The first of the changes was to revise the mounting hardware of the front cowl to improve it's lines and position. New brackets and stays we're machined to position the cowl so it's angles mimic the lines of the frame perfectly. To compliment the new position of the cowl the fibreglass tank cover was also remounted and although you'd have to be a Rickman expert to notice the differences aesthetically it's a significant improvement.
So as to not detract from the nickel plate on the frame the entire exhaust system, including it's Sebring muffler, was finished in hi-temp matte black paint and the 5 spoke rims in gloss black. The paint on the bodywork is the most significant of the changes to Rickman's original spec. Rather than finishing the bike in a flat colour from their 40 year old catalogue, Kurumazaka have opted for a much more modern custom paint approach. Airbrushed shadows accentuate the beautiful lines of the fibreglass bodywork and the dark gold paint sets this Rickman Zed apart from any other you're likely to see. If you look closely you'll also notice faint pin striping across the top of the tank and on the cowl...it is, as they say "all in the details" and there's plenty of stunning ones to be found on this beauty.
