    Great drawing! (Though I think it is a ZX6-R Ninja, not a ZXR 750?). Not wishing to nit-pick but my bike is a ZX6-R and that looks just like it!

    Not sure about that. I used to have a ZX9-R (V-reg), and the headlamp and screen were more curved than that, not so angular.

    I could have sworn it was a black and white photograph at first look! Excellent!

    There are a few mistakes, it was done with a 0.1mm drawing pen, all dots. Took over 3 months.

    Steve's drawing is a mid-90's bike - the ZX's did get curvier 98/99 - here's a '95 ZX6-R



    Slightly later one, but more similar position to the drawing:



    But it could equally be a c. 95 ZX9-R - they're very similar visually



    By 98, they were indeed more curvy.



    Sorry Steve, in any case, an excellent drawing - 3 months!

    I remember taking a test ride on a GPX600R. Bloody awful thing. No poke apart from a very short 'zing' at the extreme top and horrible low speed handling.

    I remember a friend owning a GPX600R and indeed it was bloody awful. Kawasaki were my favourites from 1977 to 1994 but they did make some bloody awful bikes.

    I loved my GPX600R, mind you I went from a GPz500s.

    Speaking of ZXs, hes my 9R from quite a while ago, along with a Tuono i had at the time.
    The Tuono was an absolute beast and would gladly spin the rear wheel in 3rd if it was damp. That said, it had been fettled a bit.
    I'm tempted to get another just for shits and giggles.



    And one of my minty SRAD. It was in the bedroom because i was having the garage roof replaced.
