Kawasaki Z900 1976
Here we have a great original condition 1976 Kawasaki Z900, first registered in the UK on the 1st August 1976 and showing a mileage of 14,741, this is backed up by a number of old MOT certificates and general receipts. With the and only 4 previous owners showing on the V5 it’s a great addition to any garage!
Introduced in 1974, the Z1A featured different tank livery and a plain alloy finish for the engine’s upper half, the Z1’s having been black, together with minor mechanical alterations. The Z1B, introduced in 1975, featured different tank livery and the plain alloy finish for the upper engine first seen on the Z1A, together with minor mechanical alterations including the adoption of a sealed drive chain and the deletion of the chain oiler. In 1976 the model was mildly revised yet again and renamed ‘Z900’, gaining twin front discs and 26mm carburettors among other more minor changes. Few bikes from Japan have had as much of an impact on the motorcycling world as Kawasaki’s original ‘Big Zed’, and today all versions of this landmark model are highly sought after.
