Mike sends in these beautiful restoration shots of his well traveled Z1.
Thought I’d send pics of my old baby for your blog …
Brought the bike over with me from the UK. Finally decided to do a complete restore thinking it’d cost about $3k … $10k+ later … couldn’t ride it because she was so very pretty.
Sold it after 500 miles but will forever cherish the personal challenge. Screws were self cleaned and re-plated or re-chromed like stock. All parts powder coated. Engine black coat was baked on in my kitchen oven (yes, I was single!). Basically went through what we all go through when it comes to our toys.
Fantastic Work! Don’t know how you could let a beauty like that go. Thanks Much!
