Kawasaki Other description

This is a pretty special 1974 Z1.
Purchased from an estate, and believed to be a  one owner bike. It has a 1200 big bore kit, with 10.25-1 compression pistons- this allows premium street gas without knocking. With the stock carbs air box and exhaust, it is quite the sleeper. I haven't dogged it or "tested it out", but it is a lot faster than stock. It has a lot of pull down low and in the mid-range. If you wanted to add a set of race carbs and a mild cam the engine is ready for it.
When I got it, the tires were old, along with a few other things I have replaced.
-new tires, Dunlop K87 rear, IRC? front , new tubes
-new brake lines. master cylinder rebuilt
-new fork seals
-new seat
-new factory chain guard
-gauges restored by Z1 Resto- Bob Harrington with original miles showing
- nuts, bolts, rubber dampers 
The bike has the complete factory chain oiler, center-stand and owners manual
Original paint on the side covers and tail and they look great. The tank might original too, but it is so nice I'm guessing it's been repainted or replaced.
The tank has a liner in it.
The front fender looks like new. The rear was re-chromed and looks new. The wheels and spokes are rust free and in very good condition.
The bike starts easily with the starter or kick and rides smooth, shifts like it should.
I am offering the bike with the exhaust it had on it when i got it- a J&R '70's 4-1 that is in very good condition. it exits on the left which is unusual
If you want the 4-4 exhaust shown in some of the pics we can work something out.
The stock air box will be on it when sold unless you prefer the K&N's
Bike is 43 years old, and isn't perfect, but it's a nice one.
It has matching frame and engine numbers, Z1F-30366/Z1E-30418. OEM key
Bike is registered, tagged and insured in Georgia. Ga is not a title state on vehicles pre '86. It can be titled in any state as well as exported.
IMHO the bike is fairly priced. You would be hard pressed to buy one and restore it to the level of this bike for what I'm asking.

ZX-10R inspired by JPS Lotus?

Tue, 10 Jul 2012 00:00:00 -0700

Spotted on Kawasaki's Facebook page, this 'Limited Edition' ZX-10R has been created by none other than double-F1 World Champ Emerson Fittipaldi, who is - amongst other things - a Kawasaki dealer in Brazil and who also happened to win his first World Championship in 1972 in a JPS Lotus that had a very similar colour scheme. Fittipaldi started his motorsport career on a motorcycle, aged just 14, before heading to hydrofoils (surely no-one else at world level has ever raced these?!) and then the more traditional route of karting. Question is: what do you think to the paintjob?

EICMA 2013: 2014 Kawasaki Z1000

Tue, 05 Nov 2013 00:00:00 -0800

Following the launch of the heavily revised 2014 Ninja 1000 ABS (reviewed here) comes a not-so-surprising, equally revised Z1000 for 2014. Boasting a plethora of performance upgrades the new Z also comes to the party in new Sugomi style. According to Kawasaki, sugomi “describes the intense aura or energy given off by a person or object of greatness and felt by the viewer.

Steam Punk Bike

Wed, 19 Jan 2011 00:00:00 -0800

This steam-punk inspired bike is the work of LA based sculptor and, er, free thinker, Baron Margo. From what we can work out is uses an early eighties air-cooled Z1000 Kawasaki as a base and is cloaked in this hand beaten alloy and copper bodywork. Can’t imagine it’s much fun in a cross wind, though.
