A bit about me:
I'm a genuine 70's bike enthusiast who has a passion for mainly SOHC4 Honda cb's from the 70's. My background is in combustion engine design and development and I'm a fully qualified mechanical engineer with 20 years engine development experience. I've bought and sold several motorcycles over the years and have a passion for this era of bike.
History of the bike:
I bought this motorcycle in the US three years ago. This bike is in stunning condition and has covered only 4. 50 miles from new and its condition reflects this. The bike is the fitted with brand new 4-4 Z1 pipes. amp;nbsp;manufactured by Doremi collection in Japan and of superb quality. The bike is a genuine one previous owner bike and I have a copy of the original US title (I'm the second keeper).
Details of the bike:
The VIN and engine numbers are correct and 'matching' ranges for a Z1b.
The paintwork is stunning and is again a Doremi collection paint set. I also have the original paint set (Red) again in lovely original condition. This will be included in the sale if the reserve price is met. <
The engine covers and fork lowers have not been polished and are the original factory finish - these can easily be polished if required but I've chosen to leave them as-is to reflect the originality of the bike.
The bike is wearing new front & rear fenders. Again the originals front & rear fenders are available (not bad condition. but require a rechrome to be perfect) and will be included in the sale if the reserve price is met. <
The original tool kit is present & correct.
