Colour looks good but the stripe on the bottom doesn't look right.
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Why are you doing a Z1B in '73 colours?

I think it would sell better in original colours.

I do this for my enjoyment, next owner can do as he pleases.
My childhood was normal. Life from 13 to 25 was crazy and out of control several times. I came to God when I was 25 during a crisis.
When I get one running I ride out to South Haven and remember how it was back then and how it is now (lots better).

The carbs were disassembled and in a box when I got the bike.
In the box were six new cam bearings.
I better look and see whats going on.
The cams and bearings are nice however two bolts broke removing caps.
