    I owned 2 of these bikes the best one was a 1975 H1F MKIII 500cc Candy Gold color ( I loved this bike) I put around 25,000 miles on it before selling it about 2 years later to buy a 1978 Z1R-TC, before that I owned a 1971 H2 MKIV ( it was really beat did not keep it long) Very fast bikes that did not handle worth a crap, bad fuel mileage, bad brakes, bad seating position for comfort. But a whole lot of super torque-y fun. I remember paying $875 for the MKIII in 1978, I believe the MKIV was around $350.00
    When they introduced the H1 MKIII was the quickest production motorcycle made just under 13 second quarter mile.

    jckosnow- I don't know how old you are or if you have ridden one of these, but in their day...That was the fastest production motorcycle in the world. Lizrdbrth had his experiences on one, I have too. I had one to 140 mph with 2 people on it and also did a few 50mph+ wheelies. These are screaming machines, not a lot of them around anymore or their riders. A lot of people got killed on these. It was flat out dangerous, but what a rush!! It could leave your knee's knocking and your whole body shaking with adreneline after a wild ride. Honestly, they had more power than you can even describe and once you got to around 4 or 5 thousand rpms and were still gunning it, it just came alive, you were at redline before you could blink, on one wheel.

    Yeah, they were really something!! I've learned to slow down over the years and aren't as crazy as I once was. Now days, I am perfectly happy plugging along at 40 or 50 mph. I don't even like going on the highway anymore. I love riding so much and always have. I only want one thing now days and that is to live to ride tomorrow! I'd love hearing from any other members who happened to ride one of these old mach 3's.

    Keith, you gotta read Lizrdbrth's story about these. I forgot where it is, but it's worth reading and funny. You would get a kick out of it.

    This should make any of us old farts who ever rode one cringe. lol.

    I have seen one of these in the flesh. The only clue that they weren't born this way is a line of gorgeous tig work where the extra cylinder was tacked on. It's beautiful work, but the thought of riding one with an extra 250cc's just makes my butt pucker. lol. But the guy will build you one just like it if your affairs are in order.
