1969 Kawasaki H-1


In 1969, when Kawasaki introduced the H-1 it was like an atomic bomb going off in the motorcycle world. A completely out-of-the-box approach to motorcycling with three cylinders! Two-stroke! Electronic ignition! And the fastest production motorcycle of the year! Often nicknamed "The Widow Maker" because of its blinding acceleration and evil handling; it was also called “The Triple with a Ripple". Kawasaki had een experimenting with twins. They figured when they went to a triple, they would have to do a few things differently. Heat is the archenemy of two-strokes. They experimented and spaced the cylinders further apart. A large drum brake was fitted to the front but it was barely capable of slowing down the speed. Here is an opportunity to own the most original one in the world! With only 1.7 miles on the odometer, this is the one that all restorations will be judged against.
