I’ve been toying with the idea of posting this custom ’76 Kawasaki KH100 for some time and decided today to bite the bullet and push it live. This is definitely a custom bike that will get mixed opinions so please be sure to share your thoughts at the endof the post.

The Kawasaki KH100 is powered by a 100cc, 2 stroke single producing around10.5hp and was capable of 65mph straight off the factory floor. In stock dress they weigh in at around 85kg but this one looks like it would be significantly less…I’m sure it would be even lighter without quite so many lights!

I can’t help but think that a different head/tail light combo would really make this bike. As it stands though the treatment of the tank, those great looking wheels and that lovely big chrome expansion chamber make this Cafe Racer very hard to miss.

As I said I’m torn as to whether I like it or not. Let us know what you think by adding your two cents in the comment box below.
