    Not more than about $600 if running.

  • Not only did Kawasaki not make a shaft drive in 1976, but in 1976 it was a 900c bike.  The KZ1000 wasn't produced until 1977, and 1979 was the first year they added the ST, the shaft drive model.  You left out far too much information about it's condition to suggest a price. The major factors affecting the price of a bike this age are:

    Does a clear, transferable title exist?

    Is the engine stuck?

    Does it run?

    Has it been in an accident?

    Is it a sought after model?

    How many miles are on it?

    Has it been modified or does it have all its original parts?

    Is it showroom condition or a basket full of rusty parts?

    These are common sense questions that need answers to negotiate the value any vehicle with a buyer.

    The SALE PRICE is whatever you can negotiate with the person who is selling the motorcycle.

    Replace all of the obviously bad stuff and get it running. Then, if it leaks oil, advertise it as "running, but leaks oil."

    If it cannot be started and test-ridden then it’s junk until proven otherwise.

    So scrap value only, with deductions from that starting point for the costs of transporting it, and for disposing of the hazardous waste (old lubricants, any asbestos brake linings, and the old tyres). You’d be lucky to see $30 USD if a specialist motorcycle dismantler buys and collects it, and $60 USD if you deliver it to them.

    There’s also very few of those bikes left on the road, so very little demand for it as spare parts.

    But get it running, put a safely-usable set of tyres on it, and it’s suddenly worth at least hundreds of $$.

    Whatever price the buyer and seller agree upon, not a penny more

    Couple of hundred bucks (if that). Non running bike - you don't know if the engine is any good. See if they're selling any on eBay.
