Lee Lacey - Christmas Kwaka - Kawasaki Z1b (W)
Kawasaki Z1b Motorbike Christmas Card by Motorcycle Artist Lee Lacey AGAvA
The legendary Kawasaki Z1 was followed up by the Z1a and later still the Z1b seen in the picture. After the success of the Honda CB750 both Kawasaki and Suzuki produced larger and larger capacity motorcycles, this particular Z1b being 900cc. While not quite as collectable as the Z1, both the Z1a and Z1b command decent sums of money and are gaining in popularity among motorcycle enthusiasts, many of whom dreamed of owning one in the 1970s.
This particular bike is seen out side Postbridge Post Office in Devon while the name of the card comes from the nickname given to Kawasaki in the 1970s.
