  • Rare 1976 Kawasaki Z750B four-stroke twin cylinder model

  • Fitted with a windshield, rear carrier and stainless-steel downpipes

  • Supplied with some spares, a genuine workshop manual and a V5C

Kawasaki Heavy Industries is one of the largest corporations in Japan producing a wide range of products from rolling stock to ships. After taking over the ailing Meguro Motorcycle Company they began manufacturing motorcycles under the Kawasaki name in the early sixties, first continuing development of the K1 BSA A10 copy but soon moving on to build a reputation for high performance 2 stroke twins and triples. In the early 70s they returned to producing four strokes with the four-cylinder Z1 and in 1975 launched the twin-cylinder Z750 incorporating twin dynamic balancer shafts.

This Z750 twin was first registered in March 1976 and bought by the vendor's cousin a year later. From the recorded mileage on the MOT certificates supplied, he used it up until about 1995 when the bike was put into storage. On his death in 2008 he left it in his will to his cousin, therefore 45 of the 46 years of the bike’s existence has been in the same family’s possession. Recommissioned by the vendor at the time, he stripped and refurbished all the cycle parts but as the engine had good compression and oil pressure these were left as is. This proved to be the correct decision as it has been used on a regular basis since, and as he states 'I'm a great believer in leaving well alone and the bike is still running well'. The petrol tank, side and rear panels have all been professionally resprayed keeping the original colour scheme and it comes fitted with a windshield and period rear carrier. In the last couple of months the vendor has fitted a new battery, front brake pads, changed the oil and oil filter and replaced the original exhaust downpipes with new stainless-steel versions. The bike is showing just over 54000 miles and will come with the 2 original keys and 2 spare keys all of which operate the ignition switch, petrol cap, seat and steering locks. Also supplied with the bike is a genuine Kawasaki workshop manual, original tool kit, a spare set of carburettors, 2 oil filters, spark plugs, contact breaker points, rear brake shoes and a number of MOT certificates.
