I'm aware of the proximity of the area codes, I have both a 410 and 301 number. I'm about half way between Balt and DC, so I've listed on both sites at the same time. I didn't use different contact info, I only use my cell phone to prevent reverse look ups by bike thieves. Maybe it is legit and he's just giving a local number for callers from the different Craigslist locations. The price is the real Red flag. He probably spent more than $3,500 on all the restoration he has listed. A quick check on EBay would show the seller that bike is bringing double what he is asking for it. i know a few cases were someone got a true barn find from the original owners at way below market value. That's doesn't normally happen when someone has spent the money required to fully restore a bike.
Having said all that, if I didn't already have a Z1B and a need to thin the heard anyway,, I'd at least call.
I agree that the interest in "old school" kaws is declining here the same way 60's muscle cars are. But I have a couple of friends who were selling kz1000'S and the only interest they got was from a California buyer who was shipping to Japan and didn't question the very high asking price. He told one of my friends that he ships 3 to 4 containers a year of 70's super bikes.
The same restored Z1 in Denver too. Has anyone enquired and got the jist of the scam yet in a reply from the scumbag? I emailed saying I would pay cash on a local pickup deal. I doubt any reply forthcoming.
