Description

Additional photos of this Kawasaki A7 are available here for your perusal.

The A7 Avenger was one of Kawasaki’s earliest models, though upon its release was a pretty advanced and noteworthy machine. The 350 – technically 338cc – was a bored-out version of the marque’s quarter-liter A1 Samurai. The A7 would lay the foundation for what would become the S2 Mach II, the first of Kawasaki’s legendary two-stroke triples.

Kawasaki was the last of the big Japanese four to enter the motorcycle market, an effort that began when the Kawasaki Aircraft Company acquired a large share in the Meguro Manufacturing Company. Meguro was one of Japan’s very first motorcycle companies, first opening shop in the 1930’s around the time the industry began to see exponential growth on the island. Following a financial crash in the US, Meguro capitalized on the opportunity to snatch-up drawing, tooling, and other vital production knowledge from Harley-Davidson. This included info on heat treatments and general intel on large-scale production – an area of expertise the Japanese have since excelled in.

This example is VIN: A721928.

The VIN sticker on the frame has come apart.

The odometer shows 16,631 miles.

The seller acquired it 13 years ago from a private party with the intent of restoring it, however he has decided that he’s not going to get around to it and he wants to find it a new home. He has not tried to start it, the motor does not turn over with the kick starter.
