*****Relisted due to a timewasting buyer who didnt collect.***** Kawasaki GPX750R 1987 Unfinished Project I bought this in lockdown, spent a load on it, then got side-tracked with various other projects and never got back on with this one. Now priorities have changed and i want this gone, i need the room and some £ back from it. The good bits are:- New tyres (never ridden on) New brake linesNew brake padsNew chain and sprockets New oilNew batteryNew screenNew air filterNew plugsNew oil filterWheels powder coatedNew wheel bearings Painted rad cover/grillCarbs ultrasonically cleaned New silicone coolant hoses New rear brake master cylinder New brake seals in all 3 callipersReplaced the radiator Bad bits - turns over well on on the starter motor but won’t quite burst into life. It did run when first reassembled but now it’s being a pain. Might just be fresh fuel, it really tries to fire-up but doesnt quite make it. Everything did work so its just time and a little patience needed - maybe a plug gummed-up or something equally daft/annoying. When i first reassembled it started nicely, warmed-up and revved cleanly, the exhaust didnt have any holes, it sounded great. Shame its decided to be a PITA when ive come to re-start it 12-months (ish) later.I can’t get the the front brakes to firm-up for some reason, New brake lines, calliper seals, etc... when i pump the lever i can see fluid moving at the calliper (hose attached to bleed nipple) so its all working, but just wont firm-up. It’s almost certainly air somewhere, just needs someone with a couple of hours and the will to do it. The tank has been sealed with a 2-pac coating due to rust on the inside, but has 2 pin-holes that seep fuel on the underneath. I read that the solution is to solder over them, as the rest of the inside is coated, again - a little job for someone willing. The engine paint is poor, flaking on the cylinders and cam cover. Lower-half is ok. The bodywork is not perfect needs a jolly-good t-cut. There are 2 cuts in the bodywork near the mirrors - god knows why. Most of the £££ has been spent to finish the job and put it through an MOT, it needs a new owner who’s motivated to trouble-shoot the final few issues and get it back on the road. I’m into this £1500-ish, i know im not going to break even, but its a honest bike, an honest advert, a 'easy-to-finish' project but ive moved onto other things and dont have the time, patience or inclination any more. I’m in Derby, UK. Its never going to be a show-winner, but it deserves to be finished and back on the road! I'm happy to work with Shiply if the winning bidder isnt able to collect in person, but funds must be cleared before the bike leaves my house. I have the V5 in my name, matching numbers, etc... There will be a small box of spaces/parts replaced, bits and bobs that come with the bike. Nothing notable though.
