Iconic Rides

ZRX 1224RR by James Compton Customs on Pikes Peak

An interesting document from 2013 made by OnTheThrottle.TV about preparations to climb legendary Pikes Peak on resto-modded Kawasaki ZRX.
If You follow James Compton Customs on Facebook, You know that it’s “ZRX kingdom” (if You don’t follow them – You should start, it’s worth it!). I especially appreciate a small set of manufactured carbon accessories dedicated to this Kawasaki, that make this muscle bike look even more epic (see featured image).

Enjoy – below 4 part story of resto-modding this modern classic (ZRX 1224RR), to take on the most iconic hill climb competition in the world.

4 parts below.
