that is a beauty - I can only imagine how you felt the day you picked that up in 1974. I love my 1974 and I think it is the most 'character' bike out of all of them. I can't believe you sold it but I bet it was the right thing to do at the time. I brought my 74 in from the States two years ago and I love riding it. You guys have all the best bikes over there. Would you buy another?

I'm always thinking about buying another one but they've become very collectable and the price for one in good condition is $5,000 and up. I sold mine to buy a new '84 GPZ 900 (Ninja). A superior bike in every way to the Z1 except in character. I've always thought the 73-74 Z1 was the best looking bike ever made. Maybe some day...

No thank you, Delmar.

Interesting.



I have high deductibles, or what I'd consider higher. Maybe that has something to do with it.

I also have multi-line, but I didn't think that did anything for Motorcycles.
