About Me[edit]

Systems Engineer by day - Classic Japanese Motorcycle Restorer by Night. I live in Brisbane, Australia and specialize in Systems Engineering in particular, large scale eCommerce systems.

I am a keen restorer of Classic Japanese Motorcycles, particlularly Kawasaki motorcycles from the 1970's and 1980's and maintain a popular web site dedicated to my restoration efforts at and another web site at as well as some other sites with motorcycle related information.

I have several magazine articles published on restoring Kawasaki Z650 motorcycles. I have written a book for MotorBooks called How To Rebuild & Restore Classic Japanese Motorcycles due for publication in March 2015.

I am the original author of Kawasaki_GPZ1100 and a page listing an index of GPz1100's and a complementary page Kawasaki GPZ1100B1 listing differences and similarities between the two models. I own numerous classic Zeds and a few Kawasaki GPZ900R GPz900R's. My goal is to build repository of accurate information on the classic zeds, Gpz1100's and GPz900's.

My /sandbox is where I am working on my latest article or was the last pure copy of an article before someone else modified it :).
