Very low mileage (2930 miles) 1983 KZ1000R ELR. This is for all intents and purposes a one owner bike with documentation to back up. I purchased this bike from estate of the original owner. Bike was titled in his nephew's name for title transfer purposes only. I received the bike in non running condition because of a faulty fuel tank (rust holes). Upon purchase I went about getting the bike into running condition. An OEM '83 KZ1000R fuel tank was sourced as well as a petcock. The petcock is the only non OEM part on the bike as far as I can tell. Carbs were cleaned and she fired right up. Engine sounds great like a 2930 mile bike should. No leaks. I believe it is still on the original tires (both which leak and are in rough shape will need to be replaced). I have included a walk around/start up video. Please take a look at it and the included pics. I have tried very hard to point out all of the flaws on the bike. This would be a great candidate to either restore or replace tires/chain and ride like she is. The original tank will be included. I think it can definitely still be saved but will require the help of a skilled professional. All problems are on bottom of tank. No dents. The replacement tank has a slightly different blue in the stripe than the rest of bike. I have seen many other ELR's with this color of blue and believe it to be OEM paint but cannot be certain. You can see original kawasaki box it came in which will be included as well. Please examine pics/video carefully and do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Check my feedback and bid with confidence.

So I was asked where the Kerker sticker was on the tank. I have the original sticker ready to be applied. I would post a pic but I am at the 24 pic limit and can't change per ebay rules. Rest assured I have it and it will be included with sale.
