You might try calling color rite, they don't do bikes that old, but they might get asked the question enough to send you in the right direction.

Paintworkz...they have paint that will match the original color. In 1975 the Z1-B came in Blue, Green and Red. Not cheap though, no automotive paint is today. To get the original color you need a silver base coat (matallic) then the urethane top coat.

What I have done is to take the tank, tail feathers, and side panels to a shop that specializes in restoring Classic Japanese motorcycles, it comes out looking like new. The whole job will cost 'ya about $1500 when done (around here prices - and everything is expensive here)

There are some awesome photos of restored Z-1's on the page, here's a sample:
