I picked this up in early July.   1972 Kawasaki MT1 / KV75. 

Needs a few items, but runs great.   It's making a fun little cottage toy for now, but couldn't help myself ---had to sand some of the wretched blue flame paint off the exhaust heat shield, chainguard, rear fender and headlight, and start cleaning it up a little.    This winter it'll be taken apart, cleaned, repainted in it's original glorious orange, and of course brought back the cottage.






Not quite "dream garage" material, but boys and their toys eh?



You've teased us with the T500 cafe...show more please.
