Kawasaki had been planning a large four-cylinder machine when Honda dropped the bombshell of the CB750 four – exactly the size Kawasaki were considering. The scheme was shelved, and Kawasaki retreated to lick their wounds and consider the future. A new plan was formulated, and the intention was to be bigger and better, but it took a full four years to design, test and build the bike which was eventually to become the Z1 900cc Kawasaki, released at the end of 1972 for 1973. This ran until 1974 when the Z1A arrived, followed by the Z1B in 1975. In 1976 the KZ900-A4 was the final 900 before the debut of the Z1000 in 1977. In 1979 the Z1000 Mk.II was introduced. DVU 179T was purchased new by the vendor in 1979. He used it regularly, but only during summer months, for the first 20 years of his ownership. Then it was warm-stored inside his house for approximately 18 years, while he used other bikes. Two years ago he re-commissioned the Mk.II, replacing the brake fluid, reconditioning all the brake calipers with new seals, fitted a new battery, new tyres and tubes, and carried out a general service with fresh oil, oil filter, and new plugs etc. Included with the bike are a rear carrier, and the original seat. Recorded mileage is 37,400; the original tool kit is still in place under the seat. Documentation comprises the current V5C, the original owner's manual, the warranty/service booklet, some expired MoT certificates, various invoices and a workshop manual.
