Kawasaki Other description

I purchased this bike in 2009 for my then 17 year old son.  It was in sad shape and was last plated in 1982.  It had 3200 miles on it.  I bought it on a bill of sale and obtained a clear Indiana title through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.  The frame, swing arm, side and center stand, steering head, and other associated parts were power coated.  Everything rusted was either replaced, cleaned up, or painted.  The cables, tires and tubes, grips, battery, air cleaner, oil and filter, bulbs, headlight bucket, carburetor spigots, and helmet lock were purchased new.  The seat was recovered. The inside of the tank was coated.  The carbs were rebuilt several times and have new diaphragms. The mufflers are original and are solid.  I struggled with a lean condition on the right cylinder that no one could resolve and the bike sat until early this year when I took the bike to a shop that figured out the issue.  It now runs perfect ans has another new battery.  My son is no longer interested and I have other motorcycles that I ride.  It is probably as close to a new '78 Kaw 400 that you can find.  Its time for it to have a new home.  It is for sale and if I get an offer I can't refuse its gone.  Feel free to call with any questions on (765) 744-5518.  Please leave a message if I don't answer.  You can also contact me through ebay.
