i Have Been Collecting, Restoring, Fixing, Riding, And Racing Motorcycles Since Graduating From American Motorcycle Institute "ami" In Daytona Fl. In 1980. I Own 9 Z1r's But This Is By Far The Nicest Driver In My Collection, Worthy Of Being In The Any Museum. Only Selling It To Motivate Me To Restore One Of My Many Projects. I Have Seen And Bought Some Nice Restored And Unrestored Z1r's In The Past And Were So Disappointed With All Of Them! Without Any Doubt My Show Winning Bike Is One That Won't Disappoint.

Tell Your Wife Its A Better Investment Then Her Jewelry, Shoe And Handbag Collection :) The Bike Can Be Viewed During The Auction In Person Or Via Face-time Or Skype.
The Balance Is Due Via Bank Wire, Or Cash Within 3 Days. I Can Store The Bike Up To 90 Days And Work With Your Shipper Or Recommend One.
the Original Non Working Speedo Was Replaced By The Previous Owner With A Newer Unit That Had A Few Hundred More Miles Showing Then The Bike Actually Had. I Will Include An Original Speedo With Similar Miles.
I have replaced the speedometer with the original unit. It seems the adaptor drive was broken so the original gauge does work and it had less miles (8700) then I remembered.
