2007 Kuwahara KZ-1R

2007 Kuwahara KZ-1R

This is number 20/250 Kuwahara KZ-1R reproductions.

I just bought the frame on Friday 6/11/09 online.
Its number 20 out of 100 Black/Chrome Frame sets. I spoke to a guy who worked for Kuwahara on this project and it was one of the frames he took with him when he left Kuwahara.
He told me there were 150 full chrome and 100 black/chrome frame sets.
I have started building this one up as a repro bike where possible.
