THE APPEAL

Kawasaki produced it’s first complete motorcycle in 1961 - the B8 125cc two-stroke, and in 1969 they enjoyed their first World Championship win in the 125cc class and range of competition-focussed motorcycles soon followed.
Imported from the U.S. in 2018, this particular off-road bike has since been the subject of a no expense spared ground-up cosmetic and mechanical restoration in the U.K. Costing in the region of £5,000, it has not been ridden since.
In mint condition, this lightweight and responsive road-registered motocross/enduro bike would make a perfect addition to any collection, or if you don’t mind getting it dirty, a great purpose-built machine for competition use.
