1972 KAWASAKI A1 SAMURAI
This is one of our current restoration projects. As you can see this bike came to us in a very poor state. The frame had been modified to take a racing tank and seat, but luckely the customer had already purchased a standard frame with some spares a few years ago.
s
The engine was stripped, the cases blasted and outer covers polished. The tolerances were checked and found to be good, so with just a set of new piston rings, gaskets and seal set it was rebuilt.
s
Most of the perished rubber and worn consumable parts had to be sourced from the U.S with some parts coming from YDS Motorcycle parts in Scotland. (see links)
s
As the wiring loom is no longer available from Kawasaki a new one was built from scratch, luckely the old one was complete but very tatty so it was used as a pattern. Final jobs were to reproduce the silver cables and fit the silencers, its now up and running!
