‘My mate sold it to me for £1100’

KAWASAKI ZXR750

Performance Bikes (UK) - - Your Bikes - MARTIN MIDDLETON

THIS J1 is the sec­ond I’ve owned. I had one in the same colours 15 years ago, but not in as good nick as this. I al­ways re­gret­ted sell­ing it so I was stoked to find this one in a mate’s garage, along with a ZXR750R he was do­ing up. I both­ered him un­til he sold it to me for £1100 – well, he wasn’t riding it...

It just needed the carbs clean­ing. It also has braided lines and a car­bon pipe (the stan­dard can weighs more than a black­hole). I’ve put good rub­ber and pads on, and changed the chain and sprock­ets. To me it looks bet­ter than most mod­ern bikes.

Sen­si­tive mods, clas­sic colourscheme. PB ap­proves
