Hi Bigdjag, absolutely fabulous job on your Zephyr and exactly what I want my project to look like. Been searching the globe to get those 4 into 4s but Webike is out of stock and can’t say if they will be getting any more. Please tell me those Chinese ones are still available been pulling out my hair (what’s left of it) to find a set.
Just bought a 98 spoke model 1100 and I’m hoping to do a Z1 style restoration.
Cheers Dave.

The pipes were a lucky find from China exact same as the ones from Webike but less than half the price and really good quality.
The front and rear mudguards are the original plastic Zephyr ones I had chrome sprayed.
Its a great bike to drive and turns a few heads. A few people thought it was a Z900 untill they look at the side panel badges.
Couldnt afford a Z900 so built my own and its a better bike.

Hi bigdjag, where did you get you plastics chromed?? Finish looks great.

That's an interesting point. A Zephyr is a WAY better bike than a Z900. There are a number of well restored Z900's in my area. Whenever you come across one they seemingly all want to show you just how much better the 'real thing' performs compared to the 'pretender'. They are not even in the hunt with those flimsy forks, bias ply tyres, and flexible frame. Mind you they don't realize my 750 D1 is not really original even though I've gone to great lengths to make it look that way to all but the very knowledgeable observer.

Anyhow, its always entertaining. Now you even get all the Z900RS owners wanting to show you how superior their new purchase is.

Same here, I've even put a 1972 registration number on mine to cause further confusion. :D

I bought the bike like this, most parts were supplied by Cybike.
