Default Custom Built 1989 Kawasaki KZ1000 (pics)

Here's a bike that you just don't find in this kind of shape any longer!! A 2 year frame off restoration was performed with this bike with a huge amount of custom parts fabricated for it including; 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 roughly 200 miles. 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 by Streetfighters USA with dual headlights and hidden LED turn signals and custom rear LED brake lights. I have receipts on rebuild and costs. I have spent thousands more on this bike getting it to where it is now then what I am asking for here. Economic times have hit hard and this is a great opportunity to make my loss a huge gain for you.

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 if no-one answers please leave a message. Asking price $5,500 OBO for this custom classic. If you would like any further info/photos please feel free to call me or e-mail me.

If photos do not show up in add please click on links below to see photos.

Thank you,
Steve

Being a life-long Kawasaki nut, after all that work, why do you want to sell it? Just park it in the garage for Sunday rides, and buy a used Busa or something to thrash around on.

Dig those single-pot front brake claipers. Classic.

Trust me I would love to hold on to it but with my OT going down the drain and with 2 kids doing all kinds of sports and what not I have to give something up. Trust me it is bumming the hell out of me just thinking about it.... all I know is someone is going to be totally psyched!!

I'll bet that 4 into 1 sounds pretty damn good.

Where are you located?

We'll see what my neighbors say if I go for that 2Bros kit for the Vee. I'm all in favor of loud bikes, IF they have a well tuned sound. A VTX with Longshots, for example, should be a felony. Same pipes on a Twinkie are cause for a community service award.
