That is sweet shit!!! I have a few bikes out at the farm that I'd really like to restore. Maybe one day it'll happen when I turn into an old bitch and learn to save my pennies (HA!).

You would probably like the bike I had 2 summers ago.

They were, the 750 was mounted in the same short frame as the 350 and had a top speed of almost 120mph. The 900 4 cyl/4 stroke that came out in '76 was at the time the fastest production bike on the road and was capable of exceeding 140 mph.

wanted to port my 750 H2. shop told me I had to much power for the frame already. Crack the throttle and watch the tach, speed and front end rise!

The 350 triple would always foul out unless riding double.

the 500 twin suzie would brake 100MPH also There is one in rochester mn if some one really wants one. run when striped to paint, Guy had a stroke and never put it back together.

The steering damper will either be a knob in the center of the steering head, or a small cylinder (like a shock absorber) attached to one of the forks.

Suzuki had 3 real polpular triple 2-strokers. GT380, GT550 and the old water buffalo
GT750. The only drawback to the 750 was the weight being water cooled. I used to have a 1976 2 cylinder GT500 that was a 2 stroker. Stock chain gearing that bike would do 109mph indicated. Ask Greasemonkey or Wallygator about the old Suzi. She was one hell of a bike for me in its time!

Kinda like the Kawi' 350, 500, and 750 was. Very fast triples.

once i get the money im going to get some nasty pipes for it, they have 2 choices a street pack which is 3 into 1 and makes a ton of mid range (like $530) and a race set which is 3 individual pipes that are a real high rpm pipe (like $825) i'm thinking the single only because its more affordable and for street use.
