Additional photos of this 1972 Kawasaki H2 are available here for your perusal.
The king of Kawasaki’s two-stroke triples, the H2 Mach IV has a reputation that has stood the test of the time – Team Green even brought the H2 name back for their insane new supercharged sportbike.
The H2 750 is remembered fondly thanks to a peaky, narrow powerband and handling characteristics that earned it the affectionate nickname of “Widowmaker”. The H2 was capable of knocking out a quarter mile in 12.0 seconds – faster than a Hemi Cuda – thanks to 74 horsepower.
It weighed 423 pounds dry and topped out at 126 miles per hour. For more on the characteristics that gave this bike the Widowmaker moniker, head on over to Motorcycle Classics.
The seller states that the paintwork and motor build were done by a restorer in Minnesota though he cannot recall who at this time. He notes that the restorer used a little bit more chrome than stock, and we also note a steel braided brake line.
