1990 Kawasaki KR1-S 250, MINTY CLEAN BREATH!

Pass the "Grey Poupon", we're headin' over the pond to find this great piece of Kawasaki history. Starting in 1975 Kawasaki was a force to be recon with in the 250 GP class. Their inline twin with counter rotating cranks made some serious horsepower as Eddie Lawson proved by winning the AMA 250 GP Championship in '80 and '81. Winning 5 World 250 Championships Kawasaki chose to stop racing 250's in 1982 to focus on World Superbike machines, until a surprise visit at Daytona in 1992 with a "new" version of the KR1. This new version was heavily guarded as the new motor was allegedly an upside down fuel injected V-twin, finishing a 6th place while the other bike DNF'd, Kawasaki was never seen at a 250 race again. Located in West Yorkshire England, here is a brilliant example of their street going version, it is just plain smashing. Click here for the jump.

The ad reads:

Black and green, totaly standard and original 1990 KR1s. Great condition and fantastic performance. No known problems. Grab one before the prices start to climb like the other classic strokers are doing. £3299 ovno.Will come with 12 months mot

.

With 9000 miles this bike looks the part. At under 300 lbs these were one of the lightest 250's on the market and made 55 rear wheel horsepower from an inline twin. So at about $5500 (US) I think the bikes a steal, except one small issue, getting into the US. If the laws have remained the same you can bring in anything you want if its 25 years old with no problem, if not which is the case here, then Customs may ask you for DOT/EPA paperwork for this bike which it doesn't have. This can still be a little "hit or miss", it's worth a call to your local Customs broker and see what he says. Anyway this bike is still the dogs bollocks, tell him you found it here at RSBFS.com!

1975 Kawasaki 500 H1F 2 Stroke Cafe Racer For Sale

Located in Newport Beach, California, Tony's 1975 Kawasaki H1F 500 is our latest featured listing. With only 7700 miles and tasteful cafe racer upgrades, this is one sharp looking classic sportbike!

Update: Now Sold!

1975 Kawasaki H1F 500 For Sale

Here is what the owner tells us about the bike

Up for sale is the last and best year of Kawasaki two stroke era. A 1975 MACH 500 H1F with only 7700 miles. A true rare blast from the past!

The bike has been upgraded with alloy wheels from a KZ series bike with dual disc added upfront and lower handlebars for a café racer look. I have the orig handlebars, wheels and factory pipes to restore the bike to original condition if you like the stock look better.

The bike has a new $750 paint job which matches orig color scheme and new tires, seat, battery, grips, levers etc. The triple carbs have been rebuilt and synchro from pro mechanic shop Mach 1 in Costa Mesa, CA. Over $6k invested in this bike!

The bike has a nice set of custom "Bill Wirges" expansion chambers who was the premier pipe tuner back in the day.. These pipes are very hard to find and are worth $600-$1200 alone. They can be sold separately if someone really wants them.

The bike has a clear title with matching numbers. Starts first or second kick and idles smooth. Oil injection works and the bike runs great!

Contact Tony by email at tony.hhh@gmail.com or 949-351-6752 for more photos.

And here is a little video of Tony's machine breathing through those Bill Wirges expansion chambers:

The Kawasaki 500 was truly the king of the pack in it's day with 60hp and a 12.8 second quarter mile that left it's competition in the dust. This looks like a great opportunity to get your hands on a really good looking and well upgraded example for only $4750.

Good luck with the sale Tony!

1989 Kawasaki ZX-7 H1 Ninja Completely Original, Signed By Doug Chandler & Scott Russell

A completely original '89 ZX-7 signed by Doug Chandler and Scott Russell!  Located in Wasilla, Alaska is possibly a one owner 1989 ZX-7 with very low miles.  Pretty much everything on this bike is speculative as they only definitive information is gained from the photos.  The seller does state that he has owned this bike for twenty-one years, making possible that he is the original owner.  The seller does state that this bike is showroom perfect and that the tank has been signed by Doug Chandler and Scott Russell.  Unfortunately, the seller makes no mention of current mileage but this bike does look to be completely original--with a lime green windscreen which could almost be considers stock for the early '90's--with either low miles or a very careful owner.  These bike's didn't come signed by the boys so it's very cool especially if you're only planning on showing this bike.  The asking price of $4,000 is a bit higher than most other '89 ZX-7's but, I doubt any of them come anywhere close to this bike.  The seller may have time on his side getting things together as this bike is located in the frigid--and far--north making it a long trip from anywhere but Anchorage.  This is the first year for the ZX-7, it replaced the GPX750 with a new frame and uprated motor.  It wasn't the most radical 750 out at the time as Kawasaki chose to sell a very good road bike that could be transformed into a race bike not the other way around.  Many of these bikes were dropped, modified, or raced during their short lives so it's refreshing to see a very nice ZX-7 Ninja alive and well.  See this bike on Craigslist here.  Note:  The ad only lists a phone number for contact so, please be mindful of timezones.

1991 KAWASAKI ZX7R, 7900 MILES, ORIGINAL !

1991 Kawasaki ZX-7R with 7900 miles and is still sporting the original rubber! 

The year 1991 and Rob Muzzy was "The Man" and Scott Russell (still can't understand a word  that guy says) was a force to be recon with if you were a Kawasaki nut.  It's a bit sad to see AMA these days, (okay let me be honest, it Blows), in the 90's it just seemed cooler and more people were involved. I do miss seeing the big Fast by Ferracci rig and their beautiful set up, oh well things change. These ZX7R's come up for sale every now and then but it's hard to find a real clean original one. The owner even states it has the original tires (yikes) but if everything checks out, the bikes a winner in my opinion.  Listed on Craig's List for $5500 or B.O. and located in Winter Haven Florida.

Go to the Craig's List ad   here

 

Ad reads:

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR with only 762 miles!

1996 Kawasaki ZX-7RR N1 with only 762 miles and 100% stock!

Located in Marrero, LA is this pristine 7RR N1 Homologation Superbike. Since I started writing for RSBFS.com I've mentioned several times that my two favorite bikes are N1's and FZR400 's. The N1's are the pinnacle for me and the 400 are a very, very distant second place. I've been in love with ZX7's all my sportbike life, but have yet to own one. I've come very close to buying one, but have never pulled the trigger. When Les sent this one in today I was beside myself trying to decide whether I should post it or contact the seller and ask "what's it going to take to put that in my garage?" But, since I have a better half, I decided to run it by her and see what the reaction would be. Not much to my surprise, there was a lot of mumbling, a few choice words about me and my bikes, I also heard something about diamonds, but couldn't quite make it out. Needless to say, I'm posting it instead of contacting the seller.

I'm guessing most people would agree, even if you aren't a Kawasaki fan, that the 7RR's have something about them that says 'I'm fast'. The design is aggressive and it has a certain flare about it that no other bike, in my opinion, has. These came from the factory with adjustable swing arms, adjustable steering head and 41mm flatslide carbs. The N1's didn't get the luxury of the aluminum gas tank like the previous years, but as mentioned did have more adjustable parts which included better suspension. If you are unfamiliar with Team Green Machines here are a few of my favorite websites that talk extensively about the 7R/7RR's. First up is the evolution of Kawasaki's Homologation Supebike. Next up is one of my favorite 'eye candy' sites regarding my favorite Superbike.

The seller didn't put many pictures up on the auction so you'll have to contact him should you be interested in seeing more.

Quotes from the auction:

SUPER RARE!!!!! 1996 KAWASAKI ZX7RR IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH ONLY 762 MILES!!!! BEAUTIFUL !!!!!!!! EVERTHING IS ORIGINAL FACTORY

Okay, so not many pictures and not much to say, but in all actuality what can he say other than "Sweet and being sold as new!" I have to believe if I didn't just buy another 400 I'd be in the ring, but as it sits I'm out on this one. It is being offered with a starting bid of $8,000.00 and I have to believe the reserve is somewhere around $10,000.00. Hopefully, this one will be bought and enjoyed or put in a museum for everyone to enjoy.

Cheers!

Phil’s 1991 Kawasaki ZXR750R for sale

Here's my own personal 1991 Kawasaki ZXR750R homologation special for sale. I bought it initially with the intention of restoring to it's former glory, but with our new baby daughter arriving in May, it's probably not the best time to take on such a project, so would prefer to see the bike to go a new owner who would take good care of it.

 

The ZXR750R is the homologation special of the standard ZXR750, with Keihin flatslide carbs, close ratio gear box, aluminum gas tank, single seat (the previous owner added rear pegs and a passenger 'pad') and even a slipper clutch (called a 'Back Torque Limiter' - bet you didn't know that!)  There's a wealth of excellent ZXR750R info on Andy's ZXR750R site. This specific sample has 19,493 km on the clock bike has new fork sliders plus Racetech gold valve internals, Ohlins rear shock, Akrapovic header with Micron carbon exhaust, and new Michelin tires.  Cosmetically it's a bit ratty and could do with some restoration (or you could get some race bodywork from Airtech and turn this into an awesome 90s track bike!), but then again I'm only asking for $2000 or best offer. There is a slight catch though - the bike is located in Hong Kong.

In any case, please allow me to share my vision of what I had planned for this ZXR750R - I've always had a thing for endurance racers (as in the bikes, not the riders!). Inspired by the original endurance racing ZXR-7 (see attached photos below), I wanted to restore the "Zed" with a complete strip down, and rebuild it with completely new body work and paint it up as a ZXR-7 endurance replica.  Actually, a limited number of ZXR750R were available in the red/white/green endurance colour in the UK back when:

And just for reference, here's one of the original ZXR-7 race bikes for sale. Even more info on the  ZXR-7 and older ZXRs in general, click HERE, HERE and HERE.

So if you're in the market for a Homologation special on the cheap, cheap hit Phil up and help him buy some diapers
