on the Kawasaki Z1 at Daytona. Features rider Yvon Duhamel.
This is one segment from the restored video player " Kawasaki Good Times
Theatre". The Good Times Theatre video players were used at Kawasaki
dealerships in the 1970's for customer viewing on the showrooms.
This restored video features great Kawasaki moments from the mid to late
1970's. Audio quality on the restored video is fair, but clearly
understandable. This is a great piece of Motorcycle History. Hope you enjoy
