Finally finished my 1978 Z1-R restoration, which is the #2 bike on my wish list. #1 is a Z1-900, earlier the better of course. My dad bought a brand new 1974, took me for rides when I was a little guy, and really got me started on the motorcycle bug. He's still around, and he has reminded me that my Z1-R is cool, but not nearly as cool as his 1974 was :) LOL - I am in Orlando, willing to ship of course. Looking for a project if possible, but let me know if anyone has anything to get me started!

Thanks in advance!

Have you seen these two?  Who know what they'll go for, but they both look like they'd make a good project.





The first has Lester mags and dual disk setup.  Both hard to find parts.  The second has 29mm smoothbores, also valuable.

Right - I agree, a 1973 is super desirable of course, but don't think I'd want to pay that price for that bike.

I have two Z1B's.  I would be willing to part with one.  PM me with your email and I can send you details and photos if you're interested.  
I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

Sheesh.  That's a lot for a non-running bike.

Is it just my eyes or is the brake torque lever bent on the black bike?
