Okay, so you'll have to use your imagination a little to get past the bodywork not being present. But, if you can this appears to be a super clean, low mileage 7R. As far as my searches can tell the M1 and M2's might be the rarest zx7's of them all. RSBFS has never posted a M1 or M2 and when you compare 0 to all of the K1, K2 and N1's that we see that makes these pretty darn elusive. I don't have the answer as to why these are never available, but if someone else does please enlighten me.
The M1 and M2's sport the aluminum gas tanks, Flatslide carbs, close ration transmission, adjustable swing arm and fully adjustable suspension on both ends. Like most homologation superbikes, they don't make very good real world, daily rides because 1st gear is too tall. But, once you get them rolling they are a hoot and the close ratio transmission keeps you right in the meat of the power band at all times.
I just checked and it appears Kawasaki still offers all of the OEM body work to put this one back together to spec, but at an enormous cost. I guess if you factor in $500 for shipping to your door, about $2,500 for new bodywork, windscreen, signals and exhaust canister you'd be sitting on a great bike for any collection. When you add it all up it puts you right in the mix for what these usually go for with low miles and good condition.
