    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!

    thatll be neat ride once done.... 3 cylinder right?

    plans are this winter to do a complete teardown and restore it... I likely will delete alot of chrome and powder coat it all black to add to the cafe racer look!

    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 !!

    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 !!....:thumbsup::thumbsup:

    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
