Looks very nice and must be a late one if the alloys are original to the bike.

Need to lose those shocks though. :roll:

The Kwacka Morris Mag clone wheels where a 78 model dealer option on the A2 and I think the Z750 twin?

You could also just buy them from the Kawasaki Centre as a bolt on accessory and stick them on, my A1 had them, also the original spoked back wheel rims rotted out quite quickly. In the late seventies everyone wanted trendy alloy wheels instead of spokes anyway . Theywere only invented in '71 or ''72 made famous by Peter Williams and know as wheelbarrow wheels on his Arter Matchless as I recall.

The bike looks great with the period mods including the Piper style exhaust, which I actually hated at the time but now I like it because it's kind of "traditional" :D

That's Photobucket shaking users for more money. Use the attachment facility below the post window for free. :D

I could be mistaken,
and it's only my opinion,
but I think photobucket is a scum infested, sh1t storm of herpes ridden malware that virally constipates any pc platform that has the misfortune to point their browser in their direction. Fortunately I use a Mac. But then again - I could be wrong!!

Nice bike if I could see it!!!
