Kawasaki Z 1000 Café Racer by Lossa Engineering

Apart from looking absolutely amazing, this bike also serves as a tribute to Gary Nixon. The idea was to make it look like a racing motorcycle from the 1970s, and the result is more than successful.

The basis for this project was a last generation Kawasaki Z1000. Lossa Engineering made it devoid of almost all of its modern styling and angled, bug-like features and packed with retro racing details.

The most notable difference is the whole new gas tank which makes the motorcycle’s appearance completely different. Compared to the original, it is much more simple and very in the spirit of 1970s.

Another thing which is reminiscent of the era is the wheels, but they don’t only look retro – they are very similar to Kawasaki wheels from the era. Another beautiful touch is the front fender which is perfect in shape, size and placement.

If you’re into Café Racer bikes, there aren’t many better options than this one.
