I've decided to sell my 1985 Kawasaki Z1100R Lawson Replica. I’ve had the bike for nearly 30 years. I put the bike off the road in 2003 and spend some money and time fixing it up, finished in 2011 and it’s hardly turned a wheel since. It’s not been on the road since 2012 and that was only occasionally. I’ve just fitted new tyres, Metzeler’s, a battery and it has a new MOT. The bike is standard apart from the exhaust and handle bars. The Vance and Hines pipe sounds pretty good. The tank has a couple of small chips that have been touched up, but hardly noticeable as they are on the edge at the bottom. Over all it looks great as you can see.
I fitted Z 750 bars as I liked the bar ends. I still have the original bars and full rear mudguard which will come with the bike, along with all the bolts and rubbers for the standard exhaust. The frame was blasted and pained with 2 pack epoxy and looks great. I have replaced the following. Rubber engine mounts, carburettor manifolds and intake rubbers, cam end seals, cables, the seat was recovered with a cover from the US, swing arm bushes, brake master cylinder internals, caliper pistons and seals, chain and sprockets. It now has tapered head bearings. The igniter unit has been rebuilt by Electrex World.
I was never a fan of the all black engine, so got the external casings polished by Stephen Smethurst. I’ve not touched the motor so it would benefit from the carbs being balanced and perhaps the cam shims being replaced. However, it starts well, runs well and for an 80's bike still seems pretty nippy to me. I have the owner’s hand book but the cover is detached.
I'm looking for £8,500.00. Payment by bank transfer. Mobile 07709 028489...... ask for Andy.
