This seller is either a genius or has perfect timing. That beautiful museum piece KZ1000S1 that sold for over $107,000 left a lot of buyers/dreamers wanting. The S1 was obviously only a reality for those with deep pockets, this ELR could be a reality for a much larger buying segment. Bidding started at $10,000.
It’s not showroom original but it hasn’t strayed far. The shocks are different from the originals and appear to be the same as what was on the S1.
THIS IS AN ORIGINAL (NOT A REPRODUCTION MODEL) 1982 KZ1000R EDDIE LAWSON REPLICA WITH ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE FROM JULY OF 1982. THE BIKE HAS A CLEAR TITLE FROM AUGUST OF 1983 WHEN IT WAS PURCHASED BY US FROM THE ORIGINAL BUYER. IT IS #275 OUT 750 PRODUCED. THE BIKE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION AND HAS HAD REGULAR MAINTAINANCE SINCE IT WAS PURCHASED IN 1983. THE BIKE HAS ONLY BEEN STORED INDOORS SINCE OUR PURCHASE. WE ALSO HAVE THE ORIGINAL PAPERS THAT CAME WITH THE BIKE AS WELL AS SOME PROMOTIONAL ITEMS THAT WERE GIVEN AT THE SALE OF THE BIKE (OWNERS MANUAL, KERKER PINS, KAWASAKI PIN, ORIGINAL BILL OF SALE). WE HAVE DETAILED MEASUREMENTS FOR ALL THE VALVES ON THE BIKE FOR GENERAL MAINTAINENCE IF NEEDED. BIKE WAS ONLY TAKEN OUT FOR WEEKEND RIDES AND NOT USED AS AN EVERYDAY VEHICLE. EVERY WINTER THE BIKE WAS WINTERIZED AND STORED IN THE BASEMENT.
It works out to roughly 540 miles a year. Can you believe the bike is 31 years old?
In the spirit of full disclosure, it sounds like the ELR’s are hot sellers any day of the year. Bid to win my friends!
