I have just found a long rear mudguard in my loft from 30 year ago when i had my first 73 z1
are there any code to look for so i can verify it is what i think it is ?

Hi guys
as far as I know, the long rear Z1/Z1A mudguard had no holes at the bottom. At least not in Belgium. I have no idea what the regulations were in other countries. The two holes were there for bolting a piece of metal with a reflector on it. I think the first time there was a reflector added was '75, starting with the Z1B, allthough not sure about it!
Nevertheless, a long rear mudguard is considered to be rare...

If it didn't have the reflector holes it would be worth £100 more.
As it is, it's Z900 /Z1000. About £200 in my opinion but depends how desperate someone is

At current Z900 values it has to be worth £300 plus. Or a grand if good ole Frank was selling it :shock:

Correct! If it has the two holes for a reflector then it will be a Z900 and not Z1. Still rare though. I have one on my 72 Z1 as I can't find one without the 2 holes!

At least £350, virtually unobtainable!

Hi men

don't want to make you envy me but this is what I collected at the chromer yesterday.

These are not unobtainable as you can see, but it takes a long search!
I guess I'm a lucky bastard :D
