'I just wanted to tell you that your bike looks AWSOME ! keep up the good work'
......... Thanks Rich, always appreciated........ Norm.
'From Brittany, France. Hey guy, I've been around bikes a looooong time now, but
this has to be one of the most stunning and well put together bikes I've seen,
congratulations, fantastic job.'
.......... Thanks, living in France, I know you've seen a lot of custom work.
I'm originally from England myself, and took many trips to France, and was ALWAYS
impressed with the standard of custom work there. So I REALLY appreciate your
compliments... Thanks again, Norm.
'Your work is absolutly the best i have seen!!! I dont know why guys like you
don't get as much attention as the chopper dudes... It is beond me...............
......... Hi Neill, thanks for the compliments !......Norm.
'I absolutely love your bike. I read about the orginal and met you at Barber in
'06. Your story behind it was incredible. Best Regards- Kirk'
........ Thanks Kirk, I really appreciate it ! See you at Barber next year........Norm.
'I don't mean to waste your time, but as an '02 ZRex owner and lover, I just wanted
to tell you that you don't miss a beat. You do an absolutely top notch professional
job with every detail on your bikes. You have obviously taken no shortcuts on
any of the fabrications needed to create the two Kawabusas. I've seen pictures
of your first Kawabusa and was excited to see the 2nd one. I only wish Kawasaki
would get their heads out of their butts and realize there is a market for these
naked bikes or standards in the U.S. Sometimes I think the Europeans really know
what motorcycling is about. Anyway, I'll get off my soap box now. And again....job
well done! Todd'
......... Thanks for your comments Todd,I really appreciate it..... Oh, and the
Europeans have just been doing it longer, that's all !......Norm.
'INSANE!!! I LOVE IT!! Im on my 2nd "regular" REX, and this thing makes it look
timid...(tail between legs)'
......... Well thanks, I really appreciate your enthusistic opinion, but they
didn't make a REX in a "regular", even a stocker is one of the best bikes ever
built !...... Thanks again, Norm.
'I thought I'd drop a quick line commenting on your work. Your eye for design
is quite good, and I wanted to compliment you on both projects! Your first ZRX
(the green one) is exactly the direction Kawasaki would have to go in to develop
the ZRX - if they hadn't killed it. I think them the most attractive of bikes,
and just bought a '99 ZRX. I would have to say that you've even made the model
more attractive, as difficult as that may be. Maybe kick Kaw's ass with some new
designs - I can't believe there's no market for these bikes in North America!
......... Thanks Dale, I agree with you 100%. I too cannot believe there is not
a market for these bike's in the US ( you can still buy an 07 ZRX in Europe !
) The other thing that annoys me, is that whenever the factory's build a naked
bike, they usually take the engine from one of their "sports bikes" and DE-TUNE
it ! What's THAT about ? Do they think that when you're sitting upright we can't
handle the power ? I'm also a lover of the Suzuki Bandit, and got well exited
when they told us the new one was comin', punched out to 1250, water cooled, six
speed trans, electronic FI, etc, etc., But what did they send us ? a POS that
ain't no faster than the original ! So that's just the thinking behind the Kawabusa's,
It's what the factory's SHOULD be building ! But thats just MY opinion ! I could
be wrong ! Enjoy the Rex Dale, you'll love it........ Norm.
'I am a ZRX loyalist, and have to tell you that your Busa powered mutants are
the sickest rides on the street. You are an absolute genius..'
......... Thanks...... Norm.
