This keychain i picked up for it’s a concealed weapons permit we kind of got a little obsessed on the project and you know did a lot of cool things like this concealed weapons permit it’s been kind of a fun project here at the shop been working on for a couple months you might have seen it in a bunch of our videos now we’re putting it up for sale we can’t give it

Away we’ve got a work order with five thousand five hundred and twenty three dollars in parts and labor put into the bike fifty five hundred dollars it’s not hard to do restoring a a classic like this but it is the kz 1000 they’re known to be bulletproof motors this was maintained by the municipality which is uh to say over maintained um because it was a police

Duty bike so they always changed the oil tires brakes everything was fresh 46 646 original miles you can see the tack and the speed are in good shape has the storage compartments up here on the fairing definitely an all-day cruiser it has a super comfortable police edition leather seat fantastic nice comfortable seat with a lumbar support on the back here and

Gives you the ability to slide back a little bit at six two the only thing i would do is add some highway pegs and put a stereo on it and you got yourself a cross-country cruiser the um bike runs phenomenal the brakes everything works great handles phenomenal again it’s got the new chain on it you can see the center stand uh is intact and if you zoom in on it you

See it was repainted along with the kickstand which was repainted just a beautiful piece now um there is a slight whine in the transmission that you might have heard when i took off it is a transmission bearing which jeff said could last you know a long time uh or or you could replace it now um it’s not failed it’s just whining uh the oil in the gearbox is new

So um we discovered that after we wrote it around a little bit but uh we’re selling it the way it is uh it’s cosmetically restored mechanically uh gone through but it does have that one slight issue with the the gearbox wine which you can or cannot fix it’s up to you we’re selling it the way it is so if you have any questions about it give us a call 860-454-7024

June you want anything about this classic police interceptor definitely a luxury for the cops to be riding around on this eric cold big kz thousand with the chain drive and triple disc brakes just total classic in police form and i’m not surprised why they uh use these for so many years after the main production you know it is a replica the chip spike for sure

Services needed we ended up with two of these so we took this one right to the limit you can see the engine cases were polished all aluminum and chrome has been polished it’s as good as it’s going to get the bags uh this is a nice storage on the top here um i’ve got this one additional decal i’m going to monitor it says give me liberty or give me death that’s
