*** 1981 KAWASAKI GPz1100 B1 - RESTORED - UBER RARE EXAMPLE ***FIRSTLY.....APOLOGIES IF LONG WINDED BUT PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ & UNDERSTANDI have just re-listed the bike for £1000 less as I had to take off the market with 100 watchers hounding meas I hadn't got it back from the mechanics. Despite his efforts he couldn't get the fuel injection running smoothlySo I had paid for the fuel injectors to be sent off & professionally refurbished & tested (£300), but in fairnessold 80's fuel injection systems were not his brief & he gave up. I am expecting a new fuel filter any day then willpost a video (if not already gone) of the bike running albeit roughly. When I viewed the bike originallyhe started it up, no smoke, rattles or issues, just died when you opened the throttle. It's still the same!I do not have the time, inclination or know anyone local to me who can fix it so I have re-listed for a £1000 lessso an expert can get their hands on it and finish off this lovely project & have a very rare valuable bike at I believean excellent priceSo the description...Uk bike with just 3 owners. Last owner bought it way back in 2001 & then spent a long long time...18 yearslovingly restoring it from the ground up (except engine which has only done 29,000 & needs black finishre-applying especially where fuel has marked left hand casing whilst trying to sort running - see photos).
Due to severe arthritis when he had almost finished he was never able to ride it! What a shame.So literally almost everything is new and it has never been ridden...yet!
A few years ago he even managed to source some excellent OEM exhausts & the only thing now not finished is tachometernot working (have a spare as well) & as previously mentioned the fuel injection system. Otherwise pretty spectacular exampleUK bike with low mileage, owners & parts must be worth more than I'm asking?You may wait a very very long time to find another one as good.
Literally fresh paint in original "firecracker red", powder coated frame, etc.etc.Again just look at the photos to see how lovely she isFor sure these prices will only head north quickly - especially with the 1100 beast of an engine & so so rare.IF ON FACEBOOK...LOOK AT ALL MY 5* REVIEWS ON MY BUSINESS PAGE(Feel free to like my page as well ;-)www.facebook.com/phm.co.uk
