1980 Kawasaki KZ 550 550

Used 1980 Kawasaki KZ
Chicago, IL

For sale is a custom built 1980 Kawasaki KZ550 Scrambler. The front end is from a Suzuki GSXR. This is a attractive looking and mechanically sound bike - a real head turner. History: The bike was designed and built in 2015 by a former professional racer and skilled mechanic who raced for Yamaha. It was built in Florida for a close friend of the mechanic. The first owner created the custom leather seat, side panels, and tank pouch. In 2017, I purchased the bike from the original owner and had it shipped to St Louis where I was planning to use it as a farm bike. While in St Louis, Flying Tiger Motorcycles created a new perfect-fitting custom stem that was better (i. e. safer) than the original stem. Flying Tiger also installed the Motogadget 'Motoscope Tiny' analog speedometer. I decided not to use the bike on the farm and had it shipped to my home in Chicago where it lived in my garage during the winter of 2018. My priorities then shifted and I decided I didn't need a motorcycle anymore. I wanted the bike to be in perfect condition before I attempted to sell it so I turned the bike over to Federal Moto in Chicago. Federal Moto did a full carb rebuild and tune, an electrical cleanup with new custom wiring harness, a fuel tank cleanup, and an overall inspection and cleaning. I could not be more pleased with the experience I had with Federal Moto. They were very professional, knowledgeable, and communicative. I was extremely impressed with their service and competence. I have complete faith in their mechanical skills. Notes: Custom leather work on seat, side panels, and tank. There is a knife and sheath contained inside one of the triangular sides pouches. Bears a resemblance to Daryl Dixon's bike from The Walking Dead. The original owner estimated he put about 10000 miles on the bike. I put fewer than 25 mis on it. Shipping: Buyer is responsible for shipping. Fine Print: I invested a considerable amount of money into the bike because I like to sell things that are in good working condition. But please be aware that this is a 40 year old bike. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
