Twins but not identical. Nice looking pair.
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Looking great ZG! Those'll keep a guy busy! ;D Very nice, how do you feel that the C14 stacks up against those Suzuki's in the way of power and handling?

They are a totally different game Glenn but made about the same power on the dyno a couple months ago as my Connie. My C14 is like a Cadilac in comparison and very comfy to ride, plus I always find that bikes (or cars) are more "raw" from 20 years ago and just "feel" like you're going faster, newer bikes and cars take away alot of that raw power feel IMO...  :-\

Oh boy, I know what you mean alright! ;) My old KZ doesn't have nearly as much HP as the C14, but because of the old tech setup, it sure feels faster! :P Your twins are beauties. Lucky guy! :)

Beautiful! Who wouldn't want to have twins (you can read that anyway you want . . .)?

I'm amazed you could find two in such stock condition. The old GXers were either raced to death, trashed by riders who thought they were the next Kenny Roberts, or bastardized with weird paint jobs, lengthened swingarms and other crap.

Too cool!

Yep, had to travel to get both of them, got one in LA (a 2 year search) and the other in Boise (just dumb luck looking for parts), I live in Portland OR.
 
Thanks for all the compliments!  :)
