brock from hedkase was kind enough to shoot me pix and info of his latest build, a kawasaki kz305 chopper. it took over a year to build because, as brock stated, “parts are hard to find for this b**ch!” he also wrote that he “f***ing hates” the carbs and he wants to run a two-into-one setup.
she’s a b**ch, indeed.
this little metric chopper was built with the help of his friend, randy kelly, and they like to show off the bike “to all the harley guys that think it is a scooter.”
brock took her to 92 miles per hour the second day she was finished and calls the kz305 “the little engine that could.”
