1978 Kawasaki KZ650B Unregistered US Import Classic Running Restoration Project - Picture 1 of 12

1978 Kawasaki KZ650B Unregistered US Import 


As you can see this bike has a few parts missing – Mirrors, ignition key, exhaust heat shields, airbox rubbers & battery being the most obvious. It has stood a while, so the paintwork is faded, master cylinder is not working, tank is a bit mucky inside & while the chrome all looks presentable – much of it is pitted. Sadly the bike has had a tumble on the r/h side scuffing the headlight rim, exhaust & rear indicator.

But now for the good news………This is the actual bike you are bidding on – Not library pictures. The wheels look straight with fairly clean chrome rims, good hubs & brake plate. Forks & yokes look straight with useable chrome. Mudguards are both solid. Taillight assy is solid as are the headlight & hangers. Instruments & switches look ok but idiot lights are held together with black tape. Carburettors are free sliding off the twist grip. Paintwork is faded but solid, fuel tank is in need of a good flush clean inside. Exhausts are original & appear to be solid. Seat base is in good condition throughout. Chain guard is tidy as is the grab rail. The engine is cosmetically quite clean, it turns over nicely off the kick starter – sounds/feels great & has compression BUT BEST OF ALL when we hooked it up to a good battery & fed fresh fuel to the carburettors, gave it a few prods it fires, starts, runs & revs but it is obvious the carbs need attention.
