Kawasaki Spectra Buying Advice

Motorcycle.com Staff
by Motorcycle.com Staff
I am looking at a 1982 Kawasaki Spectra 550. Excellent condition. Garaged. New tires, recently tuned. Runs good. Owner is asking 1700. I am a noob so I don't know if that is reasonable but it seems to be the market rate for started bikes right about now. He did agree to 1500 contingent upon advice.

My appologies if this ends up in the wrong forum.

That seems a little high, more like a grand for a perfect bike -- it is 23 years old, after all! But it's hard to say without seeing the actual bike. One good way is to search online classifieds and eBay, looking for similar bikes and what they sold for...

Any MOFOs out there have experience with old four-stroke Kwakers?
