Default Bobber build thread

It's been a while since I've posted on here, but thought I would share my latest project. I just picked this up from another member here in a non running state. It needs a few things for it to run again, but it should be a fun project! It is an 81 Kawasaki kz440 ltd. It is also my first bike.
On to the pics.


And a shot next to my other two wheeled project.


If there are any motorcycle gurus on here, I could use some help too!
I'll be updating this thread with progress. I am not sure what I am going to do next after I get it running. Suggestions?

I'm not really sure. I bought it in this state. I have just been trying to get it running. Once it's running I plan on doing more stuff to it.

In an attempt to get it running today, I accidently caught it on fire. All is well though. Still messing with the clutch adjustment, right now it is permanently engaged. A little fine tuning should sort that out. I am on the hunt for a stock air box to weed that out of the "reasons it wont run" list. After that, it has to be the carbs. If anyone on here is a motorcycle guru, I can definitely use your help!

Replaced what was left of the air box with pod filters and it finally runs. It doesn't run well, but that was to be expected having increased the air flow with the pod filters. It is pretty close to being road worthy though. Just need to rejet or restrict air flow somehow to get the proper A/F ratio. After that I just need to weld on a few brackets for a license place and tail light and it should be ready for summer!
Here are some pics
