Kawasaki 1977 Z1000-A1 restoration

Postby Trodz » Sun Jun 29, 2014 12:55 am

This bike was purchased from Hartley Motorcycles, East Perth, in August 1977. The trade in was a Ducati 860.

I bought it in 2006, and completed the restoration in 2011:

Looks great Terry.

Have you still got the Z Thou?

Do you recognize these rear Koni shocks?

I put a kit in then and work great.

Yes ZORK, I still have the Z1000. Had forgotten about those shocks, it seems like a lifetime ago. Glad they went to a good home, they look spick and span.
