Ebay.com should always be your first hot bike stop off point. We immediately saw a 1976 Kawasaki KX250 AHRMA tru grit vintage moto. With 6 days to go it had reached $2,000.
Although it looked like it had come straight out of a biker magazines photoshoot, it had tons of dirt biker additions. Such as Bridgestone back & Michelin front tire, Mikuni carb, ported cylinder and pistons and a NOVATION RACING aluminium swingarm.
Moving onto another racing bikes Kawasaki model on ebay, we picked over a 1986 KAWASAKI KX 125 vintage pit bike. Only a day to go and reaching $102.50 there was still some bidding left to do. The biker picture on the ad looked ok, but this was a barn find. So you wont be racing this on a houston motorsports park anytime soon.
This vintage kawasaki dirt bikes moto needed an exhaust, clutch cable, and the engine didn’t turn over. Bike safety is important with such classics, so take your time and overhaul it in your own time using quality spares.
Lastly on ebay was a Kawasaki KE100-A7 (1978) Owners Manual/Handbook priced at $15.79. Sure it was a bit ragged around the edges, but it was complete.
Also ebay has lots of stock in regards to classic dirtbike manuals- and they’re not overpriced. You’ll need a solid manual when you begin your own projects, and ebay is just the place to buy them.
Talking of hot biker spares you’ll need to visit vintagemotocrossparts.com. Which is self explanatory really, they sell all kinds of biker rally gear from a bike wheel to sets of dirt bike graphics. So what did we pick out? A 1976 Kawasaki KX125 tank sticker was $12.00, and an Oval Number Plate Board for a Vintage 74-76 Kawasaki KX125 came in at $25.99. Plus a KX250 ignition coil for an 83-84 model was selling for $49.95.
A final visit to mxchange.co.uk is also useful. Not exactly vintage, but you can get some cracking deals on some older kawas. A Kawasaki KX 250 for £1700, and this enduro was only a few years old. You might want it for bike stunts, or to race around a stone ground grits circuit. This kawazaki had never been raced fully, and after every 2 rides the oil and air filter had been cleaned. If that’s not enough it comes with a number of spares ie: New renthal bars and grips, cleaners and an airbox cover.
