Kawasaki's W800 has received an all-change make over from German customs and accessories experts, LSL. The list of alterations is extensive, including bespoke triple trees on the stock 39mm forks, improved front brakes with a 300mm Galfer wave-style disc and steel braided hose, LSL’s own ‘Scrambler’ bars, dual-sport Pirelli Scorpion tires and YSS shocks among many more. 

UK-based Moto Evolution will soon be manufacturing LSL bikes within these fair shores, so bikes as utterly cool as this one might be avaliable to you, soon.

I kind of sort of like it. But 'six days'? Surely no one is racing these things off road?

A friend of mine bought a W800 from a kwaker dealer and within 1400 miles the push rod tube was peeling its chrome ,the exhausts were pitting and the lacquer was peeling from the engine casings and the rocker covers exposing bare alloy ,the alloy could be scratched off with a finger nail,(the bike was dry stored over the winter period) the dealer contacted Kawasaki (post Tsunami)and the buck was generally passed around until the only answer was to part ex for another bike .
I dig this flat tracker style of bike but no Kwaker thanks !!
Any one got an old Yam xs 650 or a Honda dommie they dont want???

I bought a dommie with a view to tracker styling it but its such a good cold weather bike as-is I can't bear to take the grinder to it. Also the wheels have an odd number of spokes so alternative rims aren't easy to come by. A vigor or freewind might make a cheaper and easier donor bike. And they can only really be improved, looks-wise...

That looks just so right. I'd love one, in green.
