  • Allen Millyard 1003cc 4-cylinder
  • Stunning bespoke build
  • Featured in March 2003 Classic Bike magazine
  • Just 2 owners from new

This is a 1972 H2, that was first registered for the road in May 2003. This is because the owner at the time, John Edge (a renowned member of the Classic Kawasaki Club) had built and restored the bike from the ground up, using OEM Kawasaki parts where possible. He has sadly passed away since. This H2 has been painted in Gloss Black, with Red and Silver graphics, a homage to the original H2 graphics, but in an alternate colour scheme. This is complemented by a lovely Charcoal Grey suede seat.

You will see that the space where the oil tank used to reside has been modified to hold a Bacardi bottle. This is a little nod to the owner, John Edge, who liked the occasional tipple. The chrome-work is in fantastic condition. You can tell it has been dry-stored and not used much until the current vendor purchased the bike. Since entering into the current vendor's ownership, the H2 has been sent to Spa Motorcycles, Cheltenham, for full recommissioning and now is running and riding very well, with invoices on file.

The front brakes are twin discs with 6-pot Pretech calipers, and drum brakes to the rear. The frame and front forks are from a standard H2, but the rear swing-arm is a period aftermarket piece by Metmachex. The exhaust system is completely custom chrome, necessary with the change from a 3 to a 4-cylinder design. There are countless other bespoke touches and little details that you will notice as you examine the mechanicals. Allen Millyard’s work is simply incredible with such limited space and tools. The H2 is running well and ready for its new owner and comes complete with a current V5C and invoices for work carried out.
