No before pics but when my buddy got it 25yrs ago it wasn't much to look at! I've had it 4 months and just put some icing on a slightly neglected and forgotten gem!

Just picked this up off a friend. :)

This one pic covers before AND after...








A true 'survivor' from '75. A Kawasaki s1 250 Triple. Missing the mirrors and original bars, but that's about it. 8)

Comes with a few scratches, faded paint and little dents, but I love that it's original. :)

Very cool Drewski. Congrats!
 
Nice little screamer! Not a lot of them around. Congratulations on finding such an unusual machine in such good condition!
 
Thanks guys! It is a cool little bike, but I'm not going to be able to keep it. I'm going to sell it by the Spring. Someone needs to fall in love (lust?), buy it and ride it! ;D I just truly don't have the room. :p

It would be a cool bike to ride around in the city, but it could be a fun backroad bike too. 8)

You know what, youngsters don't WANT it. That's what the last 4 guys bought it for... their sons. :eek: The kids decided they didn't want a bike at all or opted to buy a new bike. :-[

Definitely not for the 6'3" 250lb 'crowd' but it's a full sized bike. :)

I would love to have it for a resto mod long build... leave it alone and after I move I'll make a deal.
 
Here's my cb360 as it arrived last winter, and as it is right now.

Mostly a cosmetic job, plus a new front end and electrics as the the PO has crossed over the two four pin loom connectors and fried the electrics!

Here's before and after shots of my CBX550F which I have owned for over 20 years.

Before.



After.



Still a little bit of cosmetic work to do to finish, but it's where I wanted it to be, so very pleased.
 
Time to add mine in here:

Bought in October 2015 after sitting in a barn for something like 20 years.

And then a week or so after putting plates and insurance on it (back in mid September 2016).

Drewski, that needs an S1R replica chassis - same as Dave uses.......

Ha! ;D I think I'd start with a ratty one to try to replicate this. Pretty darn cool though! 8)
