Craigs Motorcycles Kawasaki Z400 A mate built a three-wheeled contraption out of
an old Honda 360 twin. It was so much fun to ride on his farm that I
wanted to make one too. With this in mind, I picked up a clapped-out
Z400 from Vic Wreckers. Looking
it over at home, though, I couldn't help notice that it was a nice little
bike at heart just wanting a bit of attention. It even had a great two-into-one
aftermarket exhaust. It seemed a shame to butcher it, so I set about
restoring it instead. I overhauled the engine, painted it, and found a headlight and tyres.
Over the next couple of years I kept it alongside the DR600 and rode many long journeys on it, even using it to commute to and from a mountain mining camp past Benambra at the headwaters of the Murray River.
