Up for sale is my now complete 79’ KZ650 Cafe Racer project.
I’ve spent the last 2 or so years tinkering away on this bike making it into my vision of what the perfect cafe racer should be.
The bike has gone through a pretty extensive overhaul in both cosmetics and performance.
650cc DOHC 4 cylinder engine
KZ1000 carbs with pod filters
Custom stainless exhaust
MSD electronic ignition
Rear external reservoir shocks
Clubman style handle bars
Brand new shinko tires
KZ1000 front spoke wheel
Dual caliper front brakes from KZ1000
Fiberglass 1pc seat
LED tail light with integrated signals
“cafe” style headlight
Subtle LED front turn signals.
Corvette Red metallic paint job
Custom diamond stitch seat cushions (not shown)
Brand new front and rear sprockets
Brand new chain
All fresh fluids for this season
Bike has been re-wires and all electronics, battery and ignition are tucked under the seat.
I have spent countless hours making this bike look and ride exactly the way I wanted it to and now that it’s done I just don’t think I’ll do the bike justice in riding it enough. I have 2 other bikes right now and this is the least “practical”.
This bike is absolute blast to ride, it’s raw, it’s fast, it’s loud. People compliment me everytime I’m out on it. It has no gauges, no speedo, tach, nothing to distract you from the RIDE.
