Description

Rare 1982 Kawasaki AR80-A1 Motorcycle / Two 2 Stroke Cafe Street Racer / AR50 Product DescriptionThis bike DOES NOT have a title.  I have documentation showing I purchased it from an estate auction.  I know a title can be applied for but every state has different requirements so I recommend calling your local tag office if this is a concern. This rare predecessor to the Kawasaki Ninja was only sold in the US for 1 year and is a very hard to find bike.  This bike was bought and ridden for only a few years before it was stored away for the last 27 years in the original owner's basement.  (see license plate) Every part is there including the original tool kit under the seat.  The bike should be broken down. inspected. and rebuilt to ensure a safe ride.  The tank has a good amount of rust and should probably be replaced but it does not have any dents.  The front wheel (see photos) is a bit cocked to one side but after a thorough inspection it does not appear to be due to a bent part.  I believe it is due to the fork brackets being lose on the front suspension and I am sure is an easy fix. I bet the motor would fire up nicely after addressing the fuel tank.  When I checked the oil I was amazed to find it golden as if the it was just serviced yesterday.  Also. when I removed the airbox cover I ran my finger through the neck leading to the carburetor and found not one sign of debris.  My guess is that it had a nicely maintained 2164 miles before it was parked.  It's amazing that the sticker is still on the tach explaining how to properly break in a new bike. The bike is worth more than $1500 for the parts alone an a set of AR80/50 Enkie wheels recently sold on ebay for $400 and others on the web are going for far more.  I could part it out and do pretty well but I feel it would be a tragedy to part out such a complete example of a rare motorcycle. Shipping: Freight is an additional cost and is not included in final bid price.  I can arrange shipping domestically in the US and can get a quote for serious buyers.  The bike will ship from Cumming. GA (30040) and I estimate it to cost between $150 to $400 depending on what part of the country.  I ship a fair amount of LTL so I am familiar with the process.  The bike will be shipped strapped to an oversized pallet and you must be available to receive (they will not leave it on your doorstep).  A truck with a liftgate can be arranged if needed but they usually charge more for the service.  You are always welcome to pick up the bike if you are in the Atlanta area. Overseas buyers must arrange for shipment themselves as we are not familiar with the customs process for a vehicle entering a country. Payment: Payment can be made with cash. wire. or paypal for a domestic purchase.  An international purchase must be made with a bank wire. inkfrog terapeak
