1972 Kawasaki G5 100 #02

I bought this bike after searching for a
really long time to find a close to perfect specimen.
Kawasaki's are very difficult and expensive to restore and I
didn't want a full scale project and especially one that was
rusty. I'm not sure how many of these were
produced, but this is only one of very few that I discovered that
I have replaced;
taillight assembly, carburetor cover, battery, front brake
switch, brake shoes, front & rear sprockets, chain, footpegs,
I have repaired or
refurbished; battery wiring, carburetor, inside of fuel
tank, clutch fiber and steel discs, front fork seals, points
and fuel petcock. I also put new clutch and front
brake cables on it and repaired the headlight wiring, footpeg and kickstand mount, fuel
cap, clutch lever, front forks, many nuts/bolts/washers.
And about the most massive amount of cleaning known to man.
There was 2-stroke oil residue all over this bike and a lot
of residual grease from chain oil etc. There was a gem
underneath, but I went through a ton of rags and cleaning
I found an NOS rear
fender cover and am looking for a NOS front fender.
The one on the bike is nice, but has two holes where the mud
flap was added by the original owner. Right now, the
bike starts, runs and drives excellent. I
purchased this from the original
owner and have the original title as well.
I had one of these bikes and it was
my daily transportation to and from school from our place in
the country. I had the Red F7 to ride once I got home
since it was 21.5 HP and wasn't legal for under 16 years of
