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 Never Die!

The Good Times Theatre video players were used at Kawasaki dealerships in the 1970’s for customer viewing on the showrooms. This restored video features great Kawasaki moments from the mid to late 1970’s. Audio quality on the restored video is fair, but clearly understandable. This is a great piece of Motorcycle History.
