Got a picture from the Legend Himself. Tony Nicosea.

Tony 's Nicosia's Kaw. H-1,Tony Set the AHRA World Record at Loins Drag Strip 1969 111.38 MPH / 12.61 ET it was the fastest St. M/C !

For those of you who don't know much about Tony he is the man who put the wow in Kawasaki.  He is a living legend in the Kawasaki Triples community.  Back when these were new bikes and Kawasaki was looking to make a splash he was the rider they turned to at the dragstrip.  Here's another page I have on him with some more great shots!

From the Wikepedia page:
It was the quickest production motorcycle at the time. When motorcycle journalists expressed some disbelief, Kawasaki suggested they take a new H-1 to the drag strip. Using a regular production model with only 7 miles on it, Tony Nicosia ran the quarter mile in 12.96 seconds at 100.7 mph for the press to witness (the official figure was 12.4 secs by Mike Wenzel - quite believable on a well run in machine). Tony Nicosia set many world records with Kawasaki triples over the following years, including some land speed records at Bonneville Salt Flats

Here he is in all his glory. Thanks Tony!
