I am selling my one of a kind 1979 Kawasaki KZ1000 Pro Street style chopper.This bike has been extremely good to me and was my daily rider for several years. It is very reliable and very fast. It has approximately 24000 miles on the engine. The previous owner told me that he had a Wisco 1075 big bore kit installed when the bike had about 10k miles on it but I never opened the motor to confirm.The new speedometer shows 106 miles (might go up a few). The last oil change was done at the 8 mile mark.This bike has a clear Florida title in my name.It was my daily rider for almost five years but I bought a new bike and instead of neglecting it I figured I would give someone else a chance to appreciate it.Most of the custom work has been done in the last two years and there are a lot of new parts on this bike.Below is a list of everything (that I can remember) that I have changed on this bike.
