Kawasaki love. Project cafe racer

My grandmother died in 1997 and we put her bike in storage. Yesterday we decided to restore it and over the next week I plan on doing a frame off.

Carbs were total molasses. Better soft and sticky than dry and rusty!

I had to pry the diaphragms out. Tubes were stuck with dark sticky mush.

Found me a new toy to play with. Lol. I love these home made contraptions. I went to the hood to get it. They come up with all kinds of fun stuff to ride.
