It started life as a 1987 Kawasaki Ninja 750. Then through neglect and craigslist, it came to me. For $300!
The gas tank was shot, rusted through. The fairings are gone (I don’t like them anyways) and the battery is shot.
The engine though?
Runs like a champion.
Somehow I got lucky and was able to get the bike started and running (twice!) before the old battery finally died.
