1986 kAWASAKI 454 LTD

I have a buddy looking to get rid of a 1986 Kawasaki 454 LTD. He says it needs a starter. Any idea of where I might be able to locate the part? I don't now if I am going to buy it yet. I have to investigate what else it might need. For $500, it might be fun to fix up and put a little money in to.

Would everyone not agree that it is just so sweet when someone is selling a bike and they think that the starter is blown and then you go and check out the bike and get a sweet deal on it because the battery is dead and the spark plugs were dirty!! I love it when some people just don't know crap about bikes!! 1986 Kawasaki 454 LTD with 30,000 miles, $500. Everything on the bike was in good condition except for the plugs, battery, and the tachometer cable was busted.

454's are cool. Rode one a few times. I used to own an '84 550 LTD. 6-speed shaft drive. Pretty snappy for what it was back in it's day.

Yeah. this will be my brother's first bike. I think it will be a good starter for him until he gets comfortable. Not too much power, but enough to keep up. I don't think you can beat it for a starter bike. It is in pretty good shape cosmetically, the tachometer cable is broke, but who needs a tach if you can listen to your engine, right? We got a new battery for it and plan on changing oil and giving her new plugs. The bike sat for a year, but I think all it needs is some TLC.
