I think the one on the right is a Kawasaki A1 Samurai or A7 Avenger. The one on the left is the Viper bike.

Had an oportunity to ride a KAW 750 once-hands down, absolutely, positively the scariest thing I EVER rode! It was like riding a Brahama Bull on acid you didn't drive it you sort of tried to herd it.
A couple weeks later I got to ride a YAMAHA rotary-smooth as old cogniac and linear acceleration that never tapered off or quit.

Kind of into triples. Before and after. Not a P51 but still a lot of fun.

Haven't been to any shows. It is a 74. The colors in 74 did not appeal to me so painted it a 73 color. Did all the work myself except the crank rebuild, boring and chrome plating. To my knowledge it is the only one in my area, scarry fast.

I bet that little radial engine is one overheating son of a gun in that motorcycle application.

How often do you think that bike gets much above idle RPM?

Here's a question no one has asked yet, what does the frame for this stump puller look like?
