Bike was given to me from a friend back in 1990. The bottom cases and cylinder head where damaged.
I had a 1974 Z-1 parts bike.
So I used the 1974 engine parts from it along with the chrome cases, rear end, fenders, electrical lines and some other misc. parts to get the bike back on the road.
So the bike is about 1/3 1974 and 2/3 1978.
Stock engine, 29mm Smooth Bore Carbs, Dyna 30,000 volt coils, Dyna electronic ignition, Bassani exhaust. Runs great, still alot of fun.
In the process of restoring my 1975 Z-1 from ground up.
That's a lovely ride Steve. Those Bassani pipes are the icing on the cake! Love to see some close-ups and please get back to us when the '75 is done. Cheers!
