1960s Kawasaki's let's see them

Since I've started some pic threads on the "other big three" hopefully some of you even have a few old pics or own some Kawasaki's from the '60s as well. I know they are a bit rarer than the others though.

Here's a couple of mine.
A super rare 1966 Kawasaki B8S "Super 150" in original Balboa Blue.

And Kawasaki's first dual range Trail Bike, a 1969 C2TR "Roadrunner"

1969 (although it might be a 1970) Kawasaki 238cc F21M Kawasaki Greenstreak.




Here's Eddie Lawson on his first bike - a 1969 Kawasaki G3TR. I had one just like it although it was soon converted to a District 37 desert racer.

The most famous/iconic '60s Kawasaki. A 1969 H1 500cc triple

Unfortunately this one's not mine. However I've got the '73 H1 model.

I had one of those that I bought new. If you looked at it wrong it would blow a head gasket.

An Avenger 350 from 1968 being offered at the Las Vegas auction in a couple of weeks. Definitely not something you see running around everyday!

The 1969 A7SS Avenger was a wicked fast Scrambler back in the day for Kawasaki. Not many can be found now.

I have one, not quite finished yet ( he said after twenty years of working on it).
But you're right, not many around. There is a website for them ( A1A7.com ) I have also noticed a few of the guys with triples, seem to gravitate towards these as well. Must be a two stroke thing.

Not as nice as what's been shown so far, but it's what I've got. The grey one is a 74 H1, it's gone now.

Just a little dusty from storage. This is my Dad's original first owner (him) that I am now the curator of. http://www.thejunkmanadv.com/about-the-junkman.html

1968 Kawasaki A7SS All original unrestored (just maintained) example. Runs great! I take it out a few times a season.

When you get on one of these it's amazing how light and narrow they are, the gas tank feels like it belongs on an MX bike.
