*** 1989 KAWASKI GPz550 - 1 MATURE OWNER FROM NEW ***
 
THIS IS AN INCREDIBLY RARE BIKE & EVEN MORE INCREDIBLY....A 1 OWNER!
HE BOUGHT IT NEW BACK IN 1989 WHEN HE WAS 43 y.o. & NOW 72 y.o. DECIDED TO PART WITH HER & HANG HIS MOTORCYCLE BOOTS UP
 
THIS WAS THE LAST INCARNATION OF THE 80's ICONIC MID RANGE KWAKER THAT SMOKED THE COMPETITION BACK IN THE DAY
JUST READ THIS: https://www.sportrider.com/retrospective-1981-kawasaki-gpz550
 
IN THE EVEN RARER LIVERY (I personally love & prefer) WITH JUST 38,300 MILES IN 29 YEARS - that equates to 1300 per year
which probably actually did the engine good instead of being stored.
HAVING RIDDEN HER OVER 100 MILES SHE RUNS, RIDES, STOPS & HANDLES LIKE A DREAM
I CANNOT REITERATE ENOUGH HAVING 1 MATURE OWNER HAS DEFINITELY HELPED HER AGE WELL
 
I HAVE 2 KEYS, MOT UNTIL MAY 2019, OWNERS HANDBOOK, TOOL KIT & AN HPI REPORT TO PROVE 1 OWNER
with no finance, insurance claims or an import
 
SHE IS ALMOST TOTALLY ORIGINAL APART FROM A PERIOD MOTAD EXHAUST WHICH AS YOU CAN SEE IS IN PERFECT FETTLE
AND HE DECIDED THERE WAS TOO MUCH RED/ORANGE GRAPHICS GOING ON SO HE REMOVED THEM OFF THE FAIRING AND REAR 
TAIL PIECE BUT THERE ARE COMPANIES THAT WOULD RE-DO THESE IF YOU WANT TO PUT BACK TO ORIGINAL
 
THE ONLY REAL FAULT IS A DENT ON THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE TANK WHICH HE HAS NEVER HAD REPAIRED & A DIMPLE
which has not marked paint and I think an easy suction out job on fight hand side - I didn't even notice it when I viewed the bike
BUT THIS ALL ADDS TO THE "ONLY ORIGINAL ONCE" VALUE
 
SHE'S NOT PERFECT BUT THEN SHE'S ALSO NOT A LOT OF MONEY
 
NO SMOKE, UNTOWARD RATTLES, STARTS ON THE BUTTON AND CARBS WERE APPARENTLY OVERHAULED IN 2014
 
TYRES ARE GOOD & AS YOU CAN SEE FROM THE PHOTOS SHE IS OVERALL A VERY GOOD CLEAN EXAMPLE OF AN
APPRECIATING AND ALREADY VERY RARE CLASSIC - ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING WORKS ON HER - ALL ELECTRICS
ARE FAULTLESS & SORRY TO KEEP BANGING ON BUT SURE THIS IS DOWN TO THE SAME OWNER IN HER 29 YEAR LIFE
 
A LOVELY 80's BIT OF BIKE HISTORY FOR SOMEONE
