I've been trying to buy this bike off a casual acquaintance for about 15 years. Last night he caved - I'm picking it up this weekend.

1984 Kawi GPz 750 turbo. I know the history of this bike from 1986 on. It's rough but was gone through about 8 years ago. A few dings here and there but comes with a complete spare bike (basket case). The tank on the other bike looks good so between the two I think I'll be able to make it decent looking.

I probably won't get started on this thing til winter if even then. Like i said she's rough - try not to laugh lol.

Allegedly it was the fastest production bike made in 84 and 85. Apparently Jay Gleason turned a 10.7 on a stock one at some point depending on what you read.

It's probably going to be a nightmare to restore but I'm committed now.
