City: Mission Viejo
Congratulations to Nick Cooke of Mission Viejo for winning Bike of the Month with his 1973 Kawasaki H2 750.
Nick won a Mr. Pete's Grill gift certificate.
Nick has a special talent for buying Bike of the Month winners, he won last month with his 1971 Kawasaki H1 500.
He purchased the H2 off of Craig's List nine months ago from a guy in Pasadena.
It's 100% original, numbers matching aside from new paint (3 years old) and some chrome work. Nick has been cleaning it up a bit more since he's owned it.
Nick seems to prefer the Japanese bikes these days. Along with his H2, he has a 1971 Kawasaki H1 500 triple, a 1985 Yamaha RZ350 and a 1986 Suzuki RG500.
Nick has lived in the US for 25 years, originally from England, he has owned many British bikes including a Norton Commando that he rode for 25 years.
He won't be winning Bike of the Month again soon, all of his other bikes are too new.
Thanks Nick for bringing it to our meet. See all the photos in our November Gallery.
