Hey Tom,

First let me say how much I enjoy your website and message board. I found your site about a year ago but didn't realize you had a message board until a couple of months ago. Wish I had known about it a long time ago. Keep up the good work.

On to the bike. I have a 1970 H1 I purchased about a year and a half ago. It was mostly stock then, just a set of chambers. (Dencos I think)
Since then I have put in tapered steering stem bearings, added the clubman handle bars and changed out the mirrors. I raised the forks in the clamps and improved the handling. Added a modified left hand caliper up front and swapped the fork legs so the calipers are behind the fork. Ran stainless
lines when I added the second disk and caliper. The solo seat is a Team Vansen (might be Hansen) "big butt" race seat from Airtech. Tailight is the stock piece recycled. The green paint is rattle can Kawasaki Green frame paint (everybody's on a budget). Stickerpoint stickers and custom white circles basically complete the cosmetics for now. I added an electronic speedometer to the bike and removed the stock speedo, that's what the zip
ties on the right fork are for. The rearsets came with the bike and bole on to the rear frame loops. In the engine I replaced the plastic clucth
throwout with a later model metal one. The bike came with brand new Branett
springs and plates which took a while to break in but are great now. New tires and chain and a lot of TLC are about the only other things I've done. In 18 months and about 6000 miles the only parts I've had to replace are fluids. Cleaned the K&N air filters and constantly retighten things.

Future mods include new shocks or a monoshock, cartridge emulators or late model forks, a custom aluminium dash (already fabricated) tocenter mount the tach. A white stripe the length of the bike and a full on race fairing from Airtech. I'm in the process of modifying some newer foot controls as rearsets. Clip ons, new headlight brackets and an interim cafe fairing.  Currently I'm running premix since my oil pump is out, but I intend to put the pump back on as soon as I get it fixed.

Well I think that covers everything. Again great board and site, keep up the good work and let me know what you think.
