1974 Kawasaki Z1 900
Someone once told me when looking to buy a cycle… you want to pay about $1 per cc. Unfortunately, I don’t think this is accurate anymore since vintage cycles have gained popularity…
I have no need for a 3rd cycle, but this popped up for about $.65 per cc, with a title, under 10K miles, so I couldn’t say no.
This bike was made by Kawi to trump the Honda cb750 in every category. It was basically Kawi’s race bike of the 70’s.
Pretty rare. I’ve never seen one before.
– twin cam
– 82 hp
– aftermarket cross drilled rotors with optional 2nd disk
– aftermarket Borrani deep dish aluminum rims!
After giving it a tune-up / carb clean and a brake rebuild, it runs like a champ. Fast as shit.

It’s coming up in 4 weeks. If you remember a post I made last year, this nesco event was pretty awesome. You get to ride your dirt bike on the race track and it was pretty loose with pretty much no rules. https://www.chinonthetank.com/2015/10/nesco-vintage-dirt-bike-track/ I’m definitely going again this year. A month from now. Who’s coming […]
