New lease of life.
These two beautiful Z1R Kawasakis appeared at the annual Mooneyes Yokohama Custom show last weekend. With one sporting a street/strip look (spot the belly-scraping ride height and rigid rear struts) and the other undergoing a sort of modernisation, they both reminded me just how handsome and unique the original slab-sided Z1R was.
Judging by some of the other wild and weird exhibits I made a mental note to myself: must make sure I'm in Japan this time next year.

My first love !!! I purchased a 1978 Kawasaki Z1R from Hectors Kawasaki in Jamestown, New York.
It was $2800 The first thing I did was spoon up a set of metzlers and a 4-1 Kerker exhaust. K&N Superbike Bars and those Funky foam grips
O the memories Thanks Visor Down !!!!!!
My Dream was the Z1R TC with the Black Molly Graphics

That is AWSOME !!!! Z1R TC I wanted that thing So Bad !!!
They were Beautifull ! But what a Slush Bucket the frame was ! In 1984 I purchased the GPZ 900 Ninja, that bike felt like it was on rails compared to the KZ chassis.
Now I ride a BMW S1000 but maybe it's time for a resto project
