I saw it too, and thought "Wow", but, all the hoses have to be replaced......

Wow, wish this was mine! If even replacing tires, hoses, belts, I'd have to suffer through it, no problem.

Geez AZ that sure brings a buyer down the earth doesn't it...

Look honey what I just bought!! I only have to change 20 things on it to make it road worthy...



But then again, it may be going straight to a museum or garage as a keepsake

Life is too short to have that big of a cow over the little things in life...

She was a beauty....



If I remember, the seller said there wasn't even any dry-rot on the factory tires. I'm thinking it must have been stored in Micheal Jackson's hyperbaric chamber!!!

It may not need all that much replaced. I have a 1978 KZ650 and a 1980 KZ1000 that have less than 4000 miles each and no rot on the original tires, no problems with any of the original rubber, but this is Honda. Honda wasn't quite built like a Kawasaki

Wouldn't you think the carbs would need work. Gas is ugly when it gets old and the belts would be another thing I would question.
