Thunder Chunky

1994 KAWASAKI ZX-7


The name alone makes most men regret certain choices in their lives. ThunderChunky, or T-Clap as she was affectionately known, was a close air support tarmac pig. The relic of a lost conflict, she had been resigned to a mechanized inter nment camp. Most of her kind had been scrapped, but a few, T-Clap among them, found new life hunting Zack along the lonely stretches of the Southwestern perimeter. Respectable performance from her midweight 750cc motor was augmented with a host of international upgrades. Swedish suspension, Italian exhaust, Spanish brakes, and Japanese lighting kept her operationally significant. American D616 rubber mounted on forged Assault wheels allowed extended range once the pavement ended. And the pavement always ended. She was neither the tip of the spear, nor the blow of the hammer, but when dirt needed doing, ThunderChunky was your lady.
