You are bidding on a: 1974 Kawasaki 750CC H2 Mach IV.
This is an extremely rare offering. Even I have never seen this come around before. And I have always followed these machines.
I say rare for 3 reasons:
1) I am the original owner. The bike is original through out. Period
2) This is NOT "Restored" like most all for sale. Thiswas "maintained" by the original owner, garaged kept and continually serviced.
3) The bike color is in the rarely sold Candy Gold Brown. Seldom seen.
I could go thru all the myths about this bike. Most are true andif you're interested in bidding, you most likely heard them.
This bike is still the animal it was when I purchased it. It couldkill you. Easily, with the forty-six year old braking technology.
In forty-six years almost everything has been maintained.Originally, I could get OEM parts, then NOS, still some odd NOS about, then aftermarket. If your lookingfor an Excel spreadsheet with all the parts listed - it doesn't exist.Everything has been maintained over time. I just serviced something differentevery winter. (No winter riding here) Everything has been apart (except trans)and re-assembled. Being a mechanic, I saved most parts that didn't fail. Don'tknow why, never used them.
All I can say is -LOOK AT THE PICTURES !
The paint is all original. Tank, Sides & Rear Fender areexceptionally clean. Almost spotless. Slight left side cover paint scratches near gas petcock (see pic). Very small crease on left side cover(seepic). Frame is original. Original harness. Front fender is flawless chrome. Rims are all flawless chrome.
Engine has been apart for rings even if it didn't necessarilyneed it. Cylinders honed. Easy task for me. All metal is showroom clean. Eventhe underside. Original Kawasaski lacquer was removed from all engine covers andbuffed out by a local pro. Even forks were done. Rear hub was to be the last,but it doesn't appear that I'll be owning it this winter to do the spokerestring with SS. Carbs have been done so many times, I could do them with myeyes partially closed. Last rebuild kit was by IVAN at Rockland County Motorcycle in Congers, NY.This guy, Ivan, has perfected a 5 chamfer setup for the jet needle. It is anunbelievable rebuild!!! That 2-stroke bucking is almost eliminated when you letback on the throttle. Much faster acceleration. As if it was needed.
BelRay oil has been my lube of choice since 1974. Both transand oil injector. Never an issue with either system.
Everything works like it did when new. Still to this day. Even gotoriginal shocks. Chain oiler works if you want to make a mess.
Tires are Pirelli Sport Demon. About 2 years old but hardly anymiles. They are glued to the road with this bike. This is the only condition I've kept it in all my adult life. Don't know why,just always enjoyed it.
Mileage is 17,800
I could speak or be asked questions for hours about my bike. But Iwould never get this listing done.
The pics speak to themselves... Thebike is garaged in northern NJ
This isa collectors piece, museum quality. This is a rareopportunity to purchase this type of vintage Kawasaki, not many of thesecome up for sale. Please feel free to ask questions or request additional pics.
A $750.00 Non- Refundable Pay Paldeposit is due within 24 hours. Full payment via bank check due within 5 days and before you come to pick it up. Funds (Bank checks as well) must clear before pickup. NO PAY PAL FOR THE BALANCE!!!! Pick up due within 10 days after funds have cleared. A cash transaction would be the cleanest way to complete the transaction. I have the necessary paperwork to transfer ownership. You must have10 or more recent feedback. Bidders with 0 feed back willbe canceled. Sold as is.
A document regarding sales price, deposit amount & remaining balance will be signed by both parties upon receipt of deposit monies. Ownership Title will be shown to verify ownership but will not be filled out till all funds have cleared. This is a paper title. NOT a digital title. This should be an easy transaction.
Also, I am reluctantto let anyone ride it before purchasing it. No offense but we know nothing ofeach other and this a bike that I cannot let just anyone go out on the street toride alone. There is way too much risk for me when someone opens these carbs, hits warp speed and cannot slow down quick enough. Anyone can open it up after they purchase and see what a ride itcan be. I'll miss it...
