This 1973/74 TZ is a stunning restoration performed by Montreal, Canada-based Bimota restoration specialist Francois Pelletier. Good enough to have fooled more than a few TZ aficionados into the belief that it was as delivered by the factory. Multi-time Superbike Champion and purveyor of fine performance exhausts, Lang Hindle bought this machine new back in the day - and then with a conflict arising from his contract with Kawasaki, he rode it in only one event in Quebec, Canada under an assumed name. He sold it to a local rider and it promptly fell off everyone's radar.About 10 years ago, Francois found in rural Quebec, Canada. Years of storage in a less than ideal environment had taken a toll and the bike underwent a complete and painstaking restoration. On tear-down, it became apparent that the bike had very little time on it, so the bulk of the restoration work was cosmetic in nature.
