got one like it yours is sweet.


when it comes time to die,be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death,so when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way,sing your death song and die like a hero going home. chief aupumut mohican 1725

Re: 1980 Kuwahara KZ-1

That's a beauty!  I just acquired a 1980 KZ-1, and it's a bit odd as well.  It actually has the frame dropouts with the circles, but the KE1 dropouts on the forks.  My serial # is T0G0794, so it is just a few months older than yours.  Apparently they were moving in the direction of have the circles drop-offs at that time, but made mine as a mixed set.  Either that or as others have mentioned in the past .. everyone seemed to be drunk at the Kuwahara or Tange plant at that time wink
