    Good thing the one owner decided to keep a pipe to make the bike safer.

    awesome. So when are you delivering it to my house (I wish). I would love to hear the storys that ol girl has to tell.

    If the sum total of all your motorcycle experience had been 50-175cc machines like the honda 160 and bridgestone 175, then a 750cc two stroke like the h2 would scare the shit out of you too. Such was the case with most of america in the early 1970s where the only bikes were small displacement things like the honda 160, 305, 350, brit singles and twins, and harleys which despite their torque weighed half as much more than the h2. It didn't have the highest top speed, it didn't have good manners, what it had was a harsh acceleration hit and a rapid acceleration that kept pulling till after redline. It didn't get its reputation because it was super fast, it got it because it was hard to ride by riders who were either used to 4 stroke twin and singles torque or just plain not used to managing a harsh motorcycle. the H2 stands as a pillar of how a not very powerful bike by today's standards (75hp approx) can still require advanced riding skills. people used to say the honda cb750 was too fast with its out of the box 13 second 1/4 mile times, but unlike the h2 the cb750 was manageable.

    btw, most of the cases I have read involving motorcycle deaths in the 1970s revolve around a kawasaki triple of some sort. Did you know that the h1 was directly responsible for fuel doors and later locking gas caps?
