Z900/1000 1970's restorers.

    Good idea this Peter, save trawling through all the other posts to try and find something specific.

    G,Day fellow Z fans just to let everyone know that my resto is advancing quite nicely with the bike now in a gazillion bits in the shed. I intend to do one bit at a time so in the next week the frame, swingarm and centrestand will be off to the powdercoaters. I do however believe I was kissed on the **** by a fairy at birth because I was able to get onto and buy a second engine with the only bit missing being the starter clutch and it cleaned up like a million dollars. It will be a second project in itself. I might even try and do a second bike using this engine as the starting point. Well of tho the shed for some more therapy.
    Cheers Bob

    Hi all,
    I thought this might be a good idea, the very least it can do is bring together a few names all of whom wouldn't mind being pm'd about something z9 or z1ish. As chainoiler said, it might even serve as a central repository. I suppose files can be attached like links and pdfs, so hopefully it can build up at whatever speed it does. As I trawl through my internet faves, I'll try to paste them up here, as well as other interesting useful stuff.


    Later........From what I can see, you have to have pics in your profile, to add them here. And I can't see any way to add pdf's etc. Anyway, we can always send pdfs to emails if desired, I suppose. Speaking of which I have the 2005 Classic bike z1 900 story here in pdf format. Doesn't go into heavy mechanics, but a good overview. And also the Z1 900 factory kawasaki service manual in pdf, but it's 29 meg. I got it from one the links to service manuals.

    Sorry, haven't posted anything up for a while, managed to get some teaching work and that's taking up my time. It's really pissing me off I can't even start any of the work that costs.

    Here's some pics of my Z1B project. Picked up last weekend. I will update photo's regularly.
    Howdy all,
    Thought I'd stick my head in and say hello, see what all the fuss is about, what sort of info i can find out to complete my project.
