Yeah - it's huge isn't it.

I remember the Dyson body-kitted kwacks coming out back then, seeing one in the flesh and thinking it was like something out of a sc-fi movie:

Hi that's a 750 2 stroke Kwaka, evil bike with evil body kit, you won't find one now unless you go looking in hedges

2 stroke 750 with skinny tyres bad brakes and dodgy handling....could make for very interesting riding.....and numerous changes of jocks....:woots:

Could be wrong but I'd nearly put money on that being the H2's little brother the humble 250. No two ways about it all the same, it was just pig-ugly.

The only other race-replica available at the time was the HamYam (in vintage Kodachrome specially for you Gixxer :) ):

Looked more like a proper racer. Those pipes would have made your ears bleed though - worse than any TZ.
