wow what can i say i am speechless, it is a very big surprise to see i have won BOTM for August ,i am very pleased thanks Guys
for this honer ,i love the bike she is a real head turner a real muscle bike from the 80s ,it started when i first started work many years ago ,there was a guy who worked in same place as me ,he had a beautiful Kawasaki z650 in red, i drooled at it every time i saw it ,i have always wanted a big Kawasaki 1000 but it has been hard finding one in this country in good condition ,most of them now are very rusty and not looked after ,one thing i hate is rust it saddens me too see them in that condition ,so when i saw this beauty i just had to have it and the spoke wheels are great with the alloy rims ,its come from the USA so its in fantastic condition like a new bike the weather here in uk is damp and cold a lot of the time , so when i do get her out for a nice trip it makes it very special to me ,once again thanks guys B) B) B) :)

That bike is in beautiful condition! Also, it's one of very few models that came stock with dual front disks on wire wheels; I love that look. Ed

Good Choice, very nice. I know it's an import. but it is so unusual to find them that nice in the UK. Most of the really good bikes here have been heavily restored.

I like that two tone paint job, subtle and very classy. Kawasaki really knew how to work colours and graphics.

This BOTM standard has been set really high judging by the first three. Excellent!

Congratulations! I am glad your bike is the BOTM, looks like it was preserved in a time capsule.,
I have a 1980 Kawasaki KZ750 Ltd. I bought new. I recently managed to get it out of my garage after 28 years and put it on the road again (2010). I feel like a kid all over again. Since I have acquired 3 78 KZ1000 Ltd, 1 1981 KZ1000 Ltd, and another 1980 KZ750 Ltd. Love the LTD's.
