Utah Jeff is right.  There are no other bikes that share GPz bodywork.  The 
front fender matches a ZR-7, the tail light lense matches a ZX-7R, um, I 
think that's it.  Good luck!

hello everyone on the gpz list!

i finally got around to reading through all the bumph and managed to post 

i'm the very proud owner of a uk 1996 GPZ1100 (e1 model) prior to this i'd 
always owned twins with an upright seating position, but from the minute i 
opened the throttle sat on the GPZ i had a new love!

i'd bought it relitively cheaply from a mate who'd been using it as his 
winter hack (tuono owners... honestly...) and proudly set about it with the 
spanners, polishing kit and touch-up paints.

after a week i was ready to go show it off, so i set off for a biker's meet 
about 30 miles from where i live, only on it's maiden voyage, i managed to 
hit a deer at whistling speeds... how the hell i stayed on i don't know, but 
i did. upside= i'm fine, downside=bike fairings smashed into glitter size 
bits of plastic, blood on my leathers, and a small attack of the shakes...

anyways, the reason i happened upon your forum is i'm researching the 
bodywork on my bike, I.E alternatives. i've scoured the breakers, evil-bay 
and most second hand markets and cannot find any fairings to fit, pattern 
parts don't seem to be made for the model, and there wasn't a whole load of 
that particular model shipped to the UK.

A lot of parts from the ZR1100 are listed as the same, and a few other 
models share many components, i'm wondering if there's a model out there 
that (with some jiggery-pokery) could be a donor for my fairings?

also there's the streetfighter option... anyone done a fighter with this 
model? i'd love to see pictures if so.

much love
