This weeks collection comes to us from Tony DeSantis in New Jersey.
"I have many restored vintage Kawasaki's. I'm restoring all the bikes I once owned. Here are some photos. The first picture is a 1970 Kawasaki Coyote MB1-A Mini Bike. Kawasaki made this bike from 1969 to 1971. It's a pull start 3hp 4 stroke with a centrifical clutch engine made by Kawasaki but was a close copy of a briggs and stratton engine. I restored it to new original condition. The second picture is a 1971 kawasaki MT1 parnelli jones model, he indorse the mt1 the first year of production. This bike was the first of the 2 stroke mini's for Kawasaki It was later called the kv75 and was produced from 1971 to 1980 this was my the second bike I owned and it would smoke the Honda 50. With it's 75cc 2stroke engine and 3 speed auto trans. The 3rd picture is my 1972 Kawasaki G5 100. I had this bike at around age 13 and took the lights off and put kobbys on it and rode the wheels off of it. I restored this 100cc rotory valve motorcycle to it's original condition. It's even street leagle. My next restore is my 1976 Kawasaki kx125. All these old bike bring back great memories and started my motorcycle addiction at a early age that I have passed on to my son who is now 19 years old and has been racing since he was 8 years old."
