I'm leaning towards scam since this same bike is listed on the Baltimore with a different contact number

baltimore.craigslist.org/mcy/d/on-sale-1...-z1b/6255476726.html

If this turns out not to be a scam and one of you buys for that price,, please don't tell me. I'll be kicking myself for a week.


Hmm, that first link is really close to my house... I should email him and see what's up.

Once I prove it's not a scam, I can sell it to you for profit, right? :D

People seem to get confused by this sort of thing all the time. :-)

The 410 area code (in the Baltimore ad) is for the Baltimore area. The 240 area code (in the DC ad) is for the western half of Maryland.

However, the map in the DC ad shows a location of Rockville, which is in western Maryland and is NW of DC. It is also considered part of the larger DC area.

CL ads frequently run in multiple locales that are close together; it's only about 35 miles as the crow flies from B-more to Rockville. No real reason to think this is a scam IMO.

You're spot on... for most of it. I live near where the Rockville ad is, and that's considered Central MD. Hagerstown and points west of there are IMHO Western MD.

Still worth looking into.

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.

If it's real it's the bargain of the century. It gives his phone number as (240) 339-5978 so why not give him a call and buy it? Ed

Hi 650 ED, just showing these for you. It's amazing this stuff still is sitting around. Unfortuneitly, the time frame of the old Kaws is winding down. Except for Z1/H2 of course. Good friend from California / Japan he has ran these Business's for the past 17 years.
He pegs it at 2-3 years. He is retiring and moving back to the States then.
But a couple of 650's basicly a big pile of parts between 2 people.

The add with the $3,523 price is almost certainly a scam. For whatever reason those douchebags always use an odd asking price.

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.
321,000 miles on KZ's that I can remember.

Pretty nice shape although I think the engine has been repainted. IIRC the gold powder coat used on those was a very light gold like the forks. What I see on the engine it too dark.
