Description

MUSEUM QUALITY 2200 MILE 1978 KAWASAKI Z1R-D1 SHOW WINNER!!!! THIS ONE IS COMING OUT OF MY PRIVATE COLLECTION. IT IS A DOCUMENTED LOW MILE Z1R MYSELF AND 2 INTERNATIONAL AWARD WINNING RESTORATION EXPERTS SPENT OVER A YEAR RESTORING HER TO ABSOLUTE ORIGINAL MUSEUM QUALITY CONDITION.  NO EXPENSE WAS $PARED! THANK GOD MY WIFE DID'NT SEE THE EXPENSE LIST. EVERY NUT, BOLT, WASHER, BUSHING, AND COMPONENT WAS REPLACED WITH OEM OR NOS PARTS, OR RE-PLATED TO EXACT OEM STANDARDS/SPECIFICATIONS. MOST OF THE BOLTS, SCREWS, NUTS AND WASHERS ARE NEW OLD STOCK AS I HAVE A VERY EXTENSIVE "NOS" INVENTORY), ALONG WITH COUNTLESS OTHER PARTS.
ENGINE: # [hidden information] IS THE BIKES ORIGINAL LOW MILAGE ENGINE THAT WAS UPGRADED WITH ALL THE NEEDED MODS BACK IN THE EARLY 80s. I COMPLETELY WENT THRU THE ENGINE TO VERIFY, INSPECT/REPLACE AS NEEDED.  IT HAD A WELDED, BALANCED CRANKSHAFT, UNDERCUT TRANSMISSION, UPGRADED OIL PAN, HEAVY DUTY CLUTCH ASSY, FORGED PISTONS, NEW RINGS, PERFORMANCE VALVE JOB, SHIMS UNDER BUCKETS. THE ORIGINAL CARBS WERE ULTRASONICLY CLEANED AND REBUILT, ALL NEW SEALS AND GASKETS. NEW DYNA S IGNITION AND COILS. THE EXHAUST WAS DISASSEMBLED, STRIPPED AND RE-CHROMED TO BETTER THEN NEW SPECS (NOT AN EASY OR INEXPENSIVE TASK). THE ENGINE RUNS LIKE IT DID IN 1979.
FRAME: HAS BEEN STRIPPED AND REPAINTED TO OEM SPECS. THE FRONT FORKS REBUILT WITH THE LOWER LEGS PROPERLY REFINISHED TO OEM STANDARDS. THE REAR SHOCKS WERE NOS. 
THE PAINT HAS BEEN REFINISHED IN THE EXACT MATCHING METALLIC STARDUST SILVER TO "NOS" OEM SPECS WITH THE ORIGINAL DEEP LUSTER IT SHOULD HAVE. MY EXACT MATCHING PAINT WORK IS AN EXACT MATCH THE MANY OEM "NOS" TANKS AND BODY PARTS IN MY COLLECTION. I PRIDE MYSELF ON THE MUSEUM QUALITY PAINT WORK I DO. AGAIN NO EXPENSE $PARED. IN THE PHOTOS IS A PICTURE OF A NEW OLD STOCK TANK IN THE BOX NEXT TO MY PAINT WORK, ALSO A PICTURE OF A BLACK Z1R TANK  I DID.
 THE WHEELS WERE DISASSEMBLED AND REPAINTED/POLISHED TO OEM SPECS. SHE IS FITTED WITH NEW METZLER TIRES "SEMI PERIOD-CORRECT". THE BRAKES WERE COMPLETELY OVERHAULED. THE SEAT IS THE ORIGINAL SEAT FROM THE BIKE AND IS IN AMAZING CONDITION. THE WINDSCREEN AND SEAL ARE "NOS" AS ARE THE LEVERS AND MIRRORS AND MORE COMPONENTS THEN I CAN LIST. INSTALLED ARE THE VERY HARD TO FIND NOS GRIPS. WITH ONLY 2200 ORIGINAL MILES THE BIKE GAS THE ORIGINAL CHAIN AND SPROCKETS.
I HAVE BEEN COLLECTING, RESTORING, FIXING, RIDING, AND RACING MOTORCYCLES SINCE GRADUATING FROM AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE INSTITUTE "AMI" IN DAYTONA FL. IN 1980. I OWN 6 Z1R's BUT THIS IS BY FAR THE NICEST IN MY COLLECTION, WORTHY OF BEING IN THE BARBER MUSEUM. ONLY SELLING IT TO MOTIVATE ME TO RESTORE THE NEXT ONE. I HAVE SEEN AND BOUGHT SOME NICE RESTORED Z1R's IN THE PAST AND WERE SO DISAPPOINTED WITH ALL OF THEM! WITHOUT ANY DOUBT MY SHOW WINNING BIKE IS A MUSH NICER AND MORE OEM RESTORATION WORTHY OF ANY MUSEUM.
