Goose Replica's

Postby Dave_H » Sun Nov 03, 2002 4:25 am



Just thought I would bring this up to see who's out there who's building/planning a Goose replica. I know Allan was until his recent change of circumstances. Anyone else?


Im looking at doing so in about 12 months when space/time are on my side. Till then I'm hoping to gather info about Z1000's, any other special/hard to get bits used on Goose's bike. etc etc.


So to get the ball rolling, can anyone suggest a good site to clue up on KZ1000's ?. Things like factory specs, availability, mods etc.


Cheers, Dave

finding a Z1000, (77/78 model) in a good condition could be VERY hard these days. In general they are in a poor condition with a lot of kilometers. Buying a later version (Z1000 j, GPZ 1100 etc.) is a good alternative, but they aren't close enough for building a real good replica. Most of restored Z1000's are too pricy.


What you can do is trying to find a good base, incomplete (why not) and building your replica around this base. It's not necessary to have all original parts.You don't want to possess a original restored version with all that chrom around, to put it in a museum, I suppose.


Try this www.tower.net.au/~westpest/zclub.html - 8k


or that

I found this UK based site which was really helpfull in giving me info on The Z1000 model and its history. http://www.z-power.co.uk/Zhist.htm


Replico (mentioned on Peters site) sent me a catalog of their fiberglass bits (same as their web site) and some photos of their "Paris" fairings. the fairings look very very close. they may not be the exact same around the lip underneath the headlight.


They sell 2 identical fairings, one has a 7 inch round headlight. and one a square headlight. They also sell a seat which is kind of similar. Allans seat moulding looks much closer though.

Nelson,


Its been my dream to build an interceptor, unfortunatley money/space contraints mean that I cant do that for a couple of years yet...


Im a bit of a bike fan and am planning to tour around Tasmania in 2004 with a friend. What better to do the tour on than a freshly built goose replica!


I'll send an email to you tonight. I'll just have to beg for a glimpse of Scott or your cars. Imagine us cruising around with the combo of MFP black on blacks and Gosling 1![/font]

If we could get a whole mfp fleet, that would be huge.
