If you see the "POLICEMOTORUNITS.COM Motorcycle stop by and get a picture with it and have it posted on the site.  Thanks and Ride Safe!

The "POLICEMOTORUNITS.COM" Motorcycle has Purple Harley Reflective Decals.  POLICEMOTORUNITS.COM promotes motorcycle safety through Riding safely, Proper Training, and by High Visibility of reflective decals and proper Lights on your motorcycle. 

The "POLICEMOTORUNITS.COM" Kawasaki KZ1000 Police Motorcycle was sold to Hialeah, FL Police Department from The Star City Kawasaki Dealer in Virginia, around Sept. 5, 1997.  The Hialeah Police Department designated this Motorcycle as 748.  7 for the year 1997, 48 as it was the 48 vehicle in the fleet.  748 was in service with the City of Hialeah from Sept 1997 to Oct 1999.  I have put the original unit numbers back on the motorcycle.  748 is back to original condition.  

748 can be seen at Police Motorcycle events and public events.
