I bought a brand new 1975 Z-1B.
The King of the Street.


My dad owned one too. When I turned 16 he let me ride it on the street and gave it to me when I was 17. What the hell was he thinking!!! THE fastest street bike at that time.


My first bike was a '74 Yamaha RD350 (2 stroke twin)
Effortless wheelies, stupid fast for the displacement.

The brand new '75 Z-1B was my second bike.
Do not exceed 6,000 RPM for the first 1,000 miles.
Dutifully observed.
After 1,000 miles I went to my favorite straight road.
I've never seen one engine have two distinctly different personalities.
Below 6 grand, powerful but manageable.
Above 6?
Animal.
I just made it to third gear, and shut her down.
I pulled over and was literally shaking.
Shaking.
I couldn't believe anything was that fast.

Today's bikes would walk away from that bike, with half the displacement.

My first street bike was a Yamaha RD125. Just like yours, but pitifully slow. When I layed on the tank and seat, stretched my legs behind me and supported them on the rear turn signals, it would slowly accelerate to 68mph. I was 14 years old and rode the streets like a boss!

Back to the bike for sale. I think it runs the same 68mph in first gear. Seriously.
