I put for sale my custom made Scrambler, “The Spartan ” made from a pristine, mechanically sound 1981 Kawasaki KZ 750, the previous one was sold on eBay.This IS THE LOVE CHILD (OUT OF WEDLOCK ) of a mechanical engineer and a knife maker (me).This is a carefully crafted custom motorcycle, not a backyard dead trap.The front end came from a sports bike and was machined to fit the KZ perfectly. It handles great and is a pleasure to ride either on asphalt or dirt.
The paint is copper with green patina.The front fender is an army shovel that can be easily removed an attaches to the handle (in the side bag) .It has 2 cameras, front, and back connected to a small monitor that records in 720 hd, upgraded brakes on both wheels.More than 40 pounds of weight was removed from the original frame, making it much more nimble, also the chain-wheel ratio was recalculated to suit the new geometry and torque.The chain has titanium links. It also has a phone charger and cigarette lighter under the seat.The tachometer is digital.
I made all the custom leather with top quality tanned leather , hand stitched and hot waxed to waterproof it .More than 40 hours of tooling and hand stitching were needed to complete all the leather work. The tool bag has the original tools plus a custom made a knife with 440c steel and teak wood reclaimed from an old schooner, it also has a fire steel. There is really a lot of stuff to write about this bike, but I don’t do too well with the keyboard, This is a well built, one of a kind machine that will go on forever, with minimum maintenance.Lots of time and money were spent on this bike , now is time to build another. This is a bike to be use and enjoyed, not a prop. I have been riding it for the last three months, it took me on some epic trips on the Florida Everglades and countless back roads, its the kind of bike you are always looking for an excuse to ride. It runs great.
