I am in lust over this months BOTM. :P
I remember when Kawasaki came out with the 73 Z1 It was the whole package. Great style, Great Profile, Great performance, and Great Color.
Greg got this bike from a member who got it from the widow of a neighbor.
Paint was tired, Dent in tank. Bike had sat for along time and needed lots of TLC to bring it back to its original glory
Greg was up to the task as he has proven before and the final product of his labors is perfect
Greg does enough to make it right , without just redoing everything. A example is the paint on the frame. Touched up only , not stripped and redone from scratch . This kind of thinking helps keep his restorations as near to original as possible
Greg has a build thread on KZR which can be looked at for all the details from purchase thru completion , including cost of the work
including beer and smokes LOL :laugh:
Greg , I tip my hat to you as a true Z1 guru of restoration
Great Job on this Z !!!!!!
PLEASE JOIN ME IN CONGRATULATING GREG ON HIS Z 1 BEING OUR NOVEMBER BOTM :) :) :) :)

I do not have enough words in my vocabulary to properly give credit. I would love to see this bike in person as I am quite sure the pictures do not do it justice. Spectacular job Greg and congrats! Thank you for keeping such a timeless machine in fantastic form.

Greg, I've sat and watched you wheel deal and keep these bikes safe. You have a great deal of my respect as I have a couple Z1's that I'm trying to put back original, it just aint as easy as you make it look!!!! Fine work and keep it up, well deserved addition to the elite.

Congratulations, very well deserved nomination.
I have a 1980 Kawasaki KZ750 Ltd. I bought new. I recently managed to get it out of my garage after 28 years and put it on the road again (2010). I feel like a kid all over again. Since I have acquired 3 78 KZ1000 Ltd, 1 1981 KZ1000 Ltd, and another 1980 KZ750 Ltd. Love the LTD's.
