1975 Kawasaki Z1 B


1975 Kawasaki Z1-B
We are delighted to announce that we have recently taken delivery of a superb Kawasaki Z1-B.
We found the bike in the US where it had been recently recommisssioned after spending some ten years or so in a private museum.  The paint is the stock Candy Red which is correct for this model, and the only departure from stock that we have identified is the chroming of a number of additional parts on the engine and elsewhere. 
We have carried out the following work since acquiring the bike:
  • Strip and rebuild all four carburettors
  • Remove engine
  • Overhaul top end
  • Fit new base and head gaskets
  • Lap valves and re-shim, including new shims
  • Fit new cam chain
  • Re-fit engine
  • Fit new spark plugs
  • Fit new spark plug caps
  • Fit new wiring loom and switch gear
The wheels rims, swinging arm and switch gear have the correct original dates on them for a 1974/75 bike, whilst the exhausts and silencers have been replaced with high quality new parts.  The frame and engine numbers have been re-stamped in the US.  These numbers match and the frame number is shown on the US title.  We understand from a Z1 expert that this practice is common in some US states.
The bike has an MOT and UK registration with age-related plate, and runs and rides exactly as it should. This really is an excellent opportunity to acquire a high quality Z1-B.
