This week's eBay find is a 1976 Kawasaki KZ900 LTD, a one-year-only version of the KZ900. According to The Standard Catalog of Japanese Motorcycles, the LTD was more of a cruiser than the standard KZ900, and it featured a Jardine four-into-two exhaust, speacial paint and a  more deeply countoured seat. It also had  a second disc brake on the front, and the brake calipers were mounted behind the lower fork legs instead of in front as they were on the standard KZ900. The frame also received additional reinforcing, which aided in handling.

According to the auction listing, the bike was restored at a little over 19,000 miles and has had just 600 put on it since restoration. The engine was totally rebuilt and over-bored to a 1036cc from a 1015cc block using a new piston kit purchased in Australia. The frame, swingarm, brackets and any metal body frame part that was originally black were stripped and professionally black powder coated. It also features a Vance & Hines 4-into-1 exhaust.
