We can present these perfectly restored Kawasaki H2 models here in duplicate. They come from the first two years of construction and are – in keeping with the Classic anniversary – with a shiny paint called "Candy gold" overdrawn. Très chic!
Ralf Gille built this H2 from 1972, the first model year, from a completely tinkered bastard – with numerous "New Old Stock"-divide.
The outer ribs of the cylinder heads are brushed and not polished – just like the original.
The sublime "Mach III 750! Lettering was once only available for the Japanese market.
Year of construction 1973: The Kawasaki H2A differs not only in the decor from the first year of construction, but also in the chrome-plated front fender.
The double disc brakes were once optional, but are now standard at Ralf Gille.
Oil control made easy.
The instruments that are overhauled by specialists and that are stuck here in housings from the NOS shelf are also standard.
The candle holder in the rear identifies the 1973 model.

Perfectly restored classics

Car drivers honking with their thumbs up, passers-by pausing piously, colleagues making pilgrimages to the photo studio – the unloading turns into a little spectacle every time Ralf Gille brings us one of his masterful restorations to be photographed. Classic readers will definitely remember the incredibly detailed new builds by the specialist for Kawasaki’s two-stroke and W models (see issues 6/2015 and 5/2016). This time, the restorer from Frankfurt even pleased us with two gold pieces: a completely rebuilt Kawasaki 750 H2 from 1972 and one Kawasaki 750 H2A from model year 1973. Both are presented here in their absolute original condition. And what’s more: You built in parts that are now almost worth gold. NOS is the magic word that makes enthusiasts bend their knees in awe and cross over rare material. Because “New Old Stock” stands for original stock items – unused and therefore sinfully expensive!

Kawasaki 750 H2 in the studio
Perfectly restored classics
Basic model completely tinkered with
The 1972 Kawasaki H2, which Gille built from a completely tinkered specimen, should particularly enjoy intense pats among connoisseurs. He couldn’t use anything more than the frame and some chassis components for the reconstruction. That is why this example in the color “Pearl Candy Gold” adorns many NOS parts. The exhaust system, mudguards, immersion pipes, rims, lamp holders, instrument housings, handlebar fittings and the seat, along with countless screws and small parts, come from old stock. All other components have been refurbished in such a way that they cannot be distinguished from new parts. This applies in particular to the slot-controlled three-cylinder two-stroke engine, which was completely rebuilt after the perfectionist had finally found the engine housing parts that matched the chassis number.
Exhaust is a high quality replica from Japan
The basis of the 1973 Kawasaki H2A was a parts package that was almost complete. Its exhaust is a high-quality replica from Japan, while the mudguards, seat, fittings, lamp holder, taillight unit and the candle holder attached to the rear bumper along with small parts were also taken from the NOS shelf. Ralf Gille had the “Candy Gold” paint set painted by a German specialist, and an Italian artist helped the first 1972 H2 to shine.
