Here's my Kawi KZ1000 streetfighter
by Patrick Williams
1977 Kawasaki streetfighter
I bought this unit about 15 years ago. It was a clapped-out drag bike with an engine about to explode! And yeah, I paid for it.
After much cash and many parts I created this Big Z. It's got a Yoshimura 4-1 pipe, braided lines going to dual Lockheed calipers gripping discs that are unbelievably drilled.
26mm Mikuni smoothbores breath into a third-overbore lump about 1066cc, ported and polished head.
Laid down shocks don't exactly put it in a streetfightin mood but I'm not finished yet.
