Kawasaki 1979 KZ650 - $175 (Cameron Park)

12345678910

1979 Kawasaki KZ650

condition: fair
fuel: gas
title status: missing
transmission: manual

Update: If you purchase this bike before November 6th I will accept a $175 offer. I need room for other things.

I bought this to do a full breakdown and custom café bike conversion (and I still may). My only hesitation to keeping it is the space that it is taking up and my limited time for projects going on. My plan was to put on some 750 cylinders (the 1979-83+ 750 is just a bored out 650) and do a full engine rebuild including having the engine cases polished out. The cost for new valves, bearings, pistons and machining will run about $700 and I planned on putting on some brand new flat slide carbs that would run a little more than that.

The minor metal fabrication I can do myself. The hubs I planned on powder coating and re-lacing myself for that custom look. In total someone that knows what they are doing can build a show quality bike for less than $2,500 from this bike. I may still do it I loved this bike as well as the Kawasaki 650SR as a teenager and eventually bought the GPZ that was a direct sport bike evolution of this bike.
