1980 Kawasaki KZ 650 café racer 



The Kawasaki Z650 and KZ650 of the late seventies and early eighties have become popular over the last few years as donor bikes for café racer projects. This KZ650 was the subject of a complete mechanical overhaul in 2003 at a cost in excess of £2000, following which it was stored for several years.  It was then acquired in 2011 by Colchester based café racer specialists Steve Emmins and Steve Howard who carried out an extensive five hundred hour project to convert the bike to the stunning café racer spec that you see before you.  The bike has been upgraded from top to bottom, but highlights include the following:

- handmade and hand polished aluminium tank
- tailored one-off seat
- tailormade rearsets
- four into one Vance Hines exhaust
- clip-on handlebars

A particular feature of the build is the meticulous attention paid to polishing and cleaning every individual part.  This café racer really has to be seen to be appreciated.  For any additional information or to arrange a viewing please contact Andrew on                         or
