2000 Kawasaki "Targa" 1000??
« on: August 11, 2014, 07:20:27 pm »
So what is it?? A Concours w/o the hard bags on it and/or the guy doesn't really know what it is or did they make a "Targa"?  A 2000 Connie would be that color, correct?

Targa made a windshield for the ZG...
<--- is there any mechanism in place to deal with a non- productive, antagonistic, former non- member such as this?

Yeah, maybe that's the only badge on the bike.
Cann't see the tail cover clear enough.
Gotta love CL....

I like my 2006 Kawasaki Madstad more, though not AS rare as the Targa.

I guess I can enjoy my '02 Silverdammit Cee Bailey almost as much as the '05 Rifle, even though neither are as rare as the Targa.
Thanks.

Looks like a 2000 C-10 with cruiser style throwover soft bags, no luggage cover over the rack. He's bs'ing or ignorant.  But it might be true, it's on the internet, Bon Jour!

This bike reminds me of the 175cc Bushwacker I had as a kid...yep...bored it out to 1200cc...that thing was fast...it would pop wheelies at 200 mph!


Or...something like that :truce:

The title on my C10's both just have the "model" as ZG1000, so that probably doesn't clue him in too much either way-title or not.
I think the biggest reason its been on there a month (or more, depending on the relisting/edit) is that $2500 for a C10 type w/o luggage side hard bags and depending on the condition of the rest of the bike, is no bargain. I would sell my '02 w/o the hard bags right now for $2500, and its in very nice shape with a brand new Shinko 777 rear tire.

well,
 I actually tried to enlighten the ad poster but they want nothing of it. Guess he knows it all already! He said it is not his bike he is selling it for a friend and for sure it is a "targa" and NOT a concours.
Wow. I guess he has the only one ever built that none else knows about!

Matt,
I was going to do the same thing in the interest of helping him have a better chance of selling it and better results in search attempt(s). But, I tried this a time or two before with CL ads for snowmobiles, etc (which I knew were incorrect) and met with almost hostility. So much for helping.
Similar deal on a "Concourse" for sale down by Wadena Mn. An '87 or whatever they said with supposedly 2500 miles. The pictures show what appear to be a 2000 model C10. Red and has the fork leg protectors, newer type brakes and the newer style gauges. Clearly post '94 model. They still have it for sale I think.
Yep:

Guy was sticking with the story on that one too.

Couldn't resist, and since Matt gave it a try at convincing him, I thought maybe if he heard it from two it would have more credibility. Even offered some suggestion on how to check the vin and engine number.
Nope. Here's the reply:
"The Targa is a rare bike, not many made, says Targa on the ferring"
I offered to buy it if it's not a concours and if he would send some decent pics and the vin number.
Because if it's that rare, it must be an underpriced collectible that every Kawasaki owner should have.

Well,
I actually sent him a second email to let him know that in fact Kawi never produced a bike called a Targa, I am pretty sure, Hell yeah I did, I put in a smart alec comment as well about that. even mentioned he could look at some pics of a concours and see the incredible similarities. I tried!
