Default Unfinished chop 4 sale

Found this...kawasaki-z-750-hard-tail chop might be a start for someone.

I don't think that's over-priced either - 500 for a running (I'm assuming?) bike with that much done to it already? It'd cost you more than that to get what it's had done to it done.

It is quite ugly, I'll grant you.

There's no coils on it for a start, or air filters. The Tank seriously needs to go on another bike as it looks bloody silly on that. It needs a full re-wiring as it looks like someone has chopped the hell out of it. The arse end looks like it was cobbled together under the influence of booze and/or drugs and that seat looks like the arm of my Nans sofa.

I would only give 50 for that and that's being generous.

for half the price I might have looked at it, 650 motor with carbs etc is worth that round here

I was searching for a long time for an aircooled 650+ 4 pot lump with the running bits and nothing for less than 450+

or it looks cheap then you find that they have removed the carbs, and all the leccy bits, alternator, pickups, starter etc, and they never had all the bits, and even if they did they wouldnt do a deal on a job lot

thats how I ended up with a stupid lil water cooled lump LOL

That's worth more than the chop, but not 450. I would give 100 for that. Like Drew says a lick of paint, a pair of sidepanels and a mudguard and off you go.

BUT.

There's always a but.....

The front end is wrong. It looks like a 550 front end or even a 305. It's too spindly for a 750 and i reckon it would give you "interesting" handling characteristics.
