Yeah Firko they're both in the US now with the owner of Nightmare Racing i think. Originally one went to England and eventually ended up in the US.
I remember when they were for sale for 6 or 7k, seemed like a lot of money at the time.

I was also offered these two SR's at the time By Alan but couldn't come up with the cash. I think I still have the photo's he sent me of them somewhere.

.................................... The big problem was that the original magnesium OW cases had long ago died but perseverance paid off and a complete OW26 engine has been found and purchased from Holland.


your kidding, how about that.  :o

Hi guys just wanted to inform you Im the Proud New Owner of Ex Jimmy Weirnert's 1978 Factory SR380KX,that was shipped here by Kawasaki Australia for Trev Williams to have a Open Bike in Mr MX.

I rang Trev to confirm and he said there was only ever 2 made and the other is in Canada as far as he can remember.

He said it came for sale once and missed it by 5 mins and was spewing.

It still has Wiernet stamped on the handle bars and under the seat, Trev said Jimmy hated that bike, when they got it here they put a longer Swingarm on it for MX and the Motor was a weapon.

Its been under long resto, and has only a few things to finish like wheels e.tc, all the main stuff engine, frame, cosmetics is done, cant wait to finish it.

Its going to make a great edition to my MX, Off-Road, Dakar Museum, Trev will launch the bike and sign it for me and another piece of our great MX History saved from the scrap heap.

Stay Safe Rosco
