No doubt, the Kawasaki Z1 made
motorcycle history when it hit the market back in 1972 as the most powerful mass-produced motorbike in the world
at the time. Today, nearly 45 years later, the Japanese muscle bike is one of the most sought-after classics on
the market. The global fan community is huge and Z1s in top condition now often sell for ten times what the bike
cost new originally.
Immortalizing legends on
postage stamps is a time-honored tradition. In keeping with this tradition, Z900.us, the globally leading online
shop for owners and fans of these unique big bikes, commissioned the German Postal Service to issue an exclusive
collector’s stamp depicting this inimitable motorcycle. The self-adhesive postage stamp with an inscribed value
of 70 cents for a standard letter shows a lovingly restored Kawasaki Z1 from 1973 in the arguably most famous
color combination of “candy orange / brown,” frequently also referred to as “Jaffa”.
As an homage to this bike’s
official model name “Z 900” derived from the displacement, only 900 folding collector’s sets featuring two Z1
stamps on the inside pages will be issued. Two stunning photos of this motorcycle adorn the front and back
covers of the set.
The rare postage stamp honoring
the Kawasaki Z1 is available exclusively online at...
The collector’s set holding two stamps sells for 10 euro
including shipping and handling.
In addition, the line-up of Z900.us accessories also includes long-sleeve shirts, hoodies,
sweaters, US-style parking and street signs and chronographs with various themes centered on the Kawasaki bikes
of the various Z model series.
