1974 Kawasaki Other on 2040-motos
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 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.

Kawasaki, today, launched the long-awaited streetfighter version of the Ninja 250 in Asia. Dubbed the Z250 SL (Super Lightweight), some may call it the baby Z1000. That nickname, while fitting, is already reserved for the standard Z250, which draws a middle ground in terms of riding position (and amount of plastic) between the Z250 SL and the supersport Ninja 250. Designed for the sports-minded urban commuter, Kawasaki heralds this lighter, racier alternative to the Z250 as the perfect companion for someone looking for Ninja-based performance, quick, nimble handling, and aggressive ergonomics.Wed, 18 Jan 2012 00:00:00 -0800
