This item was relisted, I had it in the wrong category on the initial listing.
1980 KAWASAKI KZ1000 D-3 Z1R 20,319 MILES (Subject to change bike is periodically ridden) Three mods on the bike 1st on the rear blinkers, can easily be restored due to the installation of hard luggage over the years. 2nd is the addition of a solid state secondary ignition, 3rd is an after market ignition switch. Top end, pistons, rings, and a cylinder head refurbish 2009. bike uses little to no oil in between changes. Factory self canceling turn signal system in working order. The only real flaw with the bike is on the fuel tank finish, front RH side. I have a new factory NOS fuel tank in Ebony (pristine cond.) that will be included with the sale of the bike. Spare fuel tank very clean inside. Existing tank lined with liner (not pour 15) and has been in use for many years. Bike starts right up and idles. fuel economy within original specs, around 35MPG> Have not had to touch the plugs in years. Tires are Michelin Pilot Active, in great shape.
Seat skin is not original but is a gel lined vintage looking Cavalcade seat. A very comfortable addition. bike does not have the tool kit, but it does have the period correct owners manual and manual cover. Bike has the factory center stand, and under-seat kick starter.
Other items refurbished or replaced over the years, Carburetors. Brakes initially overhauled, then periodically flushed around every 24 months. I located and added the Factory airbox and Exhaust system. New Deka Battery (USA made) replaced Spring 2020. Oil changed at 2,000 miles. X-ring chain and sprockets, If I recall, I have the factory gearing on the sprockets. I replaced the ignition switch, so there are two keys with the bike. I will have to locate, but I do have the factory ignition switch, I was troubleshooting a past problem, and I do not think there is an issue with the O.E. switch. The original primary ignition coils were replaced with factory Kawasaki coils. Fork seals are not leaking and are in good condition.
I would like to mention again that this bike comes with an NOS never before used fuel tank. Due to the paint lifting on the current tank, I feel the buyer will be best served with this rare and almost never to be found item in this condition. So bid accordingly,
Over the years, I have taken this bike on out of town trips as far as 300 miles, but most are local rides to keep the rust out of the engine and fuel system. It's ridden about once to twice a month
The only other flaw that I can mention is related to the windscreen, there are slight scratches that would easily buff out with the right compound. There is a small crack on the rear inner fender under the seat.
There are no warranties written or implied with this motorcycle.

At Auction close a $500.00 deposit is required, with full payment within 3 business days after the auction closes. I have always been a purchaser on iQQmoto and have a 100% record in buying. This is my first listing as a seller, the bike is real and I am not interested in putting up with any flakes or non performers.
Reason for selling, I have 7 motorcycles and it is time to thin the heard, this according to the boss :)
For the next curator, Thank you for bidding, someone will be getting a great bike.
