Kawasaki Motorcycles ruled the roads of Pakistan back in the day. In the late ’70s, 80’s, and early 90’s Kawasaki was the motorcycle to have. This rags-to-riches story is about the restoration of an old Kawasaki Motorcycle known as the Kawasaki Sports 100.
Kawasaki Sports 100:
Originally known as Kawasaki G7T, The motorcycle came with a Sports badge on its side covers and hence it got the name Sports 100. At that time Kawasaki was all about making fast overpowered motorcycles and G7T was also no different. It had a 12-horsepower 2-stroke engine with a 5-speed return shift gearbox. The motorcycle was just a lil heavier than 100kgs but had an amazing power-to-weight ratio.
