1975 Kawasaki KZ400 motorcycle. Bike runs good and I have been riding it for the past couple weeks. Good tires, really fun to ride, and really loud. In the past 250 miles the following modifications have been done: chopped front and rear fenders, Sparto tail/brake light, chopped pipes, clubman handlebars, replaced and cleaned carbs, headlight visor added, painted headlight bucket and side covers, stock seat was shaved and reupholstered, new NGK plugs and wires, new street bike grips, tank was sanded to steel and sprayed with acrylic enamel.

The bike does leak some oil like most KZs do and the front brake squeaks. The left side cover is missing but is easily replaced. I am selling it to buy a new cafe project bike. It is not a ground up build and has the usual rust and wear of a 30 year old bike. It has an electric start but it is not hooked up, kick start only, most of the time it will start right up with one kick. If its been sitting for a while you might have to hit it a couple times. Hopefully whoever buys the bike will have a working knowledge of vintage motorcycles because you will have to do regular maintenance and upkeep.

Its a fun bike to ride and cheaper than most anything else.

Email [email protected] for pics, i dont know how to put them on here.

Im asking $750 call Wes 434-509-3479 to see or ask questions. Thanks
