HONDA CB 750 FOUR - Ed. tedesca

In a list of the 10 most significant motorcycles in two-wheel history, there is no doubt that the Honda 750 must take one of the top places. But it would also be included if the list were to be whittled down to five models – or and even three. Because when the machine went on sale in 1969, it radically changed the world motorcycle panorama. If two wheeled machines were seen as a mere substitute for the car in previous decades, a spartan vehicle and, with rare exceptions, one of little fascination, a revolution took place with the arrival of the Four.
Now, the motorcycle – this motorcycle – is even preferred to an open sports car in that it is a vehicle of enthusiasts’ dreams due to its extremely modern appearance and high performance: for the first time, a production bike was capable of 200 kph. The technical content was extraordinary, with its 4-cylinder engine, which had previously been reserved for racing, the front disc brake and its five speed gearbox. On top of that, the machine had an electric starter, a feature that alone pushed many a “motorcyclist” into buying it, people who until that day would never have dreamt of giving up their 4-wheel transport the day before the Four came out. Competition was off-guard, so the arrival of the 750 meant the opposition immediately aged at least 10 years. And if that’s not a revolution…

HOW TO RESTORE KAWASAKI Z1, Z/KZ900 & Z/KZ1000

This manual is for all owners and enthusiasts of the legendary Kawasaki Z1 900, Z/KZ900 and Z1000 built between 1972 and 1980. The book covers the complete restoration of a 1976 KZ900, from the sourcing of the bike to its completion as a fully restored machine. Every area is covered starting with advice on the different models, spares availability, and where best to source a bike to restore. Every area of the restoration is then covered in full detail including the engine, frame, gearbox, wheels, suspension and forks, brakes, ancillaries, bodywork and electrics, accompanied by hundreds of clear colour photos to illustrate the text. Additional work on a 1974 Z1A model adds complementary information. What really sets this manual apart from the everyday however, is the style in which it is written: not as some dull and distant workshop manual but in a friendly, humorous manner by an enthusiast of many years who is able to involve and entertain the reader, as well as guiding them through the restoration process. This is the third restoration guide from Chris Rooke, whose previous works have been a massive hit with mechanics, enthusiasts and restorers throughout the world. Models Covered: Kawasaki Z1, Z1A, Z1B 900 1972-5 Kawasaki Z900/KZ900 1975-6 Kawasaki Z1000 1977-1980

IL GRANDE LIBRO DELLE MOTO GIAPPONESI ANNI 80

In the history of motorcycles, the Eighties are characterised by the unquestioned domination of Japanese machines. The progress of the Land of the Rising Sun is impressive: until the end of the Sixties, production only concerned utility models. The revolution came in the Seventies with the fascinating maxi-bikes, powered by exceptional engines but sometimes combined with inadequate chassis. Success was total in the Eighties: engines and chassis became the world’s best, their performance unapproachable. The Japanese motorcycles of those years imposed themselves on the market, became the new point of reference and sent all the other manufacturers into crisis. The technical layouts saw the spread of single rear dampers and complete fairing, the bikes ever more resembling racing machines with number plates and lights. The new motorcycles on display at the motorcycle shows each year embody a wealth of technological innovations: some are of great interest others, like the turbo, quickly go out of fashion. And the interest of the enthusiast is always at a maximum level.
