Hard to find 1978 Kawasaki Z1R, Kawasaki's entry into the Superbike war of 1978. Good running, well kept bike. Bike was painted black sometime in the 1980's and the stripe kit to duplicate the 1980 Z1R paint job was added later. There are small nicks and dings but is still shiny and presentable. Seat is cover is a very nice newer duplicate. Exhaust is a Vance and Hines 4 into 1 that's a few years old and in very good condition. Not real loud but has a nice sound. Bike runs good, tank is clean inside and it has no oil or gas leaks. Tires are older but serviceable. Original kickstarter lever that belongs under the seat is gone and stock windshield was replaced 2 years ago. Have the little chrome cover that goes over the seat lock but the spring is missing. Fresh oil change and new battery. Everything works but the fuel gauge. Overall a good rider quality bike or a good candidate for full restoration.

It has been brought to my attention that the tachometer may not be original. That could be the case. There could be other items replaced, repaired or missing too as this is a 38 year old bike that I have only owned a short time. This is not being advertised as a completely original or pristine bike.
This CL77 was purchased as part of a lot and was just a frame and motor with a sing arm, one rear shock and tool box.. I have done a lot of the hard work for you already. Nice winter project. I have added (installed) the triple tree.
I recently purchased a great starting and running Honda 550 that was moded by someone at some point in time. I believe they were going for the "flat tracker" look. The bike only has 19,811 miles on it which is very low for a Honda motor and very low for a bike of this vintage.
For sale here we have a stunning example of pre-WWII American motorcycle history. Indian described their 4 Cyl model as "The World's Most Beautiful Motorcycle." 1 look at this machine proves it. This bike was painstakingly restored and lovingly ridden for many years by my grandfather in Northern Ohio.
