My future father in law gave me this 1973 Kawasaki F11 250. It has been stored in his barn for 33 years and hasn't ran since. The bike is in really good shape. The bikes odemeter reads there is 3,800 miles on it. All parts are there and all original and none broke. The original color is orange. Of course all the rubber is dry rotted. I have recently cleaned and restored the gas tank, it was surprisingly clean on the insides. I have rebuilt the carb and went through all ignition parts and everything is in working condition. I brought the motor to life once again.
I am doing a complete rebuild of this bike back to its original condition, I want everything in the rebuild to be exact. Paint on tank and fenders is a little faded. I am repainting but what I am trying to learn what the original color of the fenders are supposed to be according to the Frame # or VIN #. The front and rear fenders are silver, and the tank is orange. The finders that are silver look original, they do NOT look painted. I am trying to find info on this. Did Kawasaki release and sell a limited addition color in 1973? Orange and silver? I have seen pictures of my bike in Kawasaki green and Kawasaki orange, BUT cannot find pics of a 1973 Kawasaki F11 250 in Orange and silver in color. So is this the original color? If somebody could inform me or help me learn more about this bike, I would greatly apreciate it. I have all info on the bike if you should ask. Thank you Jeremy
