The kettle is a nice sound being water cooled most of the noise is from the pipes

I think someone's got a problem. 2 stroke addiction can be treated, so I'm told.
Very nice collection. My pick would be the Z1B from the list.

After a lot of medical research I have found the solution to
2 stroke addiction. I have tried the remedy on myself .

solution:
Buy a stihl fs55 strimmer (2 stroke ) and try
to start it when for an unfathomable reason it stopped running.
The result is quick but involves huge sways of moods and
possible physical damage to said strimmer.

Try it it can work !

Nice fleet of bikes though! oh to be rich

Acquired them over a long period.  Some when prices were a lot lower than now.  I see them as money in the bank so its not too bad.  Bought the Z1 for a grand .  If only you could still get them for that.  I keep saying that's the collection complete but I know deep down its not.  Need to do less restoration and more riding next year.  Retired last month so loads more time to mess with bikes from now on

PS I have a Stihl brush cutter and combi tool so more two strokes .

Very nice i do like the blue,yours looked tidy to start that was a good buy well done.,done mine in 2013 cost me 5.5k to restore plus cost of the bike,the exhaust on my z1a cost me £1400 from zpower in 2011 i think ones on my z1b cost me £900 a guy in the Z1 OC Dave asked if anyone was interested in doing a bulk order of from Doremi in Japan so myself and 9 others got a good deal,he obviously realised he was onto something and he started up his own business https://www.saisei-europe.com/, lots of z1 stuff not much rd though.

Yeah my exhaust system was £1400 about 8 years ago .  I stopped adding up but I always say about 5K to restore if people ask.  I didn't want to scrimp on things but didn't go nos for absolutely everything (front and rear fenders are pattern parts from America).
