Before Roy’s project

“The tax disc showed 30.06.89 and the bike looked in a sorry state. It came with several parts missing and an ASDA carrier bag with a huge pick ‘n’ mix selection of assorted parts including the carbs and electrics. I did some homework on the web and managed to identify the model. While contacting breakers I was fortunate enough to encounter Ian Powell who has been involved with the Z400 website for some years and has huge knowledge on the Kawasaki twins,” explains Roy.

The final result!

“I became a reluctant bidder on eBay, which has been invaluable. Getting good usable parts was a challenge and most came from the UK, USA, California and Germany. I completed the 2400 on 15 June 2010 and taxed it from 1 July. I’m not a professional, I just like a challenge!”
