Kawi 250 Triple

My old friend Jess and I shuttled this little Kawi from Flagstaff to Rancho Palos Verdes, SoCal during the winter of what must have been '83. He was fed up with cold snowy conditions when his only means of transportation was this bike so he followed me back to warmer climes. It doesn't take long, riding in cold weather and you want to stand up and get some circulation going. Later, Jess owed me $400 and offered me the bike in payment. I wanted nothing to do with the little ring-ding and demanded cash only, which I never did see. At the time I was riding Triumph Bonnevilles and this Kawi was way beneath me. Now, I would love to have it although, I remember it being gutless and having pathetic brakes.
