What could be done with this beast? I'm looking for a project that will be unique, take up all my spare time and money, and will kill me.

Might be too heavy for that. I remember when Malibu Grand Prix had these little formula style cars with a centrifugal clutch. A bit beefier than a cart.

You could put it in the beater Kawi Concours project you bought yesterday! Masochist much?

I'll do some measurements, if feasible will obtain another frame for the project Might even bolt up to the stock driveshaft. Of course the lower fairing will have to go. GPz1300

Be realistic. You'd go through all that work to make a bike that will handle poorly and be slower than a stock Kawasaki GPz 900 from the Reagan era.
If you don't have fabrication and welding skills, do yourself a favor and get rid of it.
It's not worth risking being in a wheelchair or having a limp for the rest of your life to ride the stupid thing.

Build up an engine stand and polish it often. The engine will be a work of art.

Let me think; project must be unique, take up all your time and money, and will kill you.

I'm thinking homebuilt aircraft. Maybe a replica of the GeeBee. That thing killed almost every pilot that ever flew it. (Engine shape is wrong, though.)
