Maybe I’m just fucked up in the head, but I have no idea where this seller is coming up with $3,499 for this stock 1981 Kawasaki KZ100.

As a basic bike, it looks perfect. It’s got low miles. It looks like it’s spent most of it’s life in a garage. But it’s still a stock 1981 Kawasaki KZ1000. The fact that it hasn’t had any upgrades in 30 years isn’t an asset to me.

Previously I posted about a bad ass custom KZ1000 in Pennsylvania that was going for $3,500. I wrote about another KZ1000 for sale in San Diego. It was totally custom as well, and the seller was asking too much for it at $5,000.

Realistically, I could see spending $2,200 on this stock KZ1000. I’d put a $1,000 to $1,500 into to make it look bad ass and it would be sweet. But $3,500 for a stock KZ1000, I don’t think so.
