Hi folks.
Just saying hi and attaching a picture of my Z1A that I purchased way back in 1986.
She had sat outside for a few years prior to me finding her, so I bought many new parts at the time.
Due to lack of time and motivation, the restoration stopped before I got her roadworthy.
The picture shows an almost complete bike, with a number of small things I never got around to.
I have had the bike in dry storage for the last 30 years hoping to one day complete the old girl.
Sadly, I realise that I will not finish her and have decided to part her out.
I will advertise parts in the relevant section here and hope some of you will put the parts to good use.
Cheers
Mr Pinlock

Or add a price to this thread and move her on ignition lock, headstock and cylinder barrels?

Thanks for your comments.
I'd like to see her go complete if possible.

You need to post a price in a for sale thread or the thread will be deleted. So how much do you want for it?

DON'T break it mr.p: it's too good for that i reckon! ANYONE ELSE??.. and I'm sure you'll be happier if it's properly restored or recommissioned to at least, good running condition by a fellow clubster who'll finish your dream n show you the end result. I'm probably too late to register an interest, but; if not, please give me a pm or email to discuss further.. cheers m

Hi MrPinlock
don't break up such a nice bike, sell her completely, I'm sure someone will pay a fair price for it!

All
I contacted Chris and struck a deal on his Z1a that we were both happy with. Just got it home yesterday.
The bike will be fully restored, but I have a load of other bikes in the queue first.

Hi Nigel
Just wondering what sort of price you paid for such a nice Z1A project?
