    Tamiya Kawasaki Z1300, 1/6th. What a beast! 1300 cc inline water cooled 6 cylinder. Ive done 10 1/6th bikes and none of the frames seemed this heavy, including the 2 Harley’s I’ve done.

    Got the Fender, tank etc etc painted (Tamiya Metallic Red spray) and the frame started yesterday.

    Keep it tuned right here for more updates 🙂

    So cool, Cricket @bikequeen, but why have you painted your Fender? It’s an electric guitar, maybe you mean your mudguard?

    Indeed, already showing the makings of great results. I'd imagine a water cooled monster 1300cc motor on a bike of that vintage would require a stout frame...! Looking forward to seeing this one along. 🙂

    Don’t worry, it’s just my weird English sense of humor, Cricket @bikequeen.

    Great choice indeed, Cricket @bikequeen
    1300cc, that's twice the amount my own bike has, a beast for sure.
    Looking forward to this one.

    Wow, this one sure highlights the complexity of the motorcycle, Cricket (@bikequeen). Can't wait to see the rest of it come together.

    Some lovely detail work going on there, Cricket @bikequeen, and that engine looks great.
