    1976 Kawasaki KE175 - $600 (Boise)

    <section class="userbody"> <figure class="iw"> [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    </figure> <section id="postingbody"> Selling my kawasaki KE175. Starts within the first four kicks, runs great.
    New battery, rectifier, turn signal relay, head light.
    Needs rear turn signals.

    Has separate oil reservoir so no pre-mixing required.

    I use it as my daily driver. I'm just looking to get something else. Would make a great starter bike, or would be great on the trails. Even rides great on the streets. Title in hand.

    Asking $600.00 o.b.o. Shoot me a text or call at 208</section></section>

    Awesome find! I love these, even in 2WD form. And of course, any of the first generation HiLux 4x4s\conversions are awesome.

    But, if you think you are going to tow anything with a 22R powered RV that is also loaded down by being a 4x4, you are friggin' crazy. :D

    Good price if it's as good as the seller says it is.


    V-8/V-6 conversion :deal

    That little yota is cool.

    I don't know: I had an '85 pickup, rated at 100 hp, FWD, with a camper that weighed 1100 lbs empty.

    Loaded for camping, it would pull my utility trailer (with a bike and gear) at freeway speeds. Headwinds, or hills would bring it down to about 45 mph, but on flat windless roads it kept up just fine.

    That's quite the paradoxical statement.

    "Works fine... unless hills or headwinds" :rofl

    I've owned 20R and 22R powered vehicles too. :D

    Not really, 45 here and there in a long trip isn't really such a hardship.

    But then, my point of view was formed driving worn out 1940s cars. :D
