I was giving my girlfreind a ride home the other day and saw this bike. I couldn't believe it knowing how rare those farings are! Someone did a great job on building a clone.

Mad Max one of the coolest movies ever made. I loved Goose's bike, those kz 1000 are asome bikes. Where was the bike at? Did you get to talk to the owner? That front fairing kicks ass.Gregg

Goose's bike is the one that made me want a KZ-1000 years ago...mine wasn't quite that radical looking, but it WAS a blast to ride! I still rewind and watch the "burnout scene" in that movie about six times everytime I pop that tape into the VCR!!!

"Yeah...he sings...and I tap dance!"

:cool:

I was looking for a 1000 for a while then realized I've been driving by a 550 every day at my friends shop...he gave it to me!

i'm an asshole with or without an opinion! Nice bike, the z 1000 kawis are getting hard to find and the early ones (z1s) are getting out of hand pricewise . Gregg

So I guess you're the owner of the Goose bike? Nice work in the reproduction. I think the fairing is definitely an aquired taste. I wouldn't own it, but I give you two thumbs way up for making it happen, because I love the bike and the movie.

contradicted? I said an "aquired taste" because not everyone likes the awkward fairing, myself included. But I still like the bike. I like it for what it is. If it was on a different bike, different color, whatever, it would not be the same. Just like the corvette form "Corvette Summer"; funky looking car if you look at it too hard, but overall still a cool car.

hopefully that makes sense. otherwise you can have my screen name changed to "mcontradictator" . welcome to the forum.
