Exclamation 1972 and Kawasaki announces...

Taken from the October 1972 edition of CYCLE WORLD.

Mainly tech talk, someone might be interested though.
Should see the Norton chick inside the front cover, and the supercharged Vincent for sale in the classifieds are pure gold.


Enjoy anyways, an article on a legendary bike.

A good friend of mine has recently paid a VERY large sum of money for, essentially, a brand new '72 Z1. He sees it as a future investment and doesn't intend riding it. Damn shame. Absolutely gorgeous bikes, if a little wayward in the steering department, and somewhat lacking in effective anchors. Stonking motor though!

When I was a kid, a bloke out the road had one, and you could hear him riding it home out to the farm late at night, a very loud four into one on it, and riding it like he stole it.
