This is a recently built 70's hotrod H2 built with the parts which were the norm at the time. I owned it in the USA and imported it to UK in the late 90's. Its a 1974 H2B which has a low mileage ( no more than 1000 miles I think ) Paul Gast "120 bhp" top end with Wiseco pistons. The bottom end was in good shape having had an overhauled crankshaft in the past and the speedo currently shows 14800 miles. 34mm Mikuni powerjet carbs with FBG "road" pipes are fitted and were part of the original kit. This was the "over the counter " kit to have in the USA in the 70's after Denco moved on - and was in its day hugely expensive ! The bike has Lester wheels with larger Dunlop Qualifier tyres to suit. The bike was completely gone through and has some powdercoating and plating along with some items which had been rechromed before I bought the bike originally. It has new paint - top quality and decals - top quality - looks great - . chain. sprockets. fuel tank cap. front brake overhaul - cylinder and caliper with braided lines. various rubber parts etc to the tune of £1200 and a lot of hours work.
I had the FBG kit and whilst the bike is repainted new in Denco colours it has the original FBG badges on the cylinders so I left it that way. It currently has a shorter incorrect H2C seat which will be replaced by an H2B one when it is ready.
The bike runs fine and has MOT. I have the necessary paperwork - US title - to register on an age related plate and will obtain the Nova registration permit for the new (first UK) owner when the bike is purchased.
I restored this bike to use but due to change in circumstances now I will almost never have time to ride it. so its better off it has a new owner to love it.
This bike looks and rides great. but dont forget that its a 70's two stroke and not a CBR 600 ! I was fortunate enough to have owned a Denco in the past and have ridden others set up like this one - they can sometimes make up to around 90hp at the rear wheel when set up on a dyno which is more than sufficient in the 70's chassis ! At 90 hp the H2 motor retains is reliability with its bulletproof bottom end but revs hard and cleanly up the rev range virtually eliminating the surging of the stock motors in the process. Its actually what the motor would have been had it not been strangled by the then EPA and is a much nicer motor than stock. I do have some Denco pipes which are a bit louder but which will make more power which I may sell with the bike if the purchase price is offered.
I can arrange to ship to Europe maybe other countries at buyers cost. Please ask. The bike will be available to view at Classic Bikesearch near Stockbridge Hampshire from this coming weekend (4th Jan)
Call me 07967 932304 or drop me a message if you wish to arrange to view or have any questions.
This bike looks. runs and sounds great - its a real headturner and will be a blast to own for the coming summer ! Thanks for looking !
