Talking New, but old bike!

What's up guyz? Just joined the site today. I just bought a 1990 ZX10 from a dude in my city off of Craigslist on Friday for $1,500. Mechaniclly it's pretty good. I just had an oil change and found out that I need new fork seals and rear brake pads. The only thing that doesn't work is the gas gauge. Not bad for a 20 year old motorcycle. Cosmeticly there are a few scratches and cracks in the plastics and a couple small dents in the gas tank. This is my second bike but my first Kawasaki. I previously owned a 2004 Honda CBR600RR. I didn't have the money for a new bike and I didn't want to take out a loan. So I scraped up the money and bought this puppy. I hope to do all the mechanical things myself to save money. Plus I like to work on cars and bikes myself. I find it fun! If anyone has any information that might be helpful to me or this big black beast let me know.
