Cool! Congrats! Nice that they are so rare! I never followed road racing super bikes.
Come to the USA, and can I borrow it please? I live near Watkins Glen International Race Track. It's nice in the Fall. They rent the track to private parties.
I'd like to make about 10 laps by myself!

You wish.....LOL!!!! Don't worry, I have plenty of mates here and o/s that have kindly offered to take the bike out for a run on the track. The main worry is, if it did fall over, things that I can't get anymore might get broken. When I got the bike in from Canada, I got the seller to take off the magnesium magneto engine cover and post it to me seperate from the bike. Old magnesium shatters very easily. I have had bikes damaged as they go through Customs ( like my R2 with a brand new paint job, and I got it with a deep gouge in the front fender.... ) and I could visualise one of the flat footed Customs or agent tripping over their feet and smashing the cover. There would be no way I could get another, even knowing that 2 people have one each still in their original NOS bag. So it will stay as a show piece in #1 bedroom for now, thanks 'zikzonly'.

Sorry for late reply, Scirocco - been away from the pooter ( computer ). I am not one who takes a lot of photos, I have the original Ebay photos the seller put on, some photos when the transport truck unloaded the bike at my place before it got pushed into the house in daylight and a couple of photos inside. I could post some of those if you like, I suppose. Right now the bike is about 1/3rd pulled apart - started in Winter ( here ) but when the weather got warmer ( you know, 108-112 degrees... ) I went outside to work on the race car, got its first run just before Christmas, had it for 18 months...!! As for starting it, ain't gonna happen. This engine hasn't been started in over 25 years!!! Quick question to you - why the comment and arrow pointing towards the mop and bucket? That is there because I wipe down the race deck tiles in the bedroom that the bike sits on, they get a bit dusty with time. Do you have an aversion to cleaning products....?

Really? I must be slipping. I have nothing but praise for this beauty that SlimJim and Z1BEBE resurrected. One of many they have brought back to their original beauty. I love all the customized Z's on this site, but seeing an original always brings up the nostalgia of days from my youth. Keep up the wonderful work Slimjim and Z1BEBE. It is appreciated and admired by all here.

Same here, slipped by me. I have book marked to recent forum. I don't check regular.
But Congrats Jim! Nice original example. I don't know the #'s But they did not have many green 73's in the USA did they?
I still cringe! Today when I see original motorcycles. And think back to all I dismantled!

I don't like posting pics twice if I can help it but I'm short on shots of this bike.
Richie brought this bike over to my house the day he bough it, used and completely stock and told me to take it out for a beating.
It is still the fastest bike I have ever ridin and I have a real fondness for that color Z1.
Sadly 2 years later it was a black chopper :pinch:

Beautiful job Slimjjim and Bebe Long may she run!
