I bought this Z1a off eBay in the US in Nov 2017.  An interesting experience to say the least.  Neil McCallum Shipped it over and it arrived in June 2018.Neil (being the top chap that he is) sorted out all of the documentation for us as part of the service.The best thing that can be said about it was that the engine and frame numbers matched.  It was not pretty, but was complete, I hesitate to put up the photos of what it was like, but what the heck!As this project shows, the best thing about restoring a Z1 is that there is very little that you cant get for them if you need it.If you have read any of the previous blogs, you will know that we use all of the same / usual suspects for the restorations. The engine bits have been cleaned by Steve Smethurst  (Steve's Web Site) and Dave has rebuilt it.The bores were OK but just to be sure we have taken the bores out to first over-size and fitted one of our piston kits (piston kit - first over size).The head has been reconditioned by Paul at Engine Tekniks (Engine Tekniks web site).  Dave's top tip - We find it much easier to put the engine in the frame without the head on.Pete Brown of Classic Motorcycle Service  (CMS Website)  sorted out the zinc plating and has built up the wheels for us on our aftermarket rims.  We have gone for a double disk - it is what most people want.Steve has also polished up the fork legs - which we have then rebuilt. We are going to do it in its original US spec trim so it has got reflectors on the forks (fork reflector) rather than the chrome ones that go on…
