Here you will find more information on the bikes at our stand at the Carole Nash Classic Motorcycle Mechanics Show 2017. These three classics are beautiful and we hope you enjoy!

1971 Kawasaki H1 500 LC Four Cylinder

Hand made by Allen Millyard, This bike has a 4 cylinder water cooled engine based on the original Kawasaki 500 triple bottom end, but with an extra cylinder on the left. The crankcases were then adapted to fit two top ends from a Yamaha RD250LC making its capacity 500cc. I was invited to enter this bike into Salon Privé Concourse d Elegance at Blenheim Palace September 2017 where it was awarded the most OTT motorcycle in show. I have since ridden it to the Isle of Wight and a few short rides since. The engine produces a distinctive power band from 7000.

Kawasaki S2A 350 Four Cylinder

Hand made by Allen Millyard, I have always liked the Kawasaki S2 350 triple but decided to make this one into a four cylinder in my usual fashion. By using KH250 cylinders bored +1mm its capacity is still 350cc. I’ve ridden the bike around 900 miles since completion in July this year and it is returning 45 mpg at normal road speeds. See the September edition cover story in Classic Motorcycle Mechanics magazine for a detailed road test and report.
