Nice article but I wish sometimes they would picture it in the other original colour scheme of yellow and green which I preferred out of the two.

I don’t know about other markets but those were the only two that came here originally.

Each year of the Z1 their were 2 colours per year but ----for the first two years colours  were the same but striping was different  ie for Z1 and Z1a for Z1b  2 different colours completely  inc the gorgeous  blue (believe luminous blue ) then 2 different colour schemes for z900 inc yucky brown  then the same with both the round tanked Z1000s

Very nice example for sale in the, very rare, colour you like Rock. But it ain’t cheap..

The same dealer has a, more common, brown/orange up at £34k though..

Lovely bike in the original colours but too expensive for a 3rd bike for me.

I had a 1974 Z1A (Green with the Yellow stripe).


Sold it about 15 years ago for £2500, was in good condition and pretty original.

Should have kept it, probably worth a lot more now...


Will put a photo up when I find one....

Sold my Z1a in 2009 for £3000 to a mate who totally restored it spending £9000 on it he now knows  that it was money well spent considering what they are going for now

Bit like nostalgia. It’s not what it used to be. 🤓🤓
