Saw this bike at the recent Jap bike Show and thought it was awesome just the way it was.

The Kawasaki Samurai was a class leading bike when released in 1967. The Kawasaki W1 (what the modern day W650 & W800 are modelled on) wasn’t selling as expected so Kawasaki went back to the drawing board and outgunned the competition, namely the Suzuki T250 Hustler, Honda Dream CB250 and Yamaha DS6.

These photos are from the Albany Vintage and Classic Motorcycle Club Hillclimb event held on the weekend of the 5th & 6th November 2011. Thanks to Perth Cafe Racer - Allen Read - for the pics
