Kawasaki Z1, Z/KZ900 & Z/KZ1000 are for all owners and enthusiasts of the legendary Kawasaki Z1 900, Z/KZ900, and Z1000 built between 1972 and 1980. The book covers the complete restoration of a 1976 KZ900, from the sourcing of the bike to its completion as a fully restored machine. Every area is covered, starting with advice on the different models, spare availability, and where best to source a bike to restore. Every restoration area is covered in full detail, including the engine, frame, gearbox, wheels, suspension and forks, brakes, ancillaries, bodywork, and electrics. Hundreds of clear color photos illustrate the text. Additional work on a 1974 Z1A model adds complementary information. What sets this manual apart, however, is the style in which it is written: not as some dull and distant workshop manual but in a friendly, humorous manner by an enthusiast of many years who can involve and entertain the reader, as well as guiding them through the restoration process. This is the third restoration guide from Chris Rooke, whose previous works have been a massive hit with mechanics, enthusiasts, and restorers worldwide.
