Your Collection: Kawasaki 175 F7

September 18, 2011 6:00am

This weeks collection comes to us from Mark Bentley in Ohio.

"This is my first bike, purchased in the summer of 1971 from Twin Falls Sportcycles in the Akron area.  It was only a few months later that I had the lights torn off and number plates installed. Twin Falls was a Kawasaki, Husky, and Penton shop that I later worked at during my college days at Akron U.  We had a pretty strong racing team mostly because the owners, Dallas and Harry were "dyed in the wool" Husky riders.  I graduated to a Penton 175 in '73 and then to KX's when Kawasaki got serious about motocross. I still have this Kawasaki 175 F7 that I restored in 1998.  I've also included a VERY RARE picture on my KX125, in front of Jerry Sales at O.I.R. in Ravenna."
