I bought this bike last summer, nd barely rode it. I had shoulder surgery in the Fall which has made this bike become a garage ornament.
This one of a kind 1979 Kawasaki KZ1000 Pro Street style chopper is very reliable and fast. The engine has approximately 24000 miles on it. The original owner told the builder that he had a Wisco 1075 big bore kit installed when it was at 10k miles, ut the motor was never opened to confirm.
The new speedometer currently shows 156 miles and the last oil change was done at the 8 mile mark.
This bike gets a lot of attention and has even won a 1st place trophy for best metric motorcycle at the Brandon Harley-Davidson/Scooter's bike show in Tampa.
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 what the builder changed on this bike. Most of the parts were new at the time of installation and have very few miles on them. This is a quality build, nd was not cheap.
