Re: Z1000 A1 Wanted

With respect guys, it doesn't matter if anyone else does not "get it". It does not matter about value either. If the OP wants to street fighter a Z1000A1 that's his choice.

Good luck in your search Paul :wink:

Re: newer 'old' bikes

Great looking bikes.
I reckon they will become classics in their own right (in fact they already are doing so). Some of those replica's are stunning. They are far more convincing than the weak efforts recently produced by Kawasaki with the RS and it's brother.

Re: Age related plate

Kawasaki gave me a month and year on mine.

The yank bikes usually have a white headstock sticker giving that information too, unless someone has deliberately removed it.

Have you paid Kawasaki to date it on an official certificate, or just asked them casually ?

Re: My CBX build

The ridiculous DVLA systems virtually force a bending of the rules in some cases. Be assured, you are not alone in doing that.

Well done on getting sorted. :wink:
