UK Z1000A1 - Camper Van Beckons! £5000

Summer's coming and I'm done - I've been living like a hermit in my garage all winter I'm still not finished and I've had enough. My surfing is suffering - as in I've not been in and I should have - and I'm beginning to resent every bike I have - which is too many. Mrs csx and I have bit the bullet and ordered a campervan and are intending to use it as much as possible this year. With that in mind I'm having a clear out - I sold my Bantam - and my Motobecane and in a rare moment of clarity decided that the Z is at a point where it can go as well. (As well as the 400/4 in the pics).

The good stuff - it's together and running and it looks amazing - Powder coated frame - Vapour blasted motor - Amazing paint and striping - Stainless rims - Powerhouse rebuilt calipers front and rear - New taper headset bearings - swing arm bearings hub bearings - Fork Stanchions, seals - New seat - Wiring Loom - Original Refurbed switchgear - Loads of Chrome stuff - Zinc plated bits and bobs - stainless - Dyna -s - A lovely Motad 4-2 thanks to this forum - New Centre Stand - New chain and Sprocket - although I think it's too wide ! - Sonically cleaned carbs - genuine airbox - blah blah . . plus shed loads more. 39,000 miles and change - genuine UK bike with the correct and original numbers. The original tank and side panel badges are present but not fitted.

The bad bits - It's not perfect - it's not finished - so it needs some snagging before MOT - the oil pressure switch light and neutral light are swapped over on the display!! - there has been some welding on the crank cases at some time -the seat needs a latch - there is no airbox silencer and at the moment the air box is not fitted. It is smoking a bit on the left bank - could still be from the re-build. The speedo is showing 32,000 miles. Front mudguard could be better.

Anyway - thats the story - She is more reclaimed than restored I'm have more pics if you want them and I can send the bike out with Scott at motorcycledeliveryuk.co.uk if needed for £150 UK mainland - a bit more for Scotland.

£5250 would probably just about see me even if I don't think about it too much.

We had an AutoSleeper Clubman GL 2.4 with a Turbo add on - bloody brilliant little bus - shot over to France a few times free-camping in it - We sold it for an A class Rapido and now are heading to the world of a rear lounge.

Good luck with the sale. Paint looks great.

PS Selling a bike to buy a campervan - what’s wrong with a tent. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Should read....life outside beckons, more tjme with wife, less time in front of tele or building bikes in the hope of more than one week when you can say on Wednesday " I will go for a ride on Saturday" and know it won't be raining.

Fair play, enjoy.
Cheers,

Mark.

Really hard to carry surf boards as well - not impossible I have done it but Mrs csx gets left behind.

That's the truth - We now have two sub 12 month old grandsons who will need babysitting on an industrial scale - hence the need for a Camper with 4 travel seats and a lounge.

You've not seen my wife! - I was boxing way above my weight 38 years ago when we first hooked up and I still am now. Married 33 years next month and if I said I was going to but another bike tonight she wouldn't bat an eye. The camper thing is a joint decision - selling a few of my bikes just eases my conscience, the new van is a bit special. There will be other bikes.

If you stay at Stony Cross there's a nice big lake you can bath in, that will wake you up in the morning's.
