Thread: FS: 1974 Kawasaki KZ400 x2

  1. #1 Default FS: 1974 Kawasaki KZ400 x2 
    My friend (sdanley09 on here, doesn't post much) is finally ready to sell the two bikes stored in my garage. Details on the two.

    Edit: They are both 1975's, not 74's. I'm just dumb. If i mod sees this and would be so kind as to change the title i'd be grateful.

    #1 The good one. Just under 5k miles on the clock
    Bike has run, and runs well, when the carbs aren't gummed. They sat long enough with the previous owner that they really need a professional cleaning. I get clean them again for some test riding, but some new seals and a good ultrasonic cleaning would do them well.

    Tires are brand new, less than 200 miles and a year on them.

    The tach is a little "sticky". it is slow to respond until you get it above 5k. It did start to loosen up with use, and i see no reason why it wouldn't continue to get better.

    Otherwise all it needs is the horn sorted (doesn't work right now), and probably a new drive chain. Fires right up once you get the carbs primmed with fuel.

    #2 the not good one. under 5k miles
    This bike doesn't run. It has no spark, and i never got around to figuring out why. Carbs need a rebuild, but i have them and all parts.

    Tires are shot.

    Honestly this bike is good for parts and spares. Engine has under 5k miles, so it's good.



    I have a lot of other spare parts, including an engine off a different year KZ400, spare tank, and literally boxes of parts.

    good bike


    Bad bike about how it sits now


    I need to get some better pictures taken, and will if there is any interest here.

    Looking to get about $1000 for the lot. Really don't want to split it up.

    Great price. I would def pick it up to do my cafe racer project. But no garage

    I need to move out of the city.

    I think these are actually perfect for that. The red one is in amazing shape. exhaust pipes are almost perfect, and the seat looks brand new. Using the other for spares would mean the bike could go forever.

    I would take them on as a cafe project, but i already have the two XS500's.
