Our RSBFS Scout Jim is at it again and once again he has sent us a beauty.
A 1989 ZX-7 survivor with only 5821 miles and it looks fantastic! Located in Greensboro, NC this 20 year old gem looks to be all stock down to the rear mud flap that is still in tact.
Most of these were either trashed, bashed or crashed on the track, but this one somehow escaped the torture.
The 89'/90' (H1/H2) ZX-7's weren't produced in the 7R Homologation versions like the 91'/92' (K1/K2), but the H1/H2 represent Kawasaki's first steps into the modern Replica Racer era. Kawasaki built a winner out of the box with the ZX-7 and in 1990 Doug Chandler won the AMA Super Bike Championship in only it's second year of production.
Just in case anyone wants to know... These babies produced a whopping 84hp at the rear wheel and weighed in at over 500lb wet. Now, that is not so good by today's standards, but wasn't too shabby back in the day.
This bike is a true collector's item. Completely factory and in pristine condition. Must see to believe!
The owner has a lofty price of $8,999.00 on Kawasaki's first year Super Bike. That is pretty steep considering the 7R I posted, that had everything going for it, only sold for $9,855.00. Now, I know there are some die hard ZX fans that follow our site so if your collection is missing the 89' give these guys a ring see what can be worked out.
