1973 Kawasaki Z1

1973 Kawasaki Z1 900 for sale.

A rare example of the original legendary Kawasaki Z1. For Kawasaki Z1-Z900 model history, detail and road tests click here

Condition. This is fully restored machine. A full and carefully detailed exceptional quality project from the frame up with work completed to the highest standards. See our photos showing the engine re-build etc. earlier this year.

She is UK Registered with V5 and her last owner bought her from us in 2000. Correct detail includes chain oiler, switch gear and clocks, H/lamp brackets, carbs and swing arm. She was sold new in the USA but has been a UK registered machine since 1996.

She is presently in European specification with no side reflectors and a seat strap (but USA spec. short rear guard and folding foot rests). However, the final specification, detail and colour can be changed to suit your preference. She can for example be delivered in the alternative Candy Yellow bodywork and with the optional twin front disks fitted. Or as another example of the many choices the restorer faces, the clocks presently fitted are restored original items and an alternative to these would be new replica items which with new mechanisms, offer greater reliability. We can do what ever you prefer.

Preparation. All our stock is HPI checked. The bike has been road tested over 25 miles and independently MOTed. She will also be given a pre-delivery road test and check. Like all our machines she will be delivered with spare oil and plugs and cleaning equipment.

Warranty. Three months

Storage. If you buy the bike but would like her stored before delivery, the bike can stay here for up to 6 months at no charge to you. After 6 months storage is charged at £5 per week.

Delivery in UK. Delivery up 150 miles is included in the price. Longer distance delivery is available in our van at 45p/mile, charged on total mileage within the UK.

International Delivery Service to any location is also available. Please contact us for a quotation. (Europe approx. £600, Australia by air approx. £1500, USA by air approx £1000).
