Looks like you have a real nice project on your hands, im about to make a start on my 75 Z1b in the new year, do you mind if i ask is the upper part of your frame intact? Are all the appropriate tabs in place? The majority of mine were removed by the previous owner when he "bobbered" the frame, would i be cheeky to ask you to chime in on a tread ill be starting in the new year on the rebuilding of my frame with a few measurements? any and all help  would be greatly appreciated.

Picture of the rear shocks

IT LOOKS LIKE THOSE H2 SHOCKS WILL BE MORE VALUABLE THAN OEM Z1 SHOCKS.

Your bike is looking great. You have inspired me to get cracking on my 77 KZ1000A resto mod and my 75 Z1B resto mod.
The replacement VIN sticker really stands out. If you don't mind me asking where did you get the sticker. I look forward to following your build.
Thanks and good health.
Bob
