This restored 1979 Kawasaki KZ1300 has just under 36,000 miles and looks to be in prime shape for many more. 1979 was the first production year for the KZ1300, and the auction states that the previous owner of this bike spent several thousand dollars performing a fraome-off chassis and engine restoration.

Although it wears a non-stock 6-into-1 exhaust, it otherwise appears to be in very nice, stock condition. The bike is available at National Powersports Distributors in Pembroke, New Hampshire.
