Purchased and transferred title in April 18, 013 ( bought in Mansfield, H)

Service/Modifications (extensive, o please ask questions if you plan to bid/purchase this bike)


  • · Forks completely rebuilt with new seals, ushings, ork oil and progressive springs 5/2014.
  • · Fork legs and intake tracts were polished aluminum. Along with the final differential being polished.
  • · Classic rear shocks & also piggyback shocks are included (shown in some of the pics)

Vacuum synchronized carbs and replaced intake manifold o-rings in 5/2014

Adjusted valve clearances in 5/2014

Wheels (lots of money in these two wheels):

  • · Wheels professionally built by Woody’s Wheel Works in Denver, olorado 3/2013. They stated that these wheels were some of the best looking wheels they have ever put together. They look fantastic. I have thought of pulling the wheels and selling the bike with another set of wheels since these are super nice.
  • · Front rim is Excel 18” x 3.5” wide. New bearings inside wheel.
  • · Rear rim is 18” x 4.25” wide. New bearings inside wheel.
  • · Stainless steel nipples and spokes.
  • · Rims and many engine parts were powdercoated Peeka Blue.
  • · New tubes installed.
  • · Steel valve stems

All new gaskets on every part that was powdercoated.


  • · Spiegler LSL braided brake lines Front and Rear.
  • · Speed Bleeders on front and rear calipers for easy brake bleeding.
  • · Brake pads are great. No sticking of brakes. Both brakes can be locked up if needed in emergency situations.
  • · Front and rear rotors have been professionally drilled to lighten weight and improve performance.
  • Tires:

    · Front is Avon Roadrider 110/80-18. Fills the front fender nicely.

    · Rear is Avon Roadrider 140/70-18 Works well in the rear.

    · Very good tread on both. NO issues whatsoever

    The bad stuff:

    1. The left side cover came off while I was riding to work ~10/15/2015 and I did not notice it when it happened. Thus, he bike is missing the left side cover. Shown in some of the pics with the left side cover, ut it is awol.

    2. The bike takes a few minutes to warm up and it “spits kind of like a camel” until it is warmed up. Runs fine, ut it takes a little to get warmed up. Smokes a little on start up when it is cold, ut clears up quickly.

    3. Common problem, he neutral light is stuck in the “on” position. The sensor is hard to clean, ut it can be done. All other lights work including back lighting on the fuel gauge & dash.

    4. Starter is not confidence inspiring, ut works every time. 1975-1977 Honda GL1000s have kick starters as factory and it is included. I will try and make a video of that process.

    5. Front fender has a ding on the back side. Shown in pictures.

    6. Lastly, his bike is ~38 years old and you should not expect “Kawasaki ZX14 like” refinement. This is from the 70s.

    There are extra parts that come with the bike. Have several spoke wheels, tc.

    Reason for selling: I own many other bikes. I am at a crossroads with this bike/project. I drove it ~150 miles the week of 11/6/2015 and it is time for me to move on. My next ambition would have been to pull the engine and tear it down to the frame to powdercoat the frame and other parts along with giving it a wet paint job to marry the powdercoating colors together. Since my job and responsibilities tell me I won’t get a chance to take that next step, t is time to sell this bike to someone who can continue to enjoy riding it. It is a great bike. Took it to Tennessee mountains and it works well there.

    Title is free, lear and in my possession.
