1973 Kawasaki S1 250cc triple

With the CB750 done, I needed another back-burner job to keep me busy when I had time in between customer projects. So, I bought this old S1 triple and pretty much regret it at this point. But, hey it will be a super cool bike when it is done.

The motor was seized up, water in the #1 cylinder, etc. Just a rusty mess but only 8000 miles on it so the bottom end and transmission are in good shape. I started by pulling the motor to see if it was even rebuildable and it is now in pieces. The new pistons just arrived from Japan and will be shipped off with the cylinders to be bored 1mm over. The cases are cleaned and painted and waiting for some new seals, etc. Progress is being made!
