This bike was the stuff of dreams for some of us a few years back.
Come on this shouldn't be too hard...
What is it?

Looks like a 900 Kawasaki engine. Could it be some kind of Rickman kit? Maybe around '75?

Hi Dad, yes the engine is Kawa. The DOHC sign on the cover gave that away.
I knew it would be a serious hint!
Luckily I did a good job of erasing every other sign and logo on the bike :D
In any case you re pretty close about the year (just a few years off) but it's not a Rickman :rolleyes:
Actually it's much better than a Rickman Kawasaki of the time....I'm afraid I gave it away now....:hurl:

Not Bimota is it? Were they even around then?

I am obviously guessing... taxing my failing memory.;) :D

Hi Dad, I became Dad as well on Wednesday!!!
My wife Xenia gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on Wednesday 8/10 and I can't even describe my feelings! It's our first baby,
and we are really happy!!
I just wanted to share my feelings with you folks :)

I'm so happy I'll give it away.

Yes it's the 1978 KB1 the first Bimota with Kawasaki (1000)engine.
The best of the best of its time, and a very collectable bike today.
Specs:
1016cc, 81 PS, 220Kg, 233km/h top speed.
It was built from 1977 to 1981.
Here is the original picture.

Many congratulations!! I found, personally, the first month not to be too much fun, but when she gets a personality, its all over. In fact, its so much fun we might be heading into a second one early next year.
