1966 Kawasaki W1 650 For SaleJan, 2013
Model: W1 650
This is a special bike. With serial number 000146, there aren't many older W1's on the planet. To boot, it's got 1180 original miles (plus a few test laps around my neighborhood) making it one of the least used. Even the original tires are in decent shape. It would be a great candidate for restoration. I've only cleaned it up a bit and got it running in the few years I've owned it. I must say, it runs great. The previous owner never registered it and claims he never had the title. I can only provide a bill of sale.Description:
