This is our Kawasaki 1978 Z1-R for sale at £15,999 ono
THIS BIKE WAS RESTORED BY ONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS AROUND 15 YEARS AGO USING MANY NEW PARTS BOUGHT FROM US.
EXCELLENT RESTORATION to original condition. Finished in the correct blue paint.
If anything it is a bit over restored (highly polished fork legs spring to mind!!!)
This bike was actually the test bike for Knott Mill kawasaki in 1978 and was then bought by Dave Marsden....
So it is a UK bike, reg number WNF 777S (march 1978).
Over 40 years old now so does not need TAX or MOT... We have the UK log book.
The clocks have been refurbished so the speedo is showing zero miles, but i believe the bike had done maybe 35,000 miles but all engine parts have been replaced in any case....
Lots of good stuff on it including metal plug caps, emergency Kickstart (bolted under the seat!) tool kit, handbook. Original small tank. Air box and silencer. STD genuine exhaust. When the guy restored this bike, there were not many pattern parts around so most bits are original Kawasaki parts...
Engine runs nice, All new internals. Good tyres.........all other consumable parts have been replaced as well.
The bad bits: not many.... rear shocks are Hagon units ( i have some new MK11 shocks on order from Japan), a very small tear in the seat cover (it was days before i noticed it.... we can supply a new cover if need be, but not really needed), some of the bolts are stainless....... the little vinyl pouch for the handbook is missing......
Of all the Z`s, the Z1R is currently the most wanted and increasing in value everyday.....in a few years these will be £20k bikes.
