74 kz400

It's been 30 years since I've been on a bike. Just picked up a KZ400 the other day, figured I'd join the site. I've got my work cut out for me, but I'm hoping to turn her into a daily rider. I'm sure I'll be asking questions along the way, but I'm going to try to do my research first.

Welcome! And that bike will be a good one to renew your riding skills with as well as bike mechanic skills. Reminds me of my starter bike, a 71 CB350 Honda. I bought it new in Feb 71 for $645 from Meridian Motors in Fayetteville. Rode is 6 months and sold it for $575. The local Raleigh dealer sold them for $795 in the summer and $695 in the winter.

During my search for parts today, I found a 77 KZ400 that runs, but it's missing the seat and gas tank, and another KZ400 of an unknown year that doesn't run, but looks to have all the parts I need to fix up the other 2. Just hoping the parts that I need will be interchangeable. Not sure how much things changed over the life of the KZ400.
