Description 1973 Kawasaki S1 250 Mach 1 triple restored to resemble my 1972 Kawasaki H2 750. This is a matching number 1972 Kawasaki H2 750 survivor project bike. If the established manufacturers were surprised by the speed of the new 2-strokes, such as Yamaha's R3 350-cc parallel twin, they were completely blindsided by the Kawasaki triples. They turned to the , a project begun in June, 1967, whose intent was to design the most powerful production motorcycle engine in the world. Also check out our at Bikez. The bike is not running but the engine turns over with good compression. Next I removed the carburettors.
This bike comes with a clear title and is in running order. And there was a very respectable taillight, large enough to keep tailgaters at bay. Gas tank has some paint blemishes,no dents. I then stored the part in a relevant bin ready for the next stage, a good clean up, replate, replace, that sort of thing. Don't miss a rare opportunity to own one of these ultra rare bikes.
The bike has 15,637 miles on the odometer. Up for sale is a 1975 Kawasaki Z1B 900. I just had one piece missing which they could not find. Do not miss an excellent opportunity on a running, turn key H2 while you can still find one. The new model did indeed sell well with young men in the late 1960s, with total production eventually exceeding 110,000 units, though it was unpopular with authorities.
If you are serious about wanting to own one here is your chance to own one for the price of an H1 500, get it while you can. These are getting hard to come by in original condition. The bike is 100% original down to the airbox. In addition, each model year following was met with toned down performance in attempt to meet new emissions regulations. Time to bolt on the newly chromed exhaust system. No title, bill of sale only. Small tears in seat otherwise very clean and comfy.
This bike comes with a title. A pair of glasses for eye protection, rubber gloves ditto for hands and got stuck in. The front tire is okay to ride on, but will need replaced soon. The right side pipes have a few scrapes on them and the left have some acid staining but there is no rust out on any of the original unstamped pipes. Miss the bike, miss the sound, the blue smoke, miss the fouled plugs. Category - Engine - Posted Over 1 Month This motorcycle is in very nice condition actually amazing condition considering it is not restored and still has it's original paint. I painted mine canary yellow with snakes in the tank and side covers.
It would sell 80,000 units in the next two years and ultimately outlast the screaming 2-stroke triples. The chassis has also been a trend to provide greater stability through increased hunting and the wheelbase. All I needed now was the new paintwork. It is complete except for two missing pieces: the rear-tail light and the left-side cover. The battery is a few years old but is fine and will charge up in no time.
There may be some defects to the part as described above or as seen in the pictures in the listing. This is a non running project bike. No need for a big battery, as the S2—and the others—had a kickstarter. The back brake is completely seized as well as the engine; I don't know. This bike will be sold with a bill of sale, there is no title.
The sleek fuel tank was enlarged for 1971 and efforts were made to strengthen the frame. Exhaust looks good but has some small dings and rust and pitting. Usually starts on the first or second kick. It is strictly reference material for personal use, and may not be reproduced, distributed, transmitted or sold in any form without the prior written consent of P. When the A7 appeared, the factory claiming some 40 horsepower, the quarter-mile fanatics were going through the lights in under 15 seconds.
The Speed Triple sports the kind of specification you would expect from a top-of-the-range naked sportster. We both extended the fork tubes 10 inches. Oil injection is installed and working properly. Bit of a catch 22 really. This bike is a very original survivor in fantastic condition.
