A Kawasaki bobber.

I guess one can make most bikes into bobbers.

That looks like a blue collar bobber kit.

They make quality parts and kits. Check out their website and how many inexpensive models can be transformed.

That's a sweet little Honda, well done..!

I think the last Kawasaki I had was a Z9 back in the early 80's.. A cool bike but cornering at high speed was like being on a fairground ride..

Cheerio,

I had a rebuilt KH400 2 stroke between about 2006 and 2010. It was amazing for a 400 performance wise, when warmed up (and it had stopped laying a smoke screen) 32 miles per UK gall, and a nasty habit of forks flex where the forks would lock up on bumpy sharp corners... Not as nasty as the CD175 where the frame was made of rubber...

I had the H1 Kawi in '69, bought it new, rode her for 1100 miles then sold her, paid $1,100.00 sold for $1,050.00 There was a reason why it was called a "widow maker".The worst handling bike I ever rode but extremely fast. She did 0-60 in 4 seconds straight out of the box.
