Fair point mate. I agree myself.
One thing to point out is that it was cracked due to overtightening of the bolt rather than fatigue in the crown itself.
I'll have a see and see if I can source a replacement.
I know this is an old thread, but there's very little other info online concerning these bikes. I have Alistair Kings old factory intense Kawasaki which i'm now looking to sell, It's been repainted, and is still a nice largely original rig as it sits. It could also be a great candidate for a full retro restoration in original colours though. What did you get for yours in the end? my listing can be found here https://www.retrobike.co.uk/threads...nning-factory-intense-m1.427720/#post-3127934
