Do a search on a guy who went by the name "Trouble".  Just before he dropped off the forum, someone posted a picture of a ZX-14 set up as a touring bike.

Here's the thread. http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php/topic,33699.0.html


But that ZX14 (In that thread) is basically just a ZX14 with things like LSL handlebars, a taller windshield and  Corbin panniers on it. It's a not really any part of a ZX14 with C14 parts. But I do like what he did. JR had his ZX set up similar (well maybe not the Corbin bags). It's a nice deal. But I do not know of anyone who has tried to transplant the C14 parts to a ZX14. You would definitely have wiring issues when it comes to things like the windshield and such though. Yes it could probably be rigged up. But it may take a little work to get it right.

And in the end, would it be worth all the work and hassle?
