized and established like it is now, so I have to design and experiment and so on. But in month kit was ready and I sent it to France.
As the year passed I decided to ask my first client about experience with kit. So I contacted him and received an answer that there were no problems with kit at all. The only complaint was about saddle turned out to be a bit hard for long rides. But this is a matter of style: making it more thick may cause loss of elegance.
And yet he sent me photos of his Zephyr. His bike looks really great: clean lines, and colour scheme of tail which continues original pattern on tank and handlebar, and mirror, and so on.
Thanks so much for positive feedback and photos!
