1974 Kawasaki Z1 Dragbike in 1985 "Old Zs Never Die!"
This is a 25 yo (1985) VHS video of my old Z1 making a 9.54 pass. This is a
7-time National Record Holding Z1. All-time bests are 9.39 @ 138 in the 1/4
and 5.87 @ 116 in the 1/8th. I bought this bike new in March of 1974 and
still own it today. (2010) There isn't/never was a turbo, Nitrous,
big-block, slider clutch, tach, shiftlight, 2-step or any other such
garbage on this bike. Strictly "seat of the pants". The motor was built by
Mark McIntosh of M&M Racing Louisville Ky in 1978. It is 1045cc with 31mm
CR carbs and carried 640# in it's record settng form.
Haters,Squids,Stunters or most Hardly/Zuki Lovers will not be able to
appreciate this motorcycle or the era in which it was created. It can't do
"Stoppies", I don't "stand on the seat" and "Wheelies" are limited by the
bar set-up. "It is what it is": A historic example of a record setting
"Modified" of it's era and preserved exactly as it was in 1986. Old Zs
