Kawasaki H2B 750

Practical Sportsbikes (UK) - - Buying -

First the good stuff. The frame and swingarm have been pow­der­coated. The forks have been re­built. The cases have been blasted, as have the heads and two bar­rels. Now the bad; the third bar­rel was dropped and dam­aged so he’s bought an­other, but it needs bor­ing and a match­ing pis­ton. It’s also miss­ing a seat and it’s not reg­is­tered. H2s make strong dough, but this needs strong money spend­ing on it too.

Gary says: Never un­der­es­ti­mate the cost of rechroming pipes, mud­guards and wheels. This part-fin­ished resto could quickly spi­ral into a costly project; maybe the seller has re­alised this and is cut­ting his losses. If it’s cheap – un­der £3500 – it’d be worth hav­ing. But only then.

Much of it done, but by no means all of it

Blasted beauty Pricey to fix
