1973 F7 Project

Just bought a project F7 for $150. It failed compression test, 25lbs was the best I got. Does anyone know of where I can get a top end kit. I have checked bike bandit. They have kits but the year models do not match up. Will a 1978 kit fit a 73? I will have many more questions and pictures hopefully as I progress through the project. Any information is greatly appreciated you know about these old kawasakis would be great too.

Thanks
Jake

In short I am wondering if parts are interchangeable between the 175 kawasakis?

Pics? I personally wouldn't rebuild unless it was cherry. I hope the crank is still good so you don't got to split cases anyway.

I used to ride a girl friends F7 when I was like 14. Cool little bike for what it is. I don't know much about them, sadly.

I rebuilt several back in the mid-2000s. Even tried to vintage-race one amongst my other vintage stuff. Mistake.

Back then I was surprised how much was still available from Kawasaki. Other than body and trim pieces I got everything I needed from my local dealer. That was ten years ago. It may be different now.

I'd also poke around on some of the vintage swap meet boards. The F7 isn't considered rare like a Bighorn or an F11. There's stuff out there.
