This 1976 Kawasaki KZ750 B1 comes from the model’s first year in production and is powered by a 745cc parallel twin paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. The bike is said to have remained with its original owner through the mid-1990s, and with the second owner until its acquisition by the selling dealer earlier this year. The bodywork is finished in metallic red with polished fenders, and aluminum wheels from a later Kawasaki have been fitted along with new tires. An oil change has been carried out along with replacement of several bulbs, the speedometer cable, and the rear brake master cylinder. This KZ750 is offered with a tool kit, owner’s manual, and clean Wisconsin title.
