"The Fastest Kawasaki Triple 750". NOPE, actually, 'The Fastest Kawasaki Twin Triple 1,500". Typical Wirges misinformation.

Before anyone asks, the wheels ARE NOT Morris Mags. They are magnesium, and made by a fellow that did them in San Diego, Ira Hassad, before Elliot Morris made his 7 spoke wheels.

Still, well worth owning, but, not for that price. It'd make a fun coffee table stand, thought, just like "The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe" injected triple engine, 12 cylinder Honda bike did in Russ Collins' office.

Russ Jr is restoring that bike. There is a thread on the SOHC forum.

I am fully aware of it. It was a coffee table when I went to work for Russ, and I worked on the "Blow Job", (The Sorcerer, the twin engine V8), also, the single case Hottels V8 engine that Terry Vance got banned, and the inline 4 rear engine bike. We actually used the Hottels engine at shows to irritate Vance into demanding no new bikes had over 4 cylinders, nothing over 2,000 cc's. It worked, Vance took the bait, and we built the rear engine bike, engine, drive, trans, clutch, rear end, the whole bike, all from scratch.

In the last 4 hours here, my neighbor gave me a complete roller chassis H1D, with tank, tail section, side covers, full roller. It was completely free, no cost, and it was an engine donor to Bob Braverman's H1 Sidecar this same neighbor bought almost 8 years ago. He sold the "chair" (complete sidecar) some years ago, never did restore it.

I have a nice, liquid cooled H2 hot rod engine I am going to put in this H1 chassis, should be a fun canyon carver bike.

liquid cooled H2 engine on H1 frame would be a killer in Topenga canyon roads :shh:

JP, Topanga Canyon Road is so congested, it literally is a 20 mph to parking lot area now.

We have a nice "street" race here every year near Virginia City, not far away from where I live. I've ridden the event 3 times of late, won all 3 times on my"enhanced" RZ500.

am not surprised it's the same now on the nice twisty roads not far from Paris.
Shame as in the old times the twisty road on Topenga canyon was fantastic during the week nearly nobody :(
