Heavy Metal: 1974 Kawasaki H1

The Kawasaki H1 was introduced in late 1968. The Sixties were in full swing, and dizzying changes in art, music and politics were taking place. Motorcycles were changing, as well.

Small is good: H1’s 498cc 2-stroke triple produced a claimed 60hp while a Triumph 750 barely broke 50hp.
