The Kawasaki Triples Bible covers the entire production of three cylinder two-strokes from 1967 to 1980, featuring a year by year breakdown of bike specs, including the KH250, 350 S2, KH400, H1 500 and H2 750 models. Illustrated with hundreds of archive photographs and period adverts, plus personal memories from some of the racers and tuners who got the best from the fearsome H1 500 and H2 750 machines of the 60s and 70s, this is an invaluable resource for any collector or restorer of these fabulous motorcycles. With information provided by Kawasaki Museum, acknowledged experts such as Rick Brett and Dave Marsden, and lifelong Kawasaki triples owners, it defines the enduring appeal of the models. It also contains excellent tips on spares, tuning, rebuilds etc., and captures the very essence of what made the Kawasaki triples the most rebellious, kick-ass two-strokes of their time.
