In 1972 and 1973 Graham Bailey rode a Tartan Kawasaki. For the next two years Roger Winterburn rode the machine (then painted red). Does anyone have any pictures or information about this machine which they can share with the current owner.

In the early seventies Paul Dunstall wrapped a purpose built frame around an H1R motor so it could be well it, or of course a copy.

Yes it is the Dunstall Kawasaki. It was built for the start of the 1970 season. The frame was made by Jim Lee of Birstall, Yorkshire. It was indeed designed and built by Alan Baker (financial backing from Dunstall). It did not use a H1R engine, but a road H1 unit. The only modification initially was a transistorised ignition system for it. Initially it produced 52 bhp, but it was planned to develop it with the aid of Fred Hadley. The engine did get some H1R components along the way, but I believe these are no longer present on it.
