I usually don't care for these, but this one looks nice.




1981 Kawasaki KZ440
Nice looking resto-mod in great condition. You won't see another one like this. Runs great, easy and comfortable to ride.

Fresh battery, carbs and fluids. New front tire, near new back.

The power thing was due to jetting setup changing from the factory. It's a touch heavier, but also handles better than the '69. Once you fit chambers and jet them right they are all the same as best I can tell from behind the bars. The early ones are more collectible. If you want a fun bike to ride any will do and the later ones (rejetted, etc.) are my preference.

Cr500

Not mine

http://lascruces.en.craigslist.org/mcy/4485947646.html

1995 CR500 with WER Steering Stabilizer, Oversize bars, IMS Tank, Billet aluminum kick stand, tires have 3 rides one them. I hate to sell it, but haven't ridden it much in the last few years and I'm getting along in age with new priorities in life. I purchased it in California 7 years ago in Victorville, CA with an interesting story of who owned it, i.e. Hollywood actor. It came with special side plates, which will go along with the bike.

Sweet bike but for that price it'll need new plastics.Even then, that is crazy high. I saw one in eagle a few months ago in better cosmetic condition got for ~$900

How about an electric Honda CB550 (well it WAS a 550 anyway)?

http://albuquerque.craigslist.org/mcy/4473986277.html

Electric motorcycle 1976 Honda CB 550 - $1200 (Silver City)



craigslist - Map data OpenStreetMap



419 w sonora
(google map) (yahoo map)

condition: good


1976 Honda CB 550. A summer recycling project led to finding this bike sitting out in the weather for 10 years with a seized engine. After 5 months of restoration which included new tires, seat, 12 volt wiring, total re-coating of frame, fenders, etc, it was ready to convert to electric.

The tach was removed to accommodate a battery meter for the 48 volt system and one switch each for the 12/48 volt systems. The motor is a 19volt peak H.P. permanent magnet dc with a direct drive chain which is capable of speeds up to 45mph. Since i just needed an in town commuter, i chose this gear ratio. The 48 volts system is 4- 35 amp hour agm batteries which are situated on brackets using the existing mounts and holes in the frame. This modular battery installation allows for future re-configuring, larger batteries, or permanent brackets welded on in the future. The controller is an Alltrax 48 volt programmed, 300 amp, and performs extremely well. An on-board battery charger plugs in anywhere and is rated at 6 amps max., but will taper the input charge based on battery levels. I kept the original throttle cables and routed them to a heavy duty golf cart throttle which feeds the controller. The 48volt contactor is also a golf cart transplant. The front brakes could use some work. The master cylinder has been replaced and i rebuilt the caliper, but it still sticks. Rear brake drum works great. All lighting and horn is functional except the headlight, which i had planned to convert to l.e.d. All the 12 volt components currently feed from one battery, as it still needs a DC-DC converter installed. This bike is fun to ride and makes little noise, mostly from the chain. It can go around 8-10 miles on flat ground before it needs a recharge, but here where it's all hills, i can get about 6 miles max. I road almost daily for 6 months, so there is quite a bit of life left in the batteries and tires. Since i'm not much of a motorcycle person, i'm passing it on to someone else who might make use of it or just have a parts bike. Call for questions or whateva.
