Kawasaki Other description

im listing a bike i thought i wouldnt get rid of,my daughter had an accident in my challenger and this hopefully will cover some work to be done on it,but i have taken the time to disassemble it,have the frame powder coated,swingarm,some motor pieces,the sprocket and the wheels,
the bike has a bonded title because it seems like everyone loses their titles in texas,no this is not a barn find either,
i bought this bike from a kawasaki mechanic in corpus christi texas,and went from there,i think he rebuilt the motor in the bike before i got it,because he had it all at the shop he worked in and motor was out of it and was very nicely done,
Inever got the carbs or airbox i was promised or any fuel injection parts or the wiring for the bike,however i bought a spare gpz 1100 and used the front end totally,and the speedometer unit its triple clamps and bars as well as its brakes in the front after that was completed the wiring was removed from the 83 gpz and it was used on the bike because i wanted the whole front end and switches and any controls all to match because after all that was assembled,i took my old turbo kit from an old z1r i had and added it onto the engine and have ridden it as a town bike to just cruise because at 57 i had to slow down,.
The carb i chose to use was an s&s super E bought and jetted for a stock gpz engine from a man who builds funny bikes,Hhe did a very good job,and i do not use a choke on this bike when starting it,simply turn on fuel,and then pump it 4 times then hit start,if it doesnt start i try same process again,bike runs nice and does start up which is better now that i used a very good new carb you can buy parts for instead of the old bendix
bike has new castrol 20w50 oil in it and wix filter since ive finished what i was doing on bike ive made short rides around town and its real smooth,i dont like to hot rod around no more,too many cops,just like working and building up bikes to look nice
A dyna ignition was added to the bike and hotter coils was painted green angels road color real close to kawasaki lime green,and the stripes were painted on its the only way to go,ONLY THING ABOUT THE seat is i never located the seat latch in the box of spare parts the seat was an original eddie lawson replicaseat i bought for 300.00 from a friend on face book in the gpz 1100 group that had some elr bikes 
shocks were close to 500.00 on rear end,and both tires were put on new as well,chain came from him also was a new low mile chain too,i recently took out my blinkers i had for this bike and mounted the rear 2 and front 2 are here also,i think i may have put the front blinkers on the rear,not sure,all the hookups are on the harness and marked also,and bike does not have the rear grab rail,a man named mike on facebook isstarting to reproduce them
The one thing i havent done from when i put the motor in bike was i either dropped one of the exhaust gaskets when hooking up the log pipe on motor or didnt tighten good enough or thgey leak,but i did get abrand new set to put on when i get around to it,bike soundsexactly like the silver bike that is a z1r on you tube,only i never turned up idle on it yet cause i dont want to stop at a light and have bike revving up,
Since ive last took pictures on this bike i had the shorty pipe on the bike but that blowsexhaust on the knee pretty good so i found one of my old atp long pipes and put it on the bike,i have pictures in my phone of that when i had it on bike,
it just looks neater with the short banana pipe,,but sounds like the old z1r with the long one,
wheels are very nice,the inner spokes were powder coated gold,and outer edges of rim were left the aluminum color,,
for more pictures and nicer ones ihave some more in my phone and can take more aswell,text me at 361-562-1720
the old mr turbo guage needs new glycerine put in it because i guess from sitting it evaporated
one front universal fairing bracket is still off because mechanic lost it but has returned it to me
fuel tank has a new pingle petcock,and net fuel pump to feed the carb also and new battery in bike,i just dont ride like i used to ,and still have my mint red 82 b2 gpz 1100 if i ever take it out,it may be going also just not sure yet on what all is in store for my challenger,thanks for the time gentlemen but i try to let people know what i have done to this bike,i got about 8 bikes total,and cant ride them all and am passing on a nice machine to new buyer,it would probably cost you about 10,000.00 to build this bike if you started to do this to your bike also in case you were looking for the eddie lawson look or 1100r look or a neat gpz b2
the reason the decal says 1100 r is because its all i thought would look nice on the bike since i didnt have the gpz1100 emblems for the side covers and i wanted a good looking decal as well,thanks any questions text me for more pictures 361-562=1720 thanks
