Classic Kawasaki Streetfighters; Maybe the Kawasaki Z1R is the first accidental streetfighter. It's got the lines, the tough look, and the power (for it's age) to qualify right out of the box.
This tough looking 1973 Kawasaki KZ1000 streetfighter shows real craftsmanship! You gotta love the sturdy upside-down forks anodised gold, the modern swingarm (GSXR maybe?) and a bunch of other mods. Nice seat, fat wheels with good rubber, and a lot of careful detail work puts this fighter up there with the best.
Similiar bike as above, but this KZ900 streetfighter features a neat tubular braced swingarm with eccentric adjust, specialty engine plates and covers, massive front end with huge brakes etc., piggy-back shocks, the obligatory streetfighter headlights and more detail work not seen here. Love this unit!
Just look at this legendary two stroker with all the right equipment. Single-sided swing arm on an early Kawi frame? NICE WORK!
Big modern front end, excellent pipes and a great paint job round out this unusual 2-stroke streetfighter.
An enormous looking Kawasaki KZ1300 six-cylinder beast takes to the street. lot's of nice touches, including the bodywork and paint, oval muffler, minimalist headlight, piggy-back shocks. The list goes on.
The amazing KZ1000 Streetfighter below was for sale on American Classix website a while back for $10,000 Canadian. About $9,500 US these days.
