A new one from Belgium

#1 PostAuthor: Philippe » Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:49 am

Hello to everyone

I'm new on the Z1Owners forum and I would like to introduce myself.
My name is Philippe, I live in Belgium (East-Flanders) and my native language is Flemish... so if I write mistakes please pardon me. I'm allmost 55 years young ( as a matter of fact I'm 22 years old but have 33 years of experience being that age) .
I have a collection of 18 bikes: 16 Kawasaki's and 2 yamaha's.
Most of the time I buy wrecks and restore them.
I share some pictures with you. Enjoy them.

Welcome!

That is a mighty fine collection of Zeds you have there!

One thing is for sure, your English is better than my Flemish...

Welcome...

Some VERY nice Bikes you have there, However as you are doubtless aware the MkII and the Z1R are letting your collection down a little so in an effort to help out a fellow Zed owner I'll reluctantly take them off your hands for a nominal fee.

No need for thanks It's just the way we are :D .

Oh, And your English is fantastic and I'd hazard a guess better than most of our attempts at Flemish.

Hi guys

thanks for the warm welcome and for the many compliments !
@ Garry.L: I'm aware of the fact that some models litter my collection but I'll keep them anyway, perfection is not of this world :lol:
