1996 W650 Kawasaki
This 1996 W650 Kawasaki was an original motorcycle purchased for a dealer in Sydney.
The bike was an honest motorcycle with moderate kilometres.
The customer didn’t want to trade the bike in on a new plastic rocketship. So after long discussions the customer decided on the cosmetic restoration.
This involved changing the colour, polishing and painting frame, parts, engine parts, wheel hubs and restoring the wheels.
Dubbed “The Old Girl”, this 1976 Kawasaki Z900 has been loved for over 30 years by a passionate owner, and is seeing her first top-to-bottom concourse restoration.
This motorcycle is being taken apart and fitted with new, original-where-possible parts, resprayed in her original colours, receiving a full servicing and polish to the engine and having cosmetic damage such as scorch marks to the seat repaired.
