While we are always excited about new custom motorcycles, we can't overlook some of the older builds that are truly noteworthy. One such creation is the Kawasaki KZ400 Nomad, a unique and classic motorcycle that was originally built by Analog Motorcycles back in 2012.


Analog Motorcycles started with a Kawasaki KZ400 from 1975 and customized almost every aspect of the bike except for the engine. The result is the Nomad, a motorcycle that boasts a parallel-twin motor with Emgo pod filters and reverse-megaphone mufflers. The exhaust headers were wrapped with heat-resistant material to maintain optimal temperatures.


The subframe of the KZ400 was modified and retrofitted with a handcrafted seat pan, resulting in a flat, scrambler-style saddle with cross-stitched upholstery. The battery and upgraded electronics were relocated to a custom metal tray located under the seat.


The rear fender was also reworked, resulting in a sleek, blacked-out look with a Bates-style LED taillight and aftermarket turn signals near the upper shock mounts. The front fender was customized in a similar fashion, and rubber fork gaiters were added for a more classic appearance.


The cockpit received plenty of attention, too. Analog Motorcycles added a cross-braced handlebar, vintage gauges, adjustable control levers, and LED blinkers. The brakes were upgraded with top-grade Hel lines to ensure optimal performance.


The gas tank and headlight housing were finished with a striking two-tone blue and silver color scheme with white highlights, while most of the hardware was powder-coated black. The Nomad was built for the owner of a design firm based in Florida, and while the price is not publicly disclosed, interested parties can inquire about a similar project through Analog Motorcycles' official website.
