"Can be considered a very fine restoration project. Once among the toughest superbikes on the street - today a rare and sought-after collector's item"


The Z1000R-II was Kawasaki's top model in 1983. This year, this model was made only in white, while the 1984 edition was green. It featured racing-style shock absorbers with separate pressure chambers. An air fork with pressure equalization between the fork legs, electronic ignition, and four 34mm Mikuni carburetors. Air-cooled four with dual overhead cams, a five-speed gearbox, and a power output of 100 horsepower. It was marketed as the Eddie Lawson replica since Eddie raced in the AMA Superbike series with Kawasaki in the 1981 and 1982 seasons - where he won impressively.
This particular unit has been stored away for the last 20 years but has been started occasionally.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Not inspected, but has been started occasionally and when doing so, some leakage, primarily around the carburetors, has been noted. Gaskets and rubber parts are old.

  • Exterior condition:

    Overall intact, complete, and nice for its age. Some scratches and scuffs have occurred, but there are no dents in the tank or other parts. Engine parts have lost some color over the years. Handlebars and exhaust system are not original. A small tear can be seen on one edge of the seat.

  • General condition:

    Very good, structurally undamaged with some cosmetic blemishes, but nothing that stands out. Needs a complete mechanical overhaul to get it back in drivable condition.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
