Z1000 is one of my big dreams. But z650 is my reality. The thing is that you can easily find a z650 quite cheap and in rather good condition, and second-hand parts are very easy to find. The bike is technically simple, works good, rides well, always starts and is quite powerful for its age and its c.c. The one I have now, a Z650 from 1979, cost me a couple of hundred euro's and still rides perfectly after nearly 2 years...! Great bikes, kind of "little z1000", able to give you kick and fun when you want to, and at the same time very cool for longer rides. What else do we need?

The Z1000 is my dream, especially the 1977 model, but the prices are very different, and even if the bike is in a bad condition. The parts are also much more expensive. Definitely not a low-budget bike
But one day... one day...

The Z650s good and the Z1000 is the business for sure.....but that Z750 with the Dunstall fairing is spot on. The Z650 and Z1000 would be spot on too if they were Cafe'd Wink The mid to late 70s were my favourite years for bikes too.

A nice z750 indeed...! I saw it last year already, it's from some French guy, he has a complete website about all the transformations. As long as it's not the Z750 twin, it's OK with me, cos the twin was a dinosaur, slow and boring... It's actually incredible that Kawasaki could come out with such a bike, the z750twin, I mean... Evil or Very Mad

Hi Z650 - you are right - is a "frenchman" under www.facs_moto.fr.nf/ you can see his side. He produce nice "plastic" parts
for C_racer in good quality and nice price. - Andreas
