Wow! I love it!

Here's my sad 73 S2350, I've owned this bike since 1986, when I bought it it had really been beat on and sadly I let it sit outside for too many years. I think it's time to start pondering the idea about fixing it up, luckly all the major parts are there, I probably won't do an original rebuild on it as parts are getting harder to find.

Gotta love the 2-strokes!

Yes 3cyl., 3 sets of points and three carbs, when I did have it running it was a tough one to keep running right!

I don't want to take over your thread but it seems you may like 2-strokes. Here's a bike I completed a few years back, it's a 71 Yamaha RT1-B 360. I really enjoy riding this bike around, it like yours gets alot of attention!

That is a sweet vintage Kaw ya got there
This was my first Kawasaki (not mine in pic but exactly the same minus number plates.

& I too had the underrated RT1 360 , it was ported & polished & even though it handled like a wheel barrow with handle bars down the straights that thing flat flew it 'd keep up with my european 400's (not quite my 501 Maico)

Beautiful pics guys brings a nostalgic tear to my eyes !!

Nice job!

I have the same bike and would love to get it ridable again. I need some parts and specs. Can you give me any sources for parts and a repair manual?

Excellent find OP, looks great !!....

not my bike but had one just like it, factory production racer, the old Kawasaki's were def. some of the quickest bikes in their time, one below is a '71 (IIRC) Centurian (Green Streak) 100cc that put out 18.5 hp @ 10,250 rpm, 5 speed close ratio gearbox & these things would pull most stock 250cc's
