Kawasaki Ke125 W reg 1980 for sale. 

For sale is my Kawasaki KE125 trials motorcycle. 

Registration number NJF 79W. First registered the 18th November 1980(so it

 is now Tax and MOT exempt).

Having given up biking and with my modern bike now gone its time to sell 

the Ke125. 

It is in lovely condition with many new parts. 

I have owned the bike for around 18 months and have only cleaned it. V5

present in my name and at my address.

The bikes mileage is shown as 21160 but at this age I cannot verify it but 

the MOT history does show its mileage at 16738 in July 2006.

Overall condition of the bike is very good.

It has new wheel rims and tyres, new rear shock absorbers, new battery, and

the fuel tank is rust free and in excellent condition with only slightly faded

graphics. 

The bike has numerous spares with it including an exhaust which has never

been welded and looks great. There are hand books and manuals.

I bought the bike as a non runner with no spark.

There cannot be much wrong as the bike was running 22 Miles ago at its

last MOT in November 2017. 

I do not have the interest in the bike having given up motorcycling so selling

 to clear the garage space.

Please PM me and I will pass my contact number.

Bike is in the Swansea area.

An ideal project.   Selling for £999. Including the spares.   

 No offers.

(The bike is only going up in value)

Great little bike. I had one years ago to commute a very short distance to work. Mine was green but I had it sprayed white and changed the graphics to read "Wakasaki screechier" in green.

When selling, a young lad came with Mum, Aunt, sisters and brothers to buy it. He asked if he could have a short test ride so, after a talk with his Mum, I let him ride it to the bottom of the road (a steep downhill) and back.

He took ages getting back and when he came into view, it was obvious he didn't take much notice to the graphics. He told me "It doesn't want to go". It seemed obvious to me that he had never ridden a 2 stroke. Anyway, I road to the bottom of the hill and then screeched it back to the top then rode up the grass bank in front of him and flew.

The sale was completed, full price and he went away having learned something and, very happy with his new bike.

Great little bike and very easy for a young rider to ride and work on. GLWS but I don't think you will need it at that price.

Well done. ( pedant alert.... it's  a trail bike, not a trials bike.)
