The bike was fully restored a few years ago and has also had a full engine rebuild. The bike is immaculate throughout and is largely original. It has a twin disc conversion to the front brake with an age-related disc.

The cycle parts of this bike (which is an American import brought into this country in 2013 and registered on an age related 'M' number plate) were fully restored about 4 years ago when the bike had covered 25,823 miles, The machine was then purchase by Chris Rooke motorcycle restorer and Veloce restoration manual author. Chris then carried out a full engine rebuild.

The original restoration of the cycle parts included the following:

Frame repainted

Wheels rebuilt with new rims and polished hubs

High quality repaint of the tank, side panels and tail piece

All electrical items refurbished (not replaced with pattern parts). Note that the clocks have been checked but were left with their original faces on to keep them original

Likewise the ignition switch remains the original 'open' one and has not been replaced with a replica 'closed' one

Original choke lever repaired (these are totally unobtainable)

New Motobatt battery

Electronic ignition fitted

Parts re-chromed as necessary

Full new 4-into-4 exhaust system fitted

Tool kit and handbook added

New rear shock absorbers

New seat

Since then the bike has also been fitted with a new rear chain and sprockets and new Avon Roadrider tyres

New cables throughout

New steering damper

New bolts fitted throughout

New twin disc conversation using new calliper and master cylinder and age related second disc.

The engine rebuild consisted of:

Crankcase, cylinder block and cylinder head vapour blasted and outer casings polished

New cam chain

New front cam chain guide and top roller guide

New camshaft bearings

New valve guide seals

New valves fitted as appropriate (3 new valves fitted)

Cylinders honed

There is a complete photographic record of the engine rebuild available on CD and memory stick along with a copies of all receipts for parts and services during the restoration of the machine along with the Kawasaki restoration manual authored by Chris Rooke that will be included in the sale. This bike was featured in an article on the Z1A in 'Real Classic' magazine a copy of which will be included.

Many of the parts on this bike are original but there are some that are replacement parts. The following are replica parts and not original:

The exhaust system

The wheel rims (un-stamped replacements)

The rear shock absorbers

This bike is therefore a beautiful machine. Not only were the cycle parts restored recently, but it now also has the benefit of a completely rebuilt engine that now runs very sweetly so the bike now runs as well as it looks!

It's a reluctant sale so serious offers only, please. Potential buyers are more than welcome to come and view the bike at any time. Payment by BACS or cash on collection. Any questions please feel free to ask.
