1983 KAWASAKI KZ1000R EDDIE LAWSON REPLICA MUSEUM QUALITY CONCOURS D' ELEGANCE AWARD WINNING "OCD" RESTORATION WITH ALL "NOS" BODY PARTS COMING OUT OF MY PRIVATE COLLECTION.

MULTIPLE AWARD WINNER JUST WON "BEST IN CLASS" IN THE BOCA RATON CONCOURS D' ELEGANCE FOR BEST RESTORATION. THE JUDGES FROM THE PEBBLE BEACH EVENT REALLY THOUGHT IT JUST CAME OUT OF THE CRATE! THEY WERE BLOWN AWAY AT HOW PERFECT THE RESTORATION WAS.

 THIS BIKE UNDERWENT A MASSIVE FULL NUT AND BOLT "OCD" RESTORATION AT MY SHOP GLOBE MOTORCYCLES LIMITED. WITH OVER 500 MAN HOURS THIS WAS BY FAR MY MOST EXTENSIVE RESTORATION GASTON, PHIL AND MYSELF HAVE EVER DONE. I USED A FULL SET OF "NOS" BODY WORK SO VERY HARD TO FIND I ONLY HAVE 2 FULL SETS LEFT. DIGGING IN DEEP INTO MY LARGE INVENTORY OF "NOS" AND SPARE ELR PARTS I USE A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF PARTS THAT ARE NOW IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND. THERE IS OVER $15,000 WORTH OF "NOS PARTS ON THIS BIKE.I WILL TRY TO LIST THEM ALL BUT I AM SURE I WILL LEAVE OUT SO MANY THAT THE NEW CARETAKER WILL SEE WHEN HE OR SHE IS STARING AT IT FOR HOURS AND HOURS.

THE BIKE CAME TO ME FROM A COLLECTOR THAT BOUGHT IT FROM TERRY VANCE YES THAT TERRY VANCE. TERRY HAD USED IT IN LATE 1983 AND INTO 1984 AS HIS KAWASAKI PRO STOCKER WINNING THE NMRA PORTION OF THE NHRA WINSTON WORLD FINALS (SEE THE ARTICLE IN CYCLE WORLD 1983). BYRON HINES WAS OUT TO PROVE HE COULD BUILD ANY OF THE 4 JAPANESE BRAND ENGINES INTO WORLD CLASS WINNERS. AFTER WINNING TERRY USED IT AS A DISPLAY AT THE TRACK BUT SUZUKI WAS LESS THEN HAPPY WITH THAT IDEA IT ENDED UP IN THE BACK OF A SHIPPING CONTAINER FOR OVER 25 YEARS. MISSING MANY OEM PARTS AND WITH THE FRAME RAKED FOR DRAG RACING (THE ORIGINAL ENGINE CAME WITH IT AS BYRON BUILT UP A GPZ1100 FOR THE TRACK) IT WAS IN NEED OF SOME SERIOUS HELP. WITH ONLY 1500 ON THE ENGINE THAT WAS EASY PART OF THIS PROJECT. I SENT THE FRAME TO THE BEST FRAME DR. IN THE US GMD MOTORCYCLE FRAME SHOP OUTSIDE ATLANTA GA. USING THE LATEST TECHNOLOGY KENT BROUGHT THE FRAME RIGHT BACK TO OEM SPECS (NOT A FAST OR INEXPENSIVE PROCESS). THEN THE MAGIC BEGAN.

THE ENGINE:
 SERIAL NUMBER KZT00JE042085 THE ENGINE IS BELIEVED TO BE THE ORIGINAL THAT CAME WITH THE BIKE. THE ELR ENGINE NUMBERS ARE NEVER CLOSE OR SIMILAR TO THE FRAME NUMBERS  BUT HAVE A SPECIFIC RANGE THEY FALL INTO FOR 1982 AND 1983. THIS IS THE ENGINE THAT CAME WITH MY PURCHASE AND IS IN THE CORRECT SERIAL NUMBER RANGE FOR AN EARLY 1983 ELR.

WITH ONLY 1500 ORIGINAL MILES IT WAS DISASSEMBLED INSPECTED AND REASSEMBLED WITH A NEW HD CLUTCH AND ALL NEW OEM SEALS AND GASKETS. THE ENGINE WAS PAINTED WITH THE CORRECT LOW SHEEN WHILE IT WAS DISASSEMBLED AS THE FACTORY DID SO NO PAINT WHENT WHERE IT DOES NOT BELONG. THE ENGINE SIDE COVERS WERE REFINISHED IN THE CORRECT GLOSS BLACK AND THE ENGRAVED COVERS HIGHLIGHTED WITH THE CORRECT GOLD PAINT.

THE CARBURETORS WERE COMPLETELY DISASSEMBLED ULTRASONICALLY CLEANED, AND  PAINTED JUST AS THE FACTORY DID, RESEMBLED AND SYNCHRONIZED.

THE FRAME:

THE FRAME AND SWING ARM WERE SANDBLASTED AND TREATED FOR RUST PREVENTION PRIMED AND PAINTED IN THE CORRECT SHEEN USING THE BEST PPG PRODUCTS. ALL THE BEARINGS AND SEALS REPLACED WITH OEM PARTS. ALL THE CABLES REPLACED WITH OEM/NOS PARTS. THE BRAKE SYSTEM WAS DISASSEMBLED COMPLETELY REBUILT WITH NOS/OEM PARTS BOASTING NOS/OEM FRONT AND REAR ROTORS (CAN'T FIND THEM AGAIN $1400). THE SHOCKS WERE DISASSEMBLED PAINTED THE CORRECT GOLD AND FINISHED WITH ORIGINAL DECALS. THE FRONT FORKS WERE DISASSEMBLED REBUILT WITH OEM PARTS AND PAINTED BACK TO THE ORIGINAL SHEEN AND FINISHED WITH THE CORRECT DECAL. THE FRONT AND REAR WHEELS WERE SAND BLASTED PRIMED AND PAINTED IN THE CORRECT GOLD FINISH AND THE OUTER LIP POLISHED TO THE CORRECT SHINE. THE CENTER SPOKES OF THE WHEELS STILL SHOW THE ORIGINAL SMALL CUTS FROM THE MACHINING WHEN THE WHEEL WAS MANUFACTURED (MOST RESTORERS POLISH THAT AWAY NOT GOOD). NOS/OEM BEARINGS/SEALS WERE INSTALLED(OVER 65 HRS JUST ON RESTORING THE WHEELS). THE REAR WHEEL HUB/SPROCKET AND CHAIN ASSEMBLY IS NOS. DUNLOP K400 SERIES TIRES INSTALLED (K300'S NOT AVAILABLE). THE GRIPS, LEVERS, MIRRORS, SWITCHES, END CAPS, FOOT PEGS, TURN SIGNALS, AND ALL THE HARDWARE ARE NOS $$$$$. THE SEAT COVER AND PADING IS NOS $$$$ IT WAS THE ONLY NOS SEAT COVER I HAVE EVER SEEN (PRICELESS). THE REAR FENDER AND CHAIN GUARD ARE NOS. THE KERKER KR EXHAUST, THE SIDE EMBLEM, THE HANGER BRACKET ASSEMBLY AND THE BAFFLE ARE ALL NOS ($3000). THE FUEL TANK, PETCOCK, FUEL GUAGE SENDER, FUEL CAP, SIDE COVERS, FRONT COWL, REAR COWL, FRONT FENDER, TAIL LIGHT, WIND SHIELD AND RUBBER SEAL, EMBLEMS, AND ASSOCIATED HARDWARE ARE ALL "NOS OVER $7000 WORTH OF UNOBTAINIUM. A RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF NOS/OEM HARDWARE WAS USED, AND THE ORIGINAL HARDWARE USED WAS PAINSTAKINGLY INDIVIDUALLY PREPED AND RE-STAINED IN THE CORRECT DARK GREEN FINISH (NOT EASY TO DO).

TELL YOUR WIFE THIS IS A GREAT INVESTMENT THAT WILL ONLY GO UP IN VALUE :). SO HERE IS THE ONLY CHANCE YOU WILL PROBABLY EVER HAVE TO OWN THE BEST EXAMPLE OF 1 OF THE 750ISH 1983 KAWASAKI KZ1000R EDDIE LAWSON REPLICA'S EVER BUILT FOR NORTH AMERICA. IT IS LIKE IT CAME OUT OF THE CRATE WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE DUNLOP K400 TIRES. I WILL FOR SURE CRY WHEN IT SELLS BUT I BLESSED TO HAVE A FEW MORE ELR'S THEY JUST WONT BE AS PERFECT.

I HAVE OWNED MORE THEN 20 ELRS IN THE 5 YEARS AND HAVE THE LARGEST INVENTORY OF ELR PARTS SO BID WITH CONFIDENCE THIS BIKE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY QUESTIONS 954-816-0806 BOB. PLEASE COME SEE HER FIRST IF YOU HAVE ANY DOUBTS. I HAVE BEEN RIDING, RACING, FIXING, RESTORING, AND COLLECTING SPECIAL BIKES SINCE GRADUATING FROM AMERICAN MOTORCYCLE INSTITUTE "AMI" IN DAYTONA BEACH FLORIDA. THIS ELR BELONGS IN A MUSEUM SO DON'T MISS OUT. I RESTORED MORE BIKES THEN I CAN COUNT AND HAVE SATISFIED OWNERS AROUND THE WORLD WITH GIANT SMILES ON THERE FACES EVERY TIME THEY LOOK AT WHAT THE BOUGHT. THE LAST 2 ELR'S I SOLD WENT TO JAPAN. THEY BOTH HAD NOS BODY PARTS ON ALL ORIGINAL BIKES WITH LOW MILES AND SOLD FOR $28,500 AND $36,000 AND JUST NOT A PERFECT AS THIS ONE.

THE ORIGINAL TOOL KIT, OWNERS MANUAL, AND 2 KEYS COME WITH THE BIKE. HIT THE BUY IT NOW AND I WILL THROW IN MY AUTOGRAPHED CUSTOM PAINTED 1983 BELL HELMET.
