Making Progress… Z1b

Posted: August 24, 2011 in Just Me

As the first week drifts by, I have been making steady progress with getting my Kawasaki Z1b back on the road. First it was fitting a new set of euro style rear shocks, in place of those hideous air shocks that came with the bike.

I have also removed the front caliper, this has been stripped, ready for vapour blasting, and repainting, before being rebuilt with new seals and pads. I have also spent some time cleaning and polishing the chrome work, and the Bill Wirges exhaust system has really come back to life, and shines like new.

Other new old stock (nos) parts are now starting to arrive from around the world, some have been hard to find, but the WWW is a wonderful resource, and all comes to he who waits.
