I have boughten all of my KZs for anywhere between $1000 to $2000, does this seem way out of the ballpark? It is nice it only has 957 miles (if is true), but no side covers, not completely stock, I am thinking $2000 to $3000 tops.

I knew I'd seen that bike before, the guy has it listed on ebay item#260250867322 it is currently bid up to $1125.00 so yeah I'd say he is a bit out to lunch on his CL ad. He also has a real ratty 74 Z-1 listed on ebay. The guy has a set of side covers that won't fit it because they are from a 76 KZ900. I could use a set so I asked him if he might want to sell them. He told me he wanted $200.00 for the set. I sent him a reply asking him if he had been smoking crack.:laugh:

LOL, that is too funny. I never go on ebay, just saw this thing while checking Craigslist. At least I am not the only one who thinks this guy is off his rocker :)

That is one of the more "too high":laugh: 957 miles? Right. Bid to $1100 whatever on ebay, that's pretty much the value. I bought my 1980ST with 4000 miles (higher than 900 I'll admit),for $2500 but there is one very small difference. Mine is 100% factory perfect. Looking at ebay it does appear to even have original tires as well as the always missing grab bar, so it may be low miles, but still in need of a lot of help. How in this world do people pay good money for something brand new and let it turn into a piece of junk? I think part of the most the reason my motorcycles look the way they do is my dad was extremely meticulous in the way he took care of things and I would have been beat to death at age of three if I didn't follow suit.

Vintage Motorcycles rated that bike in late 2007. They estimated that a 'concours' quality (and it doesn't get any better than that) E model should bring about US$3100...the CL seller is way overpriced.

Yeah theres a guy here in St. John's who's trying to sell a 1000LTD for $3400 I think.

I'll never sell my bike, because I'll never get back the cash, blood, sweat, and tears I've put into it. And I've only owned the thing for 5 years yet! Once it gets to the condition I want it to be in then I'll meticulously maintain it until a son or nephew wants it, then i can teach him the way of the Kawi.

I just wonder how much "hammer mechanic" he did on it to get that seat to mount at all.

There will be more rust and sitting dage to that one, $2k at most but more likely under $1500 even this time of year.
