I was studying e-bikes when I saw a Craigslist ad for a motorcycle that had been dropped and would not start. I looked at it and before I could make an offer, the person selling it dropped the price to below that of any new e-bike. I took a chance, bought it, restored it and registered it at the DMV within 30 days. The problems were all minor, clogged petcock, metal fragments from the drop disabling the ignition pickup coil, and broken left handlebar.
It was the big brother to your bike, the Kawasaki Ninja 500R.
