This was my first Zed bought in 79
Image
I owned this one for 20 yrs but sold it against the advice of the advice of the wife!
Image
After a brief mid life crisis with this......
Image
I Bought this bike back in Jan, 6mths tax and full MOT from Chesterfield and rode it back home to Stewkley between the snow showers...
Image
Image
It dissapeared into the shed for some pre summer modding including a tailtidy from Hobbo which i changed the light fixing method.
Image
New Z1 tailpiece and panels from Jerry and a light from Zpower and KH indicators with short stems and the seat recovered by Steve Adams
Image
I had the Black/silver number plate on for a while but after a polite warning went to a yellow one.

Dyna S and new plugs gave the engine a lift, Tank was fitted with a Newton aero filler and a breather in the front inner edge of the tank with the vent pipe running up to the left bar and the whole lot set a mile down to Roadrash paintwork for Imperial blue and decals instead of the standard cast badges, and new shox fro M&P.

Knut...the exhaust is a Kerker (old one i think as it came with the bike) i had to trim about 1 1/2" off the rear to get rid of a scuff. Makes a great noise but it will be replaced with a 4:2 that Exaustcraft is making a prototype for.
Cheers also Mikey and Paul for the positive comments.

As its a toss up between either taking up canoeing or donning a frogman suit due to rain (bloody El nino) i have been in the shed again....

Fork Brace and matching mudguard fitted..
