Product Description

Review

An invaluable resource for any collector, restorer, or just a fan of these fabulous two-stroke motorcycles. - British Dealer News

It's an excellent read and a guide to the entire background and history of these amazing machines that are now highly coveted by collectors and Triples fans. It was worth the wait! - webbikeworld.com

This personal intimacy stands out in the 160 pages of this hardback volume ... with good use being made of period images and brochures, magazine covers as well as some nicely detailed modern shots of restored bikes, both static and in action. The excellent layout allows you to dip in and out of the book at will to research particular areas should you wish to use it as a reference work. --inter-bike.co.uk

I was so wanting this Book to be a fresh informative look at the Triples range but as I turned the pages over it reminded me of Roy Bacon,s Book " Kawasaki - Sunrise to Z1" - Although without covering the single Cylinder Machines.
With each passing Chapter it got worse - The Inaccuaracies were becoming fairly common place - Some being real "Howlers" that really should not have found their way into any book on this subject.
The Pictures were mediocre - Most have been seen many times before - Many from Kawasaki Sales Brochures (Which most were inaccurate anyway!) Even some of the Restored Bikes were totally wrong - Especially the Paint Sets & Decals.
So as a Reference Source it renders the Book virtually useless?.

No sorry until someone can write an accurate Book on the Triples then I would reccomend to keep Roy Bacons Book on the shelf for now & save your Money.

If You are a triple-biker or think to become one or just admire these masterpieces You just got to have this book .
Page after page pure 2-stroke acceleration with masses of great pictures and history over the smoky era of early seventies.

Great book for classic Japanese motorcycle enthusiasts especially us Kwack Triple ravers. Well researched covering all triple models with some nice anecdotal information. Loads of photos, specs, and data. Found out that my Candy Sky Blue 1975 H1F 500 is offered as the least favoured (500) amongst collectors. Not sure about that (I would say that) as they are all rare bikes now (especially good ones) and very collectable! Waiting for the King of Triples (RB from Nottingham, UK) to publish his version now. Anyway, I can recommend this book a good buy.

Altho' this isn't the best book of it's type that I've read, I enjoyed reading it and would imagine that any fan of these bikes would be pleased to own a copy. I'm pleased that I bought it.
