Kawasaki Mach III 500
My next bike(s) were a pair of H1 Mach III triples that looked exactly
like the two borrowed pics on this page. Known as the Hiroshima Screamer,
these 500cc two-stroke triples were notorious for severe acceleration
and truly sinister handling.
thirsty, noisy, and smelly, they were a lot of fun in small doses but
not very practical. I used the later-model green bike as a parts machine
only, but never managed to get either engine running as well as I wanted
to. I chose to sell them again before outlaying the money required for
major engine and electronic ignition work.
