This is a 1978 Kawasaki KZ 1000 that has been moddified with a super charger. Was around 75 hp stock and is now around 145 hp with 10lbs of boost. The guy who owns it is a John Belinda out of PA. Every piece that is aluminum on there, he made himself. He is lucky enough to work for Lockeed Martin. Has access to all the good stuff. He does all the chassis builds for my friend Jesse and quite a few others for their drag bikes. We took his frame to him today so it can be modded a bit before the season begins. Thought I would share the pictures of his bike because it is definitely a one of kind, and probably one of the best shapes "78" KZ 1000 still around.

The guy who owns that bike is a genious. He made every bracket, every foot peg, grips, triple clamps, brackets, all of it. Made the intake for the super charger, the pulley's, and all. Nice to have a CNC machine to use whenever you want.

The super charger is from magna charger. It is a something 62. He could have gone with a 45, but the 62 was the one. Sorry, can't remember what it was called, just remember the numbers. Thought you would like that Erik. Your name was mentioned. He had seen your vids and really liked what you had done to your sc beast.

The 62 whatever is what I have. :)

Mentioned me?
Yes, I was telling him about my friend who lives in Las Vegas and built a SC VForce. He said Oh yeah, I've seen his videos of it. He said it was real cool! Of course I had to agree. :tup:
