The KYZ, looks like the E.T. looptail. KY-1 is a little taller and has a more raked back  seat tube, and steer tube

Re: 1982 Kuwahara KY-1

wow hadnt seen one of these in a while! a neighbor sold me one of these in 1986, for like the equivalent to 20 bucks. rode it for a while, and then traded it in for an 85 cw california, which I should'nt have, since the geometry sucked. pretty cool kuwie. mine was just like yours with the regular gusset, not the one in the catalog pic. although the overall shape was very similar to the KZ, the geometry was totally different, more akin to a race inc frame, with really mellow head tube angle, and really tall top tube/seat tube junction, with a mellower seat tube angle as well, it was also a tad lighter from what I remember.
