Kawasaki's 750cc was built to take on the 750s from Norton, Suzuki, Moto Guzzi and Ducati. The Mach IV rider experienced the two-stroke triple's output 74 bhp in a narrow, 2,800 rpm powerband all the while surrounded by a blue haze of two stroke smoke. He also had to stop at gas stations frequently, barely achieving 20 mpg.
The odometer shows 8,300 miles on it, apparently the owner rode it from 1973, when they purchased it new to 1977, when mom got to store it. No word on what happened during Thanksgiving dinner. Wonder if it got a place at the table?
I have to include this one last close up of the tank. You just don't see anything painted in that combination of purple, orange and red anymore...
Gianni is Daily Turismo's Pacific Northwest correspondent. He's a lifelong Alfista and grew up riding two-stroke dirt bikes in rural Washington State when no one cared where you rode off road. He wrote this bio in third person, but isn't nearly clever enough to make witty jokes about it. Vote for Manuel, in reverb we trust.
