Back in the seventies the two stroke ruled the roost, I paid 300 GBP for a used H1A. It would try to kill me most days, it was a lot of power for a 19yo kid with no fear. It would hole the middle piston on occasion which made me sell it on eventually. I always look to buy another but these days good ones sell excess of 10,000 GBP. Hindsight is a wonderful thing. If I could have any bike, it would be this one.

I had that exact bike for three days, bought used, it would have killed me.

I replied in post #3, but thanks to the pic of the 71 H1, I am going to append to that post.

High school bud took me for a ride on one of those 71 H1As before I had my license. Neither of us had helmets, steep/tight/twisty CT mountain road, wheelie out of every turn, not sure I was ever so scared or ever so exhilerated (is that a word?) in my life.

Bought my first Kawasaki triple (a wrecked 74 H2) when I could afford it, at 19. Since then I have owned at least twenty of them.

All but one was bought as a project; only one was a running bike. Usually, I buy a project bike, work on it for a year, get it running, ride it a little, and somebody stops me and wants to buy it--can't tell you how many times that has happened.

I currently have enough parts to put together one, maybe some day two, all thoroughly disassembled, and hope to put one together in the next year.

Every time I go to Mid-Ohio Vintage Days and visit the Kawasaki Triples Club guys, I am inspired anew. Some amazing restorations and resto-mods, great old guys riding beautiful old bikes. If you are interested, check out https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/kawasakitriples/
and search for Mid-Ohio.

Best, Rich

I already own an '04 RC51 SP2 (Pic 1) but I've always secretly lusted for an earlier black framed SP1 model all tarted up in the RWB Colin Edwards Laguna Seca WSBK racing livery and there's currently one for sale at a reasonable price that's not all that far away from where I live (Pic 2).

Just installed those GPR Albus pipes not too long ago. Used to run a set of c/f and titanium Sato Racing low mount pipes but someone hit my bike at a gas station while I was inside paying for the gas and broke the left side pipe.

The Sato's were super light weight and trick and all but they stuck out so damned far behind the bike that I would often catch a leg on one of the exhaust pipe tips as I walked around the back of the bike.

The GPR's are well made and tuck in nice and tight to the bike which I really like. The white ceramic coating on the cans matches up rather nicely with the paint scheme too and they look as though they were always meant to be there.

While the Sato's were low and woofy these GPR's are much higher pitched and grumbly. Sweep the tach past 5 grand though and these pipes come on song and sound glorious. Definitely gotta use the db killers in these pipes because I tried them without and they were just stoopid loud.

I hear you Rich. It's hard to describe the feeling.

Few years ago I was looking through some old stuff and came across the original 'Motor Cycle Mechanics' magazine dated 1969, in it was the first UK road test of the H1 MACH III. I thought someone should have this piece of history so put it up for free on Kawasaki Triples Forum, an American was first to respond, he had several H1 & H2's so it went to the right place. I asked on the forum if anyone knew of my H1 - RSP 39K, it was last taxed the year before therefor still running, that made me feel good.

I'll check out your link.

It's been 40 years, omg.
