Kawasaki Other description

Up for auction is my 1973 Z1 900 Kawasaki.   I bought the bike from the original owner in Powell, WY a few years ago.   In 1976 this motorcycle was involved in an accident which unfortunately required a new frame, gauges, three turn signals  three exhaust pipes and a new front rim.  The photo's show the newer OEM part numbers of the replaced parts.  The frame still has the original factory part number Kawasaki sticker on it.  (see photo's)  Since I took possession I have replaced the original seat, gas tank, side panels, and rear fender.  I also installed brand new turn signals as well as the posts. The bike does need new tires.  I have the a new front for it.  I also do have an airbox cover for the air cleaner cavity.  All the electrics work well.  The bike shifts nice but it does run a little rough.  Carburetors.  I do have a new carburetor seal kit which will go with the bike as well. The bike does present itself really well.  Overall it's in very nice condition.  The one exhaust header does have two dimple dents in it.  (see photo)  The  left side upper pipe also has a small dent just forward of the mounting bolt. (see photo).  The wiring harness is original so there are two small tears in the wiring sheath  which runs to the handlebar controls.  (see photos)   I do not have the original mirrors. 

The original owner told me that when he had the accident the bike only had about three thousand miles on it.  Post accident miles are 5131. 

The frame does not have any VIN numbers stamped on the steering head.  However as you can see from the title, (see photo) the VIN number is correct for the engine number.  Also my local sheriff's department did inform me that I could have the frame stamped.  I just chose not to.    

The bike has the original 2 keys and factory key strap, tool kit and owners manual.

Yes, the video may be old (that's Barry Sheene doing the voice-over) but it's still worth seeing. This mad Fin was the inspiration for every stunt rider you've ever seen. Forget the White Helmets or Dave Taylor, he practically invented stunt riding all by himself.
