Found on eBay: 1984 Kawasaki GPz550

Reader Contribution by Landon Hall

Ready for riding, here’s a bike to make you yearn for spring: a slick 1984 Kawasaki GPz550, complete with period aftermarket fairing panels and in lovely condition.

According to the auction, the bike shows a little more thank 37,000 miles, but it looks like it had caring owners throughout its life. The current owner has put about 1,000 miles on the bike, and it’s recently received a tune-up which included cleaning and synching of the carburetors, new fork seals and dust boots, cleaning and flushing of the brake system, new spark plugs and spark plug wires, new tires and more.

The seat looks as though it is starting to come apart at the front, and it’s bound to have a few nicks and scratches that the pictures aren’t showing due to the mileage, but well kept GPZ’s of any size are getting harder and harder to find, and this is one we’d love to have in our garage.
