Description

Additional photos of this Kawasaki ELR KZ1000R are available here for your perusal.

After Eddie Lawson won the 1981 AMA Superbike Championship, Kawasaki created a limited edition model for 1982 based on the KZ1000. It was called the KZ1000R ELR (Eddie Lawson Replica), and it was an instant legend. The 1982 model had Eddie’s signature on the tank, and the decal was updated for next year’s model after Kawasaki/Kerker won the AMA Superbike Championship again a second year in a row.

It was based on the KZ1000, but was heavily upgraded a Kerker 4-1 exhaust, remote reservoir shocks, an oil cooler, wider rear wheel, upgraded cylinder heads, upgraded brakes, and 34mm Mikuni CV carbs.

Of course, it also featured a distinctive livery designed to emulate Eddie’s race bike.

This example is VIN: KZT00R000751, Engine #: KZT000E037154.

The odometer shows 49,851 kilometers (30,975 miles).

This bike comes to us from a collection in South Africa. Previous maintenance history is not known, though it looks to have been cosmetically restored with new paint on the frame, engine, and bodywork. The decals are aftermarket and the tail has the optional white Kerker decal that was provided to original owners already integrated into it.

In preparation for the listing, we had Steve the Professor clean and sync the carbs, install a new battery, change the oil/filter, install new spark plugs, install a new chain, and install a brake light switch.

Modifications:
Kerker exhaust.

Cosmetic Blemishes: please see the album up top for all known cosmetic blemishes. Here is a selection:






Inside of the tank:

It is riding on Bridgestone Battlax BT45 tires with date codes of 4417 and 4917.

The sale includes one key.

Currently located at our facility in Santa Monica, California (please make an appointment for an inspection), this Kawasaki is offered on a clean Oregon title. Have any ELR stories or questions about this listing? Let us know in the “Comments” tab!
