Getting psyched on the ‘75 Z1 - Orange Crush, (I do love my Denver, after all!)
May have to swap the swingarm as that 170 is a VERY snug fit. May have to go gixxer unit, (sorry, Kawasaki)
A little love for my favorite pup, Gigi. At about 9 weeks, 12 weeks and all growed up.
Finally got the rear fender mount done.
These are the carbs post pine oil soak. They are cleaner - but still a thick grey film on them, which is soft, but still lots of scrubbing to get them clean.
Back to the drawing board…
1973 Kawasaki Z1
The birth of an era,
Another pic of the KZ1000. Kinda digging on this bike at the minute. Pretty sure the right cylinder block for this guy (out of the 4 I purchased with the lot), is the one bored to 74mm, which, if I’m not mistaken, makes this an 1135cc machine.
It’s just such a quintessentially 70s machine: black, chrome, gobs of power, and just don’t give a fuck.
I reckon the next owner is gonna get a lot of attention when they park it.
As I have a number of sets of carbs that need cleaning, I did some research on what works, (without hours and hours of scrubbing).
Apparently Pine Sol works great and it’s safe and gentle.
So the first set goes in - a rack of VM26s from a KZ900 (I think).
This “off brand” has more than 3 times the pine oil as Pine Sol, so hopefully will be 3 times as effective.
I’ll post an “after” pic tomorrow.

Thought I recognized the background - Golden Cruise, last weekend?
I live down the road from here. ALWAYS amazing machines to be see here - first Saturday of the month. Shelby Mustangs, Cobras, Bel Airs out the whotsits, Superbirds, you name it.
