The Kawasaki F9 Project, from junk to jewel
Welcome to The F9 Project! In Barn Fresh season 2 the video series delves into a Kawasaki F9 (350cc) Big Horn and turns it into an F81M and F21M "Green Streak" inspired race bike. This series will focus on performance and handling rather than a full on restoration. The whole idea behind this build is to re-create what an typical rider, that could not afford and exotic European race bike, might do in 1972 to improve or turn his Big Horn into more of a race ready bike for TT or scrambles rather than a lackadaisical enduro that the factory bike is. The focus is not to make the ultimate Big Horn, but to make an improved version using period correct parts just as someone on a limited budget might do. Within the videos and video pages there is information, specifications and pictures to help show the scope of this project. Of course there are many ways to modify any particular bike, this series will show what I chose to modify and change on this bike. You won't want to miss this! The video above will give a broad overview of the entire series. (Pages/Links will become active when episodes are released) Also check out the links to pages with information I used in modifying my F9 Big horn. Be sure to check out all my other videos!
