    Kawasaki Kz750

    Hello all I am new to this cafe thing, well this is the first time i have built one. I came to the classic bikes from a 02 aprilia. So after lurking on this forum for about a year finally got around to getting a user name and last month purchased a new bike. Kawasaki kz750 twin think 79? not sure would have to check, picked up on the CL for 175.00 needed batt and gas, really! starts on second good kick or starter works, runs good and already removed the rear fender, Got to get rid of the horrible seat and putting on bars this weekend also removing the signals.

    What in the wide, wide world of sports is a-goin\' on here?

    $175 - Where's the rust? oil slick? mouse nest? bee hive? did you mean $1175 ?

    Did you get a title? If you did, well done, nice score. Even if you didn't id say you did alright.

    the guy i got it from was a friend from work who had his license susp for something dumb for a year and then was fired, guess he needed the money, and yes it had title but not registered for about a year.

    You a distant relative of Retro? Nice score!
    If you beat me all you have done is beaten an old fat guy. But If I beat you then you have been beaten by an old fat guy!

    Welcome.

    So that's what the stock pipes look like. If it is a 79 it is a KZ750B4

    Here's my KZ750 https://www.caferacer.net/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=9999

    It's been a while since I've worked on it.

    man, that is one hideous seat. nice score, though.

    there are some here who will describe this bike as the most horrible thing that's ever happened in motorcycle manufacturing, but it's hard to argue with the price tag here. parts should be cheap, too!

    man, that thing is ugly.... But it does have potential. And it's a 750 twin which has got to be a good place to start.

    Nice bike. Why would you take the turn signals off though? If you don't like the way they look, you can shorten the stalks.
    But I wouldn't throw away function/safety just for the sake of trying to get it to look like something else, which it won't by just doing that.
    Anyway, nice score, ride it!

    First off the seat is horrible but have reupholstered it and got it looking better not perfect though. And as far as the turn sigs go i am removing them and putting smaller one on not totally getting rid of them not that stupid will put more images online this weekend when i get to it and do something.
