Hello from Brazil

#1 PostAuthor: Motosuper » Thu Oct 17, 2019 3:16 am

Yes, i'm here logged and joined.
I waited patiently for this step.
I started looking for a Z1 bike in 2009. Remembering that I'm in Brazil, where there aren't many of these bikes. I had the first opportunity to see the bike in 2012, only frame and lower engine. Since then, I have not lost contact with the owner and only now in September 2019 we reached an agreement to negotiate the bike. He did not want to hand the bike over to viewers who might abuse such a difficult project. I did a convincing and negotiating job to get the dreamed Z1. During this time, I purchased many parts of the 1976 KZ 900 model, including many of them in overseas flight baggage. But the Z1 was the focus and I didn't give up. Many local bikers said it was a crazy idea. Yes madness, I agree, but today they recognize that a Z1 could work again. The road is still long, but it doesn't matter. I'll go ahead.

Hi motosuper
welcome to the club!
Seems to me that you have a great project going on over there. Keep in mind that the road will be long and expensive... I restored three Z1's, two for myself and one for someone else so I know what I'm talking about.
But don't give up! The Z1 is a very nice bike and is admired whenever you ride it.
If you have any questions about the bike, don't hesitate, ask them! There are a lot of nice people here who'll give you the answers.
Oh and don't forget: send us some pictures please.
Greetings from Belgium
