Triple of the Month (May 2004) 

Submitter: Bob of Slinger, Wisconsin
Bike: 74 H2B

Note: This was submitted in 2003 so not sure if owner's email is valid. 

I started this project five years ago and have gotten an education in the process. It was bought in a complete non running basket case shape. It was completely restored by myself. It has all original and n.o.s. parts except the air filters, pipes and handlebars. Every possible part, screw, rivet, spoke was removed, cleaned, painted and or reworked by myself. The motor has been gone through and the current state has Denco spec. porting and some other internals. Along with Factory chambers with aluminum silencers and the filters, it is very, very strong running. There are some people that really need to be acknowledged for all the help I received over these years, without them this would have never happened. Bolek Horsepower Consultants (big thanks to Johnny and Alex), Purple Haze Racing, Fran Golden, Larry Kling (did the flawless repro paint job), Forester Signs and Graphics, Quick Bikes Racing, and last but in no way least, my two stroke guru and parts supplier Mark Kovach. The bike is a big head turner and almost all but the most massaged bikes on the street cant hold a candle to its radical quickness, proving that the king still lives.

Submitter: Redline Racing (Rider: Brian, Tuner: Larry Smith)
Bike: H2 Drag Bike

60ft	1.137
330ft 3.173
660ft 4.915
660mph 139.39
1000ft 6.442
1320ft 7.777
1320mph 170.08
The stats above tell everything about the Redline Racing H2.  Brian broke his own 1/4-mile world record with a 7.77 second at 170.08 mph at St. Louis during a Prostar 2-Stroke Super Eliminator Class in June 2004.  This is the 1st bike that broke into the 7 second bracket and is believed to be the only one. Totally incredible!  

The next 2-stroke Super Eliminator will be at Indianapolis during August. Show up if you want to witness these 30-year-old Kawasaki triples going all out.

Triple of the Month (July 2004)

Submitter: Gary of  Triplesville????
Bike: Mini H1 Dragster

This is one of the most amazing minibikes around. A real attention grabber.
Not only it was used as a pit bike but it could also laydown some rubber.
It does take some skills to handle this little monster.
Picture was taken by Y.T. at St. Louis Prostar 2-Stroke Event.
