message I received from Max, "un caro saluto da max (Rome Italy)."
Here is a
Triple of the Month from Italy. Appearing is a rare '72 H2 in "gold"
very nice blend of modifications and stock preservation. Gold mags
the stock "gold" bodywork; stock pipes; dual-front disk setup;
shocks; super bars; and just overall a very stylish and aggressive
One can tell that this is not a US bike because of the larger lisence
and a strap around the seat. Keep up the good work Max!
Hybrid, this bike has the blood of all the Japanese Big Four. The motor
is standard and was taken off a KH500. The front end is from a Yamaha
(2-stroke, 4-cyl Grand Prix); tank and fairing were borrowed from a VT
Honda; the seat came off a Honda dirt bike; the monoshock swing arm is
from Suzuki but with Kawasaki shock and the wheels belonged to Honda
No info on the pipes but let's just assume they are non-Kaw family to
out the big 4 Japanese bike makers. With the Kawasaki GPZ bodywork for
a final dress to transform this KH500 into a new specie.
There is no doubt about the countless time, effort and money that were required to put such a special project like this one together. We hope to hear some performance feedback from John in the near future regarding his Hybrid.
beautifully painted graphics and the shiny surfaces on this bike, but
soul of this machine is the nasty, mean, and ferocious 2-stroke
engine. Bill Baxter, a Texan, has piloted his H-2 in Oklahoma City -
Super Eliminator to victoriously dominate in his first national
The bike ran with a record low of 8.10 seconds / 166 mph in a
-- that is frighteningly fast. We look forward to seeing more of this
H-2 in the future.
Noticed the Purple Haze Racing logo on the cylinder head and tail plate.
look at this
"purple beauty" and who doesn't want one? The only trouble
could another one in this condition exist anywhere? The second factory
Kawasaki disc brake really enhances the looks and is very useful when
to stop all that H-2 power. This bike inherits just about all the
NOS parts in 1998 and it runs great according to David.
triples: '70 H1, 2 '73 S1's, '74 H
orig miles, this nicely modified H2 is equipped with: Factory chambers,
K&N filters, 75 swing arm, repainted orig color with reproduction
and custom seat for those hard acceleration blasts. Dave also has
all the original stuff saved.
Watch out for PHR ported power plant with 0.060 over weisco pistons comming soon.
|A charcoal gray H1 in this condition, parking in a nicely landscaped yard, is really a double bonus. The other available color for 1970 H1's is candy red. Noticed that turn signals are optional for early H1's -- this bike doesn't have any. Also, equiped with stock gray cables which are quite rare today. The picture appears blueish because of the reflection from the sky.|
|This bike was built by Boots Triples in San Diego, California. A Vintage Racer which is equipped with: braced frame, expansion chambers, wider rims & tires, updated suspension, and finally kicked out with mild porting. But as it turned out being so nice, Glen has decided not to take it to the track and risk crashing it. Should we blame him?|
|It is hard to believe that 30 years have gone by and the original fearsome '69 Mach III is still delivering loads of excitement to our lives. This beautifully kept '69 H1 reflects all of its originality and rarity. Being "King" of the road when it was born, the Mach III is still "King" to many of us today. This bike doesn't appear to equip with turning signals and that was the way Kawasaki shipped the early H1's -- Signals were an option.|
The bike was found in a cellar by Jochen's friend in a relatively good condition, but not in original colors. The project started in 1990 with a long list modifications. Fuel tank, seat and rear end in polished aluminum ( handmade ). Front & rear fenders , frame and fork are original.
this picture is original but changed with "Fast by
Engine breathes with 3 Yamaha DT 400 optimized flow channels carburetors. 68 HP´s on DynoJet at rear wheel while maintaining stock pistons with slight port modifications. Tail-light holder is from cutted Honda CB 500 Four with Hella tail-light. Finally, with Koni shocks and Excentric polished aluminum swing arm to launch this triple into a class of its own.
|A restored H2 that is done properly. John is the original owner who finally took that big step to attack the restoration project and actually finished it. Before that, the H2 had been in a state coma since 1978 at his mother's garage. The engine id is H2E07425 and frame id is H2F07408. According to John, this beauty has turned out to be better than expected and ton of memories are becoming more vivid everyday.|
Ron has been owning this mint Mach IV for 21 years and looks like he'll continue to cherish it. Ron is also a big fan of the classic 4-cylinder KZ650.
