Kawasaki KH100 : ‘The Pickle’

Despite it’s small size, the engine was tuned; with a big rebore and a Wiseco piston providing some more punch. A Uni-Pod filter and the standard KH100 exhaust take care of the air and gases entering and exiting the engine.
Aesthetic upgrades took the form of freshly powdercoated components, new grips, upgraded controls and a beautifully hand-crafted copper oil tank.
