1981 Kuwahara KZ-1
My 1981 Kuwahara KZ1 Rider. One of the famous BMX that came from Kuwahara Factory. Yellow and Black with GOLD Accents. It's one of my favorite Combo Color Scheme. This particular model was also used i
I got started in building this KZ1 idea, from the desire to build the famous "E.T. Looptail Kuwahara". Since I found this frame first, from an old garage here in Southern California,but when I got an E.T Original Kuwahara Looptail frame and Fork from Canada (Which is complete and posted). I sold this frame and fork in EBay to xtremeracingron. He wasn't happy due to the imperfections of the frame and fork, and returned the item to me. After receiving it back from him, I decided to build it. I'm glad I did. It was meant to be. I have build this from the excess parts I had from my other build. This project also consist of 50% NOS Parts.
