I never took those moon prices for serious.

So what’s a realistic price for a Z1, K0 or sandcast in UK?


Vic World very early VIN Sandcast auctioned this month

Thats even less than I´d expect for a 3 digit sandcast here in G.

Updated my price to 30.000 EURO

Slightly ironic - I think Frank sold his red Sandcast at the auction and bought both of the ‘72 Z1’s by the looks of it?

About the tank, I know someone in Germany who can get the dents out.
The rusty spot might be a bit of a chalenge since the paint is faded a bit but I could give it a try if you want to.

Bike still not here, Menno. No idea whats inside the tank.
When so I will come back to this.

That dent-puller is where you are?


That fade is dust.... hopefully.

Bike came in on Saturday (with lots of ducuments, even the purchase order and purchase invoice)

On first view I will need the following parts:

- tank in genuine paint

- number 3 (lower right) exhaust (with "........  76" stamp)

- master brake cylinder

- right handle bar switch

- rear seat grip


Just in case somebodey has or knows somebody who does.

Try to keep as original as possible, so try to avoid replica parts.

Uli - where the hell did you find a set of pipes for the bike?? Amazing.

Did some calls. Begging, crying, impending, sweet-talking, offering tons of money, offering my wife to do the household for a fortnight ...

On second view, I needed the whole set of exhaust. Dings & dongs, scratches and holes.

Just in case, someone needs a "not perfect" set or may have them overhault, I´m offering those "76" that came with the bike:

EURO 650 shipped

BTW: and other stuff

pic after some days of TLC, still with the old pipes (not too bad from that angle)
