“I found this GPZ900 gem outside a dealers in Birmingham,” writes Andy Brown from Redditch.
“I drove past, then went back the following day. It has one owner from new, 11,200 genuine miles and is completely standard – except for the braided clutch and brake hoses.
“When it was new I was 22 and if you’d had given it to me I could not have afforded the insurance! I believe the launch date in the UK was 14/4/84 – this one was registered on the 18th!
“The only ‘restoration’ required so far has been polish and several dusters. I paid £1,400 – or to put it another way my KLE500 and £400 in pocket – reverse part exchange they called it.
“It came with a three-month warranty – it just goes to show what’s out there if you look! The GPZ shares a garage space with a Suzuki Bandit GSF600SK4 – the last of the real Bandits and first of the 900Rs.”
