We’ve set this up because the world & wife are on FB, so it’s best The Lonesome Twin is as well. It’s just meant as a shortcut to this site really, not competition. Easy to find for those who don’t surf much.

Nice one. Can I ask where you got the conversion? Sorry for the late reply.

Unbolting one and reinstalling the other style 😛

It’s something I’ve always wanted to try, and it seems like these guys can make it happen. For a price. I’ve messaged them anyhow. Anyone else know a manifold supplier?

Well it’s been a while, but I’m back in the fold. To me the Z750 isn’t just a bike, it’s more of a mechanical dog. Not in the ‘this is shit’ sense, more in the comfy feeling you get just having it around, and missing it when it’s not there.
I started for a while when my last one was nicked. I kind of lost interest, then several weeks of sitting in…[Read more]

A couple of weeks ago I met up with Beachcomber, who was being kind enough to borrow me a desperately needed brake caliper for my bike while I got the one I’d stripped the bleed nipple from fixed.
This is exactly the sort of thing we had in mind in setting this club up, people helping each other to keep an ancient bike where every part short of…[Read more]

Hi Ron, good to have you on board. We’re a pretty disparate group and there’s not many of us, but someday we’ll pull it all together 🙂

Bike status this morning – needing a little TLC.
Bike status after TLC – completely fucked :'(
It’s been outside all year and I’ve been spraying it with oil to try and fend off the rust. This mostly worked very well, except for the brakes, which had a different opinion.
No sweat, bit of degreaser and they’ll be fine. They weren’t. Bugger,…[Read more]

Just had this quoted at £380. What do the rest of you think? I’m seriously considering it.

She’s old, she’s ugly, but she’s still a pussycat. This tickover is barely registering on the tacho, this is what they’re capable of when set up properly, with sound inlet rubbers and balanced butterflies and air screws.

BSH are total knobs with as much appreciation of motorcycles as Eurovision has of music. Tossers.

Looks great Marko, I’m jealous. A Twin echoing through the mountains is a glorious noise, beaten only by several Twins 😁.
One day we’ll get our act together and organise a tour on these lines.

Kawasaki found itself with a slightly unlikely success when they released the original KZ400 in 1973(??). A long way from the screaming 2-stroke triples and the ‘Boss’ Z1/900, this unassuming little bike turned […]

Even the ‘cooking’ version had a few quirks, usually introduced to assuage a country’s evil licensing department. Sometimes though, they were just considering their market. UK versions for instance had longer […]

Bet this takes you back huh? Tula was allegedly male, though I’m not convinced. I’m also interested in the bike. Could that be a Lonesome™ maybe? What we were least interested in of course was Life helmets, so t […]
