Repop Monkey Bike tank badges held on with 3M or Scotch (I forgot) double-sided something-or-other.

Here's the current project. I'll do a write-up on the whole thing at some point.

Yes that's a puddle of gas on the floor it's a project and I forgot to turn off the petcock.

My European Spec 73 Z1

This is a pic I took while in the Army stationed in Germany. 1974. The long (ugly) European spec rear fender is in full display - I hated it. A friend and I made the rear sets out of a pair of rear sets for a Triumph which had controls on the opposite side of the Kaw. I had the bike shipped back to the East coast where I started my cross country trip back to California - clipons and rock hard seat still on. The riding position and seat about killed me but I made it! The first thing I did when I got back was to install the US Spec shorter rear fender and a second front disc brake. It was a great bike. BTW, the seat was custom built by a guy working at Motorrad Moroso in Viernheim. I've never seen another one quite like it.

What pipe is that?

I had a Yoshimura on my 75 Z1 B. I lost the baffle once when I needed to do a 500 mile ride. I annoyed everyone on the route and gave myself a headache.

You know I'm not really sure what pipe maker did the pipe. Back in 73, right after the Z1 came out, there were few after market items available - especially in Germany it seemed. The pipe was definitely not American made and I seem to recall Italian made? Anyway, even though it looked "whimpy" (small diameter exit pipe), man did it have a cool sound! Like a sports car. None of the 4 into 1's that I've heard since had the unique sound that that thing put out.

Here's a picture of my 1985 vintage FZ750,I,ve owned it since 1991,it's a 1FM Japanese market bike,it differs to the British spec bikes in that it has twin headlights, different paint,anti-dive forks and flush filler cap.In the picture it's got a black powder coated frame,Ohlins shock & micron exhaust.The original frame colour is a grey/green.
I bought another one off fleabay for spares & I got a single seat unit with that one,but the motors a later 2MG spec and the ignition/crank & pistons are different.
