Hi Guys, I need some parts. they don't have to be NOS condition but I would like them to be decent. I am not afraid to do some work to make them usable.
I need: z1 battery box, z1 document tray, rear passenger pegs, z1 dashboard- idiot lights, headlight shell. z1 Taillight and bracket, front fender, rear fender. I would love a 1975 factory paint blue z1 gas tank that is in ok condition. I have gotten some reproduction parts and they are ok just not the same as OEM. For shipping I am in Burlington, VT 05408. thanks

There are two styles of passenger pegs on a Z1B. Any build date prior to Jan/75 has pegs similar to '73/74, with the chrome ends. From Jan/75 (roughly S/N 70,000) onwards the pegs were solid rubber on the ends.
I ride Z1's. I have a couple of '75's, plus an '80 KZ1000LTD. My lovely Sweetums rids a 1981 KZ550.

thanks Hardrockminer, I did not know that. My bike according to the guy I bought it from was a theft recovery in the 90's. It has mostly kz1000 parts on it and is very bastardized. I have never had a z1 before so most of what I know is from reading online, mostly from this website. anyways my vin is in the 52 thousands so I guess it likely had the chrome pegs. I'm not looking to make it factory correct perfect matching date codes etc., just want to get it close and ride it. I would gladly buy either style in good condition if anyone has some they don't need.

It's a nice looking bike but visibly very little of it is from a Z1, including the entire front end, shocks, carbs, wheels, rear brake, right control switch, air intake, valve cover, etc etc. You may want to just enjoy riding it as it is, particularly if it's reliable as it is. There is a great book on Z1's by John Brookes...I recommend it if you want to learn about them.

I don't have any spare Z1 parts to sell. I was just curious if your engine was a Z1.

This blue one is a Z1 valve cover from engine S/N 554xx. (Close to this frame S/N) Note there are no semi circles on the end.

The candy apple red one is from S/N 72000 (approx). Again, no semi circle on the cover. I think they started that in '77.

Because of the rather large amount of non-Z1 parts on the bike I thought perhaps the engine isn't Z1...hence my question.

I was hoping someone here may have some of the parts I am looking for, for a reasonable price, so I don't have to take my chances on fleabay. old greek that light you showed in your post is a reproduction, not oem. It does not fit the oem fender and requires drilling either the light bracket or the fender to make it fit. Surely someone here must have some stuff they can part with?

Just checked my dead 75 frame....I can get you a pair of rear passenger pegs and a battery box, I also have a set of both side panels, (repainted non stock colour) I have a Z1 tank but it had the logo area filled, I have a set of headlight ears. I may have a tail section and I know I have a Z1 valve cover. I will look for a tail light. Let me know what parts you want. HTH

That light fits a Z1 fender without modifications. But you're right...it's not OEM.

Again I ask...does your engine S/N begin with Z1E? I suspect it doesn't.

Like Hardrockminer said, there are a lot of things not from a Z1 on your bike. The entire front end is wrong and it looks to me to have a 16" rear wheel leading me to think it may be LTD based. Check your side covers carefully as if you try to attach Z1 side covers a mounting tab on each side will be incorrect.
I would do what is really needed and just ride it as well.

Thank you to everyone who has replied to me, but I am just looking for the parts that I listed. With all due respect I don't need anyone to point out everything that is not stock on the bike. I know the majority of what is and isn't stock. I have posted a bunch of topics on this site in an attempt to learn, and the posts with pictures seem to gain more traction than the ones without. I have a bunch of stuff already and I am looking for what I don't have. The bike runs. I will ride it and enjoy it. I found a turd that I could afford that I can do what I want with, and everything I do will be an improvement over the condition it was in when I bought it. I'm not looking for a discussion, just parts. Also hardrockminer that light does not fit stock fender without modification like I said before.. You can see the same ones on z1parts.net in more detail. Gregz you are correct. Old greek and bluezbike I will pm you.

The tail light will fit a Z1 fender but you don't have a Z1 fender. Yours is KZ 1000.
