And now for something completely different…


Those of you who read the blog regularly might remember my recent post about the billions and billions of Honda motorcycles that seem to end up on the site. Yes, I am a whiner, it’s true. And then comes along this… I’ll call it a cafe racer. While maybe not a cafe racer in the classic sense of the word, this 1977 Kawasaki KZ750 definitely has many cafe styling cues. Maybe it is more of a Euro street fighter with clip-ons. Regardless, the seller has done some cool stuff to a bike that doesn’t see much love from the cafe crowd.

Here’s a list of the things the owner has done to the bike (I deleted many, many exclamation marks when I cut-and-pasted the list):

    Dyna electronic ignition
    Accel Super Coils and Plug Wires
    Vance & Hines 4-1Exhaust
    Pod Filters
    Fresh top end
    Carbs Rejetted
    Ness Batwing Mirrors
    Italian Custom clip on handlebars
    Rearset foot controls
    New Tires Front and rear 16”
    Custom Seat
    Drag Specialties tach (CR – check out where the builder put it!)
    Custom wiring harness
    Almost all powder coated, not painted

I have to give the guy credit. This is a unique bike with which the builder has followed a unique vision. I’ll leave you with this quote from the eBay listing: “This bike is fast and very eye catching. I guarantee no one else will have a bike like this one.” Huzzah, I say!!!
