Just finished '73 Kawasaki 350 S2 triple

A guy I met at Sturgis in August gave me this abandoned bike, and I proceeded to spend hundreds of dollars on it. This is what I started with:



I thought it would be unique to paint it Kawasaki green with a purple stripe like the new ZR1200 has. But after painting it, I saw on the Kawasaki triples board that this is actually pretty common. Here's what I ended up with:



I still have some work to do to get it running right. Carb work, I hope, is all it needs. I hope I don't have to replace the crank seals, but that may have to be done.

I love the smell, the noise, the smoke. The hooligan bikes of the '70's were Kawasaki triples.

Ah memories...

Great job, man. Have the cases polished up and she'll be breaking hearts all over again.

My first bike was a Kawi triple, a 250 S1C. Such a great little bike.

Still Racing
