Looks the Part – 1999 Kawasaki ZRX-1100 Eddie Lawson Commemorative

Team Green had their own take on the retro revolution, and offered a look back to the early 1980’s AMA championships.  Despite the resemblance, the ZRX1100 was thoroughly up to date for the mission.  Today’s has lower mileage, and looks excellent even in the bright sun.

1999 Kawasaki ZRX-1100 for sale on eBay

Kawasaki designers wanted to keep as many elements of the ELR as possible, and saved the bikini fairing, finned engine, low seat and dual shocks at least.  The polished cooling fins are largely cosmetic, since the 106 hp mill is water cooled, but the cam profile combines with the 36mm carburetor size to maximize the torque curve.  A budget steel frame and 5-speed transmission are more modern designs, and the tubular fabricated swingarm echoes the chassis.  42mm right-side-up forks and remote reservoir KYB shocks offer full adjustment, and the 6-pot Tokico brakes got raves.

The long term owner has added a few gold highlights to the usual brake carriers and shock reservoirs, and deleted the rear fender and a good portion of the muffler.  Might just be the sun, but the tire dates could be verified before taking a big handful of right wrist.  Otherwise it’s very tidy and seems to be ready for a late afternoon blast out of suburbia.  Comments from the eBay auction –

Time to let her go, I have owned it for 10 years, stored in a heated garage and typically only a Sunday driver. Super clean, not a scratch on it and well maintained, low miles for a 23 year old bike (13,000). I’m sure if you are looking at this you know the history of the Eddie Lawson replica and significance of the features on this bike. Looks great in the garage, I always get tons of complements, if you are looking to add a ZRX to your collection this is a good one.

No real surprise that even without considering the commemorative paint, the ZRX looks almost as good and rides rather better than the ELR from fifteen years earlier.  It pays homage in many ways, but acknowledges the march of time in others.  Not sure their race engineer – Rob Muzzy – from the early championship days, would have it any other way.

1996 Kawasaki Ninja ZX7RR With Very Low VIN (#025) On eBay–Again

The is a great looking ZX7RR N1 that we haven’t seen since September!

Bike:  1996 Kawasaki ZX7RR N1

Miles:  6,998mi

Price:  $6,000 Starting bid with no reserve

Location:  Colorado Springs, Colorado

This ‘RR is on consignment from the third owner, was fully serviced prior to being listed, and the bike is stated to be all original.  Some defects include light scratching to the ram air covers, front fender, some of the left fuel tank decal has been removed by a fuel spill (new one is included with the sale), the battery is dead and the forks have started to leak.  Not exactly what I expect when a bike has supposedly had “…detailed service work” and “…several different services including thorough carb work.”  Regardless, this bike appears to be a very collectible piece with some light love–and front turn signals.

Doug had some very good observations when this bike was first spotted in September:

Downs:
1. Missing the front turn signals
2. Missing the side fairing reflectors
3. Doesn’t have the Muzzy 7rr Special sticker on the tank
4. Butt pad is a little beat up
5. Seat has a gas cap stain – can see if you look closely at pictures
6. Needs a new front tire, but it’s the original D204 Sportmax
7. Has a pencil sized dent in the gas tank.
8. Rims may have been painted at some point.

Ups:
1. It’s a N1!
2. Better than average condition
3. Low miles
4. Has one original tire :)
5. It’s priced right.
6. I like it a whole lot for the money

I’m going to have to agree with Doug, this is a very good–great–bike for the money compared to what we’ve seen other N1’s going for.  If you wanted an occasional weekend bike with collector credibility this is a fantastic choice.  With a little work, I don’t think anyone would be ashamed to have this in their garage.  See Doug’s very thorough write up here.  See some of the other ZX7RR’s we’ve posted .
