Synopsis

The Kawasaki Triples Bible covers the entire production of three cylinder two-strokes from 1968 to 1980, featuring a year-by-year breakdown of bike specs, including the KH250, 350 S2, KH400, H1 500 and H2 750 models.
Illustrated with hundreds of archive photographs and period adverts, plus personal memories from some of the racers and tuners who got the best from the fearsome H1R 500 and H2R machines in Europe and the USA, as well as road riders who owned the triples back in the 70s. There are technical tips and advice from experienced Kawasaki triple enthusiasts and club members worldwide, plus information from some early dealers in the Kawasaki marque. The book also contains useful advice on spares availability, tuning, future market values etc. and tries to capture the essence of what made the Kawasaki triples the most rebellious, kick-ass two-strokes of their time.
This unique book is an invaluable resource for any collector, restorer, or just a fan of these fabulous two-stroke motorcycles.

Independent Reviews

"An invaluable resource for any collector, restorer, or just a fan of these fabulous two-stroke motorcycles." British Dealer News

"It's an excellent read and a guide to the entire background and history of these amazing machines that are now highly coveted by collectors and Triples fans. It was worth the wait!" webbikeworld.com

"This personal intimacy stands out in the 160 pages of this hardback volume with good use being made of period images and brochures, magazine covers as well as some nicely detailed modern shots of restored bikes, both static and in action. The excellent layout allows you to dip in and out of the book at will to research particular areas should you wish to use it as a reference work." inter-bike.co.uk
