Lot 345: 1988 Kawasaki EN450LTD
The late 1970s/early 1980s witnessed the birth of what are termed ‘factory customs’: models with laid-back ‘cruiser’ styling inspired by what Harley-Davidson owners had been doing to their machines for decades. Soon no motorcycle was safe from such treatment, which has even descended as far as single-cylinder 125cc learner bikes. Kawasaki’s EN450A (or LTD450) middleweight ‘custom’ was a new introduction to the Japanese manufacturer’s range in 1985. Powered by a 450cc twin that was, in effect, half a GPZ900, the EN450 pushed all the right cruiser buttons: raked-out forks, stepped seat, teardrop tank, forward footrests and slash-cut mufflers all being included in the package. An official UK import, this example is presented in good working order and offered with Swansea V5. No reserve.
