‘My mate sold it to me for £1100’
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
