Well after what seems like an eternity of searching for a Kawasaki W650 for my Cafe Racer project I’ve finally got one! It came up for sale on bikesales.com.au and I had a reply to my request for info in a day.

Cam at Canberra Motorcycle Centre in the ACT has been kind enough to crate the bike up and put it in a truck to get it over here to WA.

The W650 is a 2000 with only 9000kms on the clock and is immaculate (exactly what I’ve been looking for). It also has the rear gear rack and screen which will be good to have. The bike should arrive in a week or so and I will post more details when it arrives. Then as I begin my Cafe Racer conversion I will be walking through the entire process here on the blog complete with pics and vids for all those who are interested. Here’s a pic of the bike from the ad online (above).
