Description

Additional photos of this Kawasaki Z1 are available here for your perusal.

One of the most important bikes of the 70s, the Kawasaki Z1 set all sorts of speed records at Daytona within a year of its debut.

The Z1 has a fun story – Kawasaki thought they were going to be first to market with a 4 cylinder 750cc sport bike…and then Honda blew them away with the CB750. Kawi wisely decided to go bigger instead, and the 903cc powerplant impressed the press and customers with 82 horsepower. In their home market of Japan, the government mandated a displacement limit of 750cc, so Kawasaki created the smaller Z2 instead.

1975 brought enough changes that the chassis code became the Z1-B – said changes included more power, better suspension, better brakes, and a stiffer frame. Styling tweaks included different paint color options and different logos on the sidecover.

This example is VIN: Z1F49350, Engine #: Z1E049369.

The odometer shows 23,546 miles.

In preparation for the listing, the seller had us remove the cowl fairing, rebuild the starter clutch, flush the brake fluid, rebuild and sync the carbs, change the oil, and detail it.

Modifications:
Vance & Hines exhaust.

Scott grips.

Oil cooler.

Chrome gauge surrounds.

It has been repainted and new stickers.

The sale includes a cowl fairing.

Cosmetic Blemishes:



Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Shinko 712 tires with date codes of 2514 and 2714.

The sale includes two keys.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Kawasaki is offered on a clean California title with registration that expired in September of 2017.
