1973 Gary Nixon H2R Photos

In 1973 Erv Kanemoto received a production H2R for Gary Nixon to ride in the US AMA events. During the course of the year Nixon was able to win 3 national events. I purchased the frame for this bike late 2002, which I believe is Nixon's 1973 frame. Since then I have sourced many of the parts for this bike including cases, engine internals, carbs, ignition, and the wheels. The bike is in a slightly updated form from the Daytona event (start of the season) having aluminum front brake disks. Later in the year it received Morris magnesium wheels.

Here are a set of photos that show the rebuild. I purchased the core parts in September 2002 and you can see the progress to the completed bike in November 2003.
