Picked this up this morning. I actually rode this thing before I bought it. Bone stock motor with 28 carbs with pumps, still has the stock air box. Chassis has been raked 5deg and has a 6" over club arm with shocks. It actually rode nice, starts up and runs perfect. Paint is VERY nice. Nice list of new things and stuff been done to it. The guy I bought it off has arthritis and is going in for foot surgery and can no longer ride. Now the hard part is do I keep it? I don't want to be on that show "hoarders".

the 70's paint jobs are as cool now as they ever was.
unless you did NOT like the paint jobs from the seventies,in which case they suck as much now as they did then .
i wore bell bottoms as a kid and thought everything about bikes in the seventies was cool so i may be biased. .
omr still wears bell bottems and platform shoes!
ive got a 73 z1 sitting in the barn with the gold/green metalflake body work from back in the day with kawasaki airbrushed in huge letters on tank.
im guessing that must of been somebodys dragbike back in the day ,then they shoved a stock motor back in it and used big motor in something else.
