KZ900

#1 PostAuthor: deka » Mon Mar 19, 2018 12:29 pm

I acquired a kz900 at the weekend pictures attached, UK registered since 1995 originally a z900 police bike
(Potted history:- In 1976, around 250 Kawasaki KZ900 motorcycles, manufactured in Japan, were sent out to California where they were prepared for Police use by motor racing legend, Dan Gurney.)
Mine came as pictured as the PO had started to turn it into a a4. There are some differences that I with an untrained eye can see ie it was originally fitted with footboards with integrated sidestand and a springer seat with not catch fittings.
I believe this one is number 3 in the run and I will no doubt be pestering you good people with questions as I try to find what bits are what, there are quite a few missing, I may have bitten off more that I can chew only time will tell

Not sure why it has placed them upside down apart from wanting to be friendly to our Australian friends

Are you loading the pictures from a PC or a smart phone ? Smart phone images can load up 90 or 180 degree out.

Try posting them upside down, if they still show upside down you know it's the computer taking the piss :)
