1992 Kawasaki KR1-S *still in the crate* for sale-
Location: Laredo, TX - in a crate
Mileage: Less than 1
Price: Step right up and place your bid
This bike has been storaged, on purpose, in it´s original crate for 19 years now. It was bought from Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI-Japan) on August 1992; which was the very last production batchs for this model.
It is the "pearl" on my personal 2 stroke bikes collection, I decided that is the time to pass it on to some other collector in the world.
And there you have it- A brand new 19 year old Rare Sport Bike For Sale.
These are definitely the rarest of the rare 2 strokes in the US and they rank at the top of the rarest 2 strokes in the world. Some 2 strokes are difficult to find, some are hard to find, some are damn near impossible to find, but a brand new, still in the box KR1-S might come around as often as Halley's Comet.
I've already talked to a few qualified collectors regarding this particular machine and all but one said they'd love to have it. I also talked to a few skeptics who couldn't get past not being able to see it. I personally have no doubt that it's in there and preserved perfectly. Since it's been in a box and protected from the light I'm going to say the rubber bits should be in pretty good shape as well.
The seller has put some pretty tough restrictions on the on the sale of the bike. I totally understand the reasons why and can't say I blame him one bit. They also have a stellar rating of 100% with 695 transactions within the ebay community so you should find a little reassurance in those numbers.
There is a $200 USD fee for product to be picked up locally. Delivery is to be made within 15 days of bids end, depending on buyer-seller communication and arrangements.
Please DO NOT ASK to open the crate, I will not be willing to do so unless person interested is willing to pay a $3,000 USD non refundable fee.
I'm a little confused as to why he would charge you if you wanted to pick it up. I personally would not move this bike any other way.
What about you- what would you do with this bike?
-Would you leave it in the box?
-Open it and offer it to Barber for display?
-Do you think there's another one like it in the world?
-Would you buy the box and not peek inside of it?
Any guess on what it's going to take to put it in your collection?
Here's what it might sound like if you win and open the box:
