    I recently picked up this sleeping beauty that's been sitting for a few years. Previous owners did a pretty rough job of turning her into a Cafe Racer. I don't plan to do much except get her running and then sell on. Just curious if there's any interest in this for any of the Vintage Racing classes?

    I've been looking for a stock KZ for a dickaround street bike. Do you have a title? What are you looking to get?

    Screaming deal @900.00 and the KZ 650 engine is bullet proof .

    Got the motor running and she sounds pretty sweet. Good consistent compression across all four pots too. Still open to reasonable offers but also thinking about keeping her and doing a light refresh - maybe the restomod route something like this:

    Hi All, quick update....too many projects ongoing and I need to finish something so have decided to sell the KZ650 as-is. I cleaned out the carbs and replaced o-rings where needed and installed new float bowl gaskets. Changed the oil and installed a new filter. Did some basic re-wiring so now she has head, tail & brake lights. Starts up and runs pretty smooth. There was a bit of a hiccup with the title but that's all cleared up and I will have a new NC title in my name in a couple of weeks. I can deliver within 150 miles of Cary NC for $900 cash. Or $750 cash if you pick it up.
