Question about 1975 kawasaki Z1B
I really need to be honest with you. The bike is not worth fixing. Finding parts would be a nightmare. You will put more money into the bike, $3500 or so, than anyone will ever pay for it. The valves will need a workover, the pistons will need to have the rings freed up, The cylinders will need a hone or a fresh bore job along with new oversize pistons and rings, gas tank will be rusted internally, and the carbs will need to be cleaned or replaced. The shop doing the repairs, if you can find one willing to do the repairs, will be charging around $1500 labor. Now, is the transmission all okay or does it have a bent shift fork or two? I could go on and on with the repairs needed. I really hate to see a bike like yours. One part of me says " Hey, I could fix it up '. Another part of me says " Better to just let the dream die than waste the time and money. " Again, sorry about having to tell you this. Please rate my answer.
