Default 1989 Kawasaki KZ 1000 ~ Custom Restored - pics

Here’s a bike that you just don’t find in this kind of shape any longer!! Just completed a 2 year frame off restoration. Wheels glass beaded with 3 coats of clear. Brakes rebuilt, with custom drilled rotors and rebuilt calipers. Motor stripped, glass beaded and urethaned. Frame sandblasted and urethaned as well. Motor has 6K, speedo is new at 182. Carbs rebuilt, complete valve adjustment, and tune up. New Clutch, New Tires, All cables replaced. Custom racing Cambell Xpipe header system. All hand controls, and switches replaced Tank and tailpiece, side covers, stripped beaded and urethaned. Seat custom built by Tops Sebastian, FL. Fairing custom built Streetfighters USA with dual headlights and LED turn signals and custom rear LED brake lights. I have receipts on rebuild and costs.

As they say a picture is worth a thousand words... I feel these 4 speak volumes. I have more detail photos and can take photos of anything you would like. Please feel free to contact me at hydrasports212@yahoo.com or call me at 860.887.5976. Asking price $7,000 OBO for this custom classic.

Thank you,
Steve

That is a customization, not a restoration, and you can find them stock and in great shape for about $2500 bucks or less if you look around. 7 grand? Good Luck!

Hell I sold my '82 KZ750 with an 880cc kit, KH cams, 1100 valves, roofed intakes, big oil cooler and pop-up pistons (not to mention bored Mikini's with 450/210 jets) for $700.00.

And the damn thing is STILL running. In fact, there it goes now...whoosh...wirrr...clunk....

It's a gorgeous bike, but when you do a build like this, you'd better do it because you want that bike, not because you expect to get your money back out of it. It's just not old enough to have the "vintage" mystique yet; another decade it will.

It would be worth more if you'd have left it stock. At anyrate it's a nice bike but I'd say $3500~$4000 tops if you're lucky.

A blind man wouldn't give him that much for a bike like that around here.

I'm giving him the benifit of the doubt....... it's a nice looking bike, looks like a decent job. If it runs as good as it looks then maybe around here he might get what I said.

Minneapolis Craigslist is full of cheap '70s and '80s bikes. One could buy one and build it for a lot cheaper than $7k or even half that.
