During the 1970s, one of the most famous exotic motorcycles models you could see was the renowned Kawasaki Z1. And the 2-wheeler hasn’t even rusted until now, not even physically. Therefore, a Japanese workshop called Bull Dock thought of adding some lustre back to the bike, helped by a suspension manufacturer coming from the United Kingdom, called Nitron.
The model was recently mentioned and described by famous magazine, Limiter. The two brands have reportedly fitted the Z1 with full Nitron suspension, on both the rear and front, alongside Bull Dock’s brand-forged “Lavorante” wheels styled to remind of the 1980s’ designs.
The list of improvements goes further, as the wheels have been wrapped in Bridgestone Battlax S20R gums, and the bike has also been mounted a custom aluminium tank and an upgraded oil cooler.
As for the bike’s functionality, its handling has been nicely improved through a reinforced frame, while capacity of the air-cooled 903cc engine has been increased to a blueprinted 1015cc. Additionally, the engine has been fitted with Keihin FCR-MJN35 carburetion, tuned by Yoshimura, and Yoshimura ST-1 high performance cams.
Furthermore, the Kawasaki has also received an array of parts from Win McCoy, a Bull Dock brand, like foot controls, seat, full titanium exhaust and swingarm, all of the top quality, alongside a state of the art Brembo and Sunstar mixed braking system.
