Located in Newport Beach, California, Tony's 1975 Kawasaki H1F 500 is our latest featured listing. With only 7700 miles and tasteful cafe racer upgrades, this is one sharp looking classic sportbike!
Update: Now Sold!
Here is what the owner tells us about the bike
Up for sale is the last and best year of Kawasaki two stroke era. A 1975 MACH 500 H1F with only 7700 miles. A true rare blast from the past!
The bike has been upgraded with alloy wheels from a KZ series bike with dual disc added upfront and lower handlebars for a café racer look. I have the orig handlebars, wheels and factory pipes to restore the bike to original condition if you like the stock look better.
The bike has a new $750 paint job which matches orig color scheme and new tires, seat, battery, grips, levers etc. The triple carbs have been rebuilt and synchro from pro mechanic shop Mach 1 in Costa Mesa, CA. Over $6k invested in this bike!
The bike has a nice set of custom "Bill Wirges" expansion chambers who was the premier pipe tuner back in the day.. These pipes are very hard to find and are worth $600-$1200 alone. They can be sold separately if someone really wants them.
The bike has a clear title with matching numbers. Starts first or second kick and idles smooth. Oil injection works and the bike runs great!
Contact Tony by email at email@example.com or 949-351-6752 for more photos.
And here is a little video of Tony's machine breathing through those Bill Wirges expansion chambers:
The Kawasaki 500 was truly the king of the pack in it's day with 60hp and a 12.8 second quarter mile that left it's competition in the dust. This looks like a great opportunity to get your hands on a really good looking and well upgraded example for only $4750.
Good luck with the sale Tony!
