1981 Kawasaki KZ440 ltd...Will this work? I am 6'6" I live in NYC and am looking for my first bike. Is it possible for me to fit on this bike comfortably or is it going to be an issue? Also, if it is an issue are there any suggestions? Thanks

As far as I can find the 440 has about the same seat height as my CSR 1000 though it may be a little more cramped but I am 6'4" and comfortable on my bike. It is possible it could be comfortable or not to you, depends on personal preference of riding position. I would recommend trying to sit on one and if you do feel a little constricted go with a larger KZ like a 1000 CSR or LTD. I have rode several smaller cruisers that I didn't care for because of my height but I enjoy the stance of my bike.

I'm 5'6", and I'm cramped. Then again, I have a 34" inseam so......I just kick my feet out on the top of the pegs of Frankenbike.
