RE: Kawasaki BMX (1974/1975)
I had one of the prototype Kawi BMX bikes made in 1973'74.
My particular unit had a green-painted STEEL frame because
the factory was still figuring out how to weld the
aluminum frames. (They had a rep for breaking when
the pros first tried them).

My dad was managing Kawasaki's accessory division
in California where this first Kawi BMX bike was developed.
Obviously with the full hydraulic telescopic-fork and dual
rear shocks the bike was HEAVY but back then alot of the
BMX courses were rather decisively downhill :)
