    Runs? Title?

    Then again, outside of the extended fork and apehangers, it looks pretty unmolested, so meh, I dunno...

    It's like a Machiavellian 4-volume trilogy based on Hamlet senza misura with an ego-maniacal downs syndrome kid reading from a Rube Goldeberg-esque kindle.

    that looks like a great deal even if the motor needs a rebuild.

    Not too much info on it, I've wanted one for a while. I don't want to rebuild the motor though, I have enough of those projects

    I'd be interested enough just to see the condition though

    although it is a 1972 not a 1971. Sucks about the chopper forks, those are one of the last years of the wild 500s so with those chopper forks I can't imagine how unrideable it is.

    I would look at it and check the serial number to make sure it isn't an H1C. H1Cs are parts bin clear outs and hella rare (about 1000 units) and if it is a C you need to own it.


    C's fall in between these frame and engine numbers according to kawasaki:
    Frame: KAF48664-49664
    Engine: KAE043902-045902
    but in reality it can go all the way up to 52100. The best way to tell a C is if it has CDI and an H1B/H1C vin number range after KAF48665. H1B's are the only year (1972) that have points instead of CDIs, but since the C was a parts clear out it got the CDI.
