KAWASAKI - Z1A 900
1974 Kawasaki Z1A 900 Unregistered US Import Classic Running Restoration Project
This well-respected, and very much sought-after Tax & MOT exempt 1974 Kawasaki Z1A 900 has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life – the climate is far kinder to motorcycles than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 15535 miles and has been in dry storage for a considerable time have helped maintain its boyish good looks.
As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – Mirrors, front indicators & standard airbox assy being the most obvious. It has stood a while, so the battery is flat. It has some interesting after-market parts like the custom paint job, drilled discs, fancy front brake master cylinder, K&N filters & 4:1 exhaust system.
This is the actual bike for sale – Not library pictures from years ago & it is every bit as nice as it looks here.....A great find!
The wheels look straight with clean chrome rims, good hubs & brake plate, discs, calipers & working master cylinder. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguards are both solid & are tidy. Taillight assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look good. Carburettors are free sliding off the twist grip. Paintwork is solid, fuel tank is coated inside & is half full of stale fuel. Seat is brand new. Chain guard is tidy as is the grab rail.
The engine is cosmetically clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression BUT BEST OF ALL when we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it fresh fuel, gave it a few prods it fires, starts, runs & revs but it is obvious the carbs need attention.
We are selling this bike as a trade clearance project so make us an offer and get started!
