Sometimes it’s good to be practical, logical even. A nice standard style motorcycle, or even a good dual-sport bike, can serve many purposes, from commuting to riding curvy roads on a Sunday morning to light touring. A nice two-stroke, 750cc Kawasaki H2, however, isn’t really great for any of these purposes. We want one anyway.

Loud, fast, unruly and a handful to ride, Kawasaki’s H2 was, however, an icon of its time, and the bikes are very desireable today. See our article on the (in)famous Kawi from the July/August 2006 issue here.

Our searching for a H2 led us to this 1973 model. This particular example has just been the subject of a “complete frame up restoration,” according to the listing. This included new cylinders of the stock bore size, new stock pistons, and a new Barnett clutch, along with a rebuilt master cylinder and a brake caliper.
