It's that time of year when a man needs something to tinker with in the garage & what finner than a classic Kawasaki Z650.


This iconic sports legend that is the 1980 Kawasaki KZ650B4 has recently been imported from North America where it has spent all its life ?€“ the air is thin and the climate is far kinder to machinery than ours. This and the fact it's only showing 13664 miles and has been in dry storage for the last umpteen years have helped maintain its boyish good looks.

PLEASE CHECKOUT THE PICTURES. As you can see this bike is very nearly complete missing just the Mirrors. R/h side panel & Battery. The bike has obviously stood a while so the tyres & seat cover are perished. Sadly the rear indicator lenses are broken.

BUT NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS. The bike is every bit as solid as it looks here. The wheels are straight with nice clean chrome rims. good hubs. brake plate. disc. caliper & working master cylinder. Forks & yokes look straight with good chrome. Mudguards are both solid & very tidy. Tail light assy is good as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look great. Fuel tank isquite clean inside. Exhaust system is original & solid. Seat base is in very good condition throughout. Chain guard is very tidy. Shox are damping fine. The engine is cosmetically very clean. when we hooked it up to a good battery & fed it a few squirts of ether it starts & runs but the carbs do need attention.

If you require any further information please give us a call or better still visit our showroom and have a good look over the bike for yourself ?€“ after all who are you going to believe me or your own eyes?
