1997 Kawasaki Zephyr 750 United Kingdom

Clutch snapped at 34,000 miles.


This was a great I’d been out of bikes for 20 years due to marriage, mortgage and I remembered the Zephyrs when released them; they me of my biking days when I of owning a Z1000. So I saw this in a showroom, it was proper old school, had the spoke wheels and the brown and paint job from the early 70s The man wanted £1,500, I handed the cash and it was mine.

I was now a forty-something born-again biker.

Now it had ridden through several winters — which are not to Japanese machinery. I’d in winter when I was much I didn’t like it then and I want to do it again, so I decided to time returning it to former I got the alloy engine casings and forks mirror polished, the had tubes of chrome polish into them, the frame was and after a year of fettling, cleaning, polishing and restoring, it amazing.

On the day I traded it in, I rode it to the it was a cold but dry and sunny October the Zephyr was looking its best. I up outside the dealer and left my old steed standing there I rode off on the GSX. I felt so how can a machine make a man feel that?

Dealer told me he sold it than a week later to the bloke who came to see it. Bet it doesn’t anymore.

Would you buy another from this manufacturer? Yes
