Having taken the momentous decision to commence manufacturing and marketing complete motorcycles under its own name, Kawasaki rapidly expended its range in the early 1960s, announcing its first machine in the 175cc category - the F1 - in October 1965. The F1 was a simple, piston-ported two-stroke, though it did boast the convenience of an electric starter. A short-lived stopgap, it was effectively replaced the following year by the F2, which added disc-valve induction to the package. With 18bhp on tap, the F2 had a top speed of 77mph when the smaller of the two available rear sprockets was installed. Kawasaki claimed that the sprockets could be switched in less than ten minutes using the tools supplied with the machine. The incomplete example presented here is on offered for restoration and sold strictly was viewed. Various components are missing, others damaged, and the engine is seized. A total of 7,706 miles is currently displayed on the odometer. This ultra-rare classic Kawasaki is offered with Netherlands customs declaration. No reserve.
