W1 650 EX POLICE BIKE THAT RUNS REALLY WELL,HAS A GREAT STRONG ENGINE.
This old bike belonged to a family member and the engine was rebuilt not long before he took possesion of it quite a few years ago now.He went about trying to pretty it up with some new paint and odds and ends(some non original?,blinkers?) and was happy restoring and playing with it.He was riding it around a little bit but shortly after went on to another project,and the Kawa was given a park spot further back in the shed.
He has had it out recently for a putt around and decided that he would part with it.It still hasn't done a great heap of kms since he has owned it and for that reason the motor is still considered very good.
Brakes also are very fresh.
It has it's share of minor faults;the speedo mount cushion is history and the speedo is held in by tape.Front fork seals and one boot is very average.Lots of scale and rust spot on chrome and ally,...a few probs ,but no biggies.Despite all that it could clean up to present a little better in it's current form.There's a handful of bits ,rear pegs,centrestand here to go back on.It's a very straight and sound bike.I rode it in to town the other day and it reminds me of an XS Yammy i had once;same feel with the engine;similar power.Does everything a Pommy twin does,including vibrates,but holds oil a little better.Mufflers are hollow and have the odd vibration crack,but pretty much everything works on the bike(makes a very sweet pommy rip off noise) Currently on club reg.My own honest appraisal?..it's not my taste out the road,but it's a fun bike around the beach roads and slow traffic.
Price is based on selling with a LOT of spares.VERY good bottom end,almost complete gearbox(damaged)cylinders,head,rocker boxes,headers,primary covers;almost a complete spare engine if added together minus pistons and pushrods.kickstart,front and rear wheels,front crashbars plus other frame parts and brackets,4 carbs.Lots of small bits and pieces pertaining to the bike and a few parts from earlier W1.
I would like someone to buy the lot but would be willing to sell the bike on it's own.
The bike on it's own is asking $5,500 and would include a few cosmetic spares thrown in as a sweetener.Phonecalls work well,and cash on pick up is good too.
More pics coming.
