Kawasaki W650 scrambler

For a friend

I'm selling my beloved custom Kawasaki W650 scrambler. It's had a lot of great custom work done, but it's also in need of a fair amount of maintenance work which I don't have the time or money to invest in. (It does run though, in case you're wondering).

If you know the model, you'll know these are very rare, and certainly worth more than I'm advertising for. It's also a ton of fun to ride, and drop dead gorgeous. The price reflects the fact that there's work needed.

Genuinely interested parties can contact me, and I'll send back a comprehensive list of both the work done, and the work needed. Definitely not out to B.S. anyone just want to get it to someone who'll care for it and enjoy it as much as I have.

(Has papers. RWC not included. Sold voetstoots.)

Not sure - I think there is a slight oil leak on the countershaft, and the hipster wiring was playing up, but I think that was sorted recently.  Best to ask the seller ;)

Does it still have all the original parts?
People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day. And doing nothing often leads to the very best kind of something.

Jeepers I haven't been on here in ages. (For the record, I didn't ask teebag to post this, he's just being a rad dude).

Yes, it's my bike. If you're for reals interested, drop me a PM and we can chat details. I don't really want to post a comprehensive pros / cons list here.

Nah I just don't ride dual sport stuff that much anymore, and I decided to stop slumming it on web forums a while back. Social media keeps me more than busy enough  :pot:

I don't even have the Triumph anymore either.

Aren't you the guy that rode a Kawa 650 with the word Triumphant on the tank?

I think I met you at WOE in Somerset West yoooonks ago.
