Kawasaki Other description
I have for sale the iconic 1977 KZ1000 bike that is very collectible. This is the first year the 1000 was offered.
This bike has had only 2 owners. My friend bought it brand new the year it was released, which he had up until a few years ago. He took very good care of it and was always stored in the winter. He did not ride it about 12 years up till I got, his health was not good. So when I purchased from him I had to do a little work to get running, but not much.
The carb gaskets and O-rings have been replaced, petcock O-rings and seals, throttle cable and tachometer cable all replaced. One coil has been changed out. The rear tire is new, the front tire looks like is in good condition so I have never replaced. The bike runs great, I ride to work often, take kids for rides once in awhile, always starts and is reliable. Is definitely a head turner. The only issue is with the turning signals, when the throttle is pulled back the signals are still and not blinking, but when I shift and let off the throttle they blink fine. I have not had time to dig into this to figure out. The bike could probably use a tune up, I have never taken in to sync carbs or anything else, was kind of a project for me and the bike runs good so never took in. I am not really wanting to get rid of but trying to raise money for a truck.
I believe most of the bike is original, no air pods or other modifications, exhaust is original. I am not sure about the sissy bar. It does come off and go on in about 10 minutes and is good for some luggage or if you have passengers. I believe he told me the seat was an upgrade, which is comfortable and in really good condition. It comes with the tool kit as seen in pictures. There is a scratch on the side of the tank, not real noticeable. I really like the aged color of the tank though, looks good. Also some of the paint is off the handle bar by the brake fluid reservoir, the previous owner accidentally spilled a little fluid on. Other than that for being 40 years old is a sweet bike. With a good polishing could be a show bike for sure.
I am trying to cover as many details as I can but please feel free to send me a message about anything and I will be glad to answer.
Vin # - KZT00A-505152
Engine # - KZT00AE020298

This motorcycle will have to be picked up, I live in the Southwest corner of Michigan. Once picked up could go for a nice ride along Lake Michigan. Would like to receive full payment within 2 weeks of purchase. Will take a Bank Check or Cash would be preferred of course.
Thanks for looking, hope this bike goes to someone who can appreciate a quality bike.

Michael Dunlop captured his second victory in the 2013 Isle of Man TT, winning the first Supersport race a day after doing the same in the Superbike race. But it was a different Dunlop that led early on the first lap. Older brother William Dunlop on the Milwaukee Yamaha R6 had the fastest time through Glen Helen, between the ninth and tenth milestones of the Isle of Man’s Mountain course.Mon, 09 Jan 2012 00:00:00 -0800
