Around here we like café racers, restored bikes, original bikes, customs, bobbers and sometimes even bikes that don't fit nicely into any one category like this 1977 Kawasaki KZ1000.

We're guessing it was a nice, stock KZ many years ago, before someone decided to add the Mikuni carbs, the Vance & Hines four-into-one exhaust (which is probably painfully loud for the street, unless it's got a serious baffle hiding inside of it), the extended swingarm and more. It's also been lowered (for that "bad boy look," it says) and it's missing its gauges, but it could be yours for a "Buy It Now" price of just $2,250, according to the auction. We can't decide if we love it or hate it, or even which modifications we'd keep and which we'd replace if it lived in our garage, but we can tell you it looks like fun.
