1972 Kawasaki H2 KH750 for sale, often referred to as “The Widow Maker” due to its terrifying handling and ease of acceleration. Still undervalued and a whole load of fun to be enjoyed from the ultimate tearaway hooligan machine of choice from Japan. These three cylinder two strokes are still great fun to own and ride and a very undervalued, as investment grade examples are extremely rare. True, they are not the best handling machine because of the long, flexible swing arm, but with modern tyres and an awareness of speedo readings they are still a joy to ride.

However, this is not the case, the power band on all large capacity two stroke motorcycles from Japan of this era was designed to deliver torque not wheel spins and wheelies. Most examples now have powder coated frames, incorrectly assembled and set up motors and have lost their original parts, but not this example. Apart from having had a beautifully crafted light touch restoration, it is a highly original two stroke classic motorcycle.
