1984 GPz750

So I have started today rebuilding myKawi GPz750. It's sat for a long, long time. I am going to pull the motor and have it looked at to make sure nothings seized or it won't blow up the first time I start it. After that it's a complete paint job.
I was thinking about making it into a street fighter type of look. Getting rid of the top fairing, putting some dual headlights up there. Anyone know where you can buy these custom parts? I also need a new header, 4 in 1 prefered (the bike is jetted for a 4 in 1) and a lower fairing like they had on the GPZ1100.
Any help or hints is much appreciated. Kawasaki Green this time! It's my first bike so I am acyually looking forward to bringing it back to life.

This forum is dead.

Well I found a bike that looks like simular to what I want to do.
The engine is in good shape the carbs are bad but thats expected. A mouse used Cylinder #3 for rice storage (hahaha gives new meaning to the term Rice Burner) But I drained the oil and it looked great, turned the rear wheel over in 2 gear and the compression was great nothing seized. I was thinking about dumping some deisel fuel into the crankcase and rocking the bike around to clean anything out of there that may be clinging to things, any comments on that idea?
Well anyways the carbs will take me a few days to clean up so I won't be starting it until the end of the week but I am excited about the project. I was thinking a metalic silver frame with black fenders and the body work in Kawi Green. Opinions?
Heres what I have in mind, I found it on a web page in the UK.

I think you can find the lowers on ebay right now. I'm not sure when it was to end, but I saw them recently.
I just got my GPZ 750 turbo back on the road a few days ago.
