Kawasaki Interceptor 550 (#378)
« on: July 27, 2013, 08:13:07 PM »
Ive had the sled 5 years now sense I pulled it out of a barm and couldnt stand seeing it collecting dust any longer.  It is number 378 out of the 601 produced.  I will be doing a ground up resto on this one.  The interceptor is my all time favorite sled so I want to do this one right and cut no corners.  I got a better hood with good fiberglass and a repop seat cover sitting on it in these pics.  Disassembly will start soon.

Started disassembly and got the sand blaster warmed up tonight.  All metal parts will be going to powdercoat.

I have always liked the interceptor. Looks like a clean sled to start with.
