LEAN, MEAN AND LIME GREEN - RACING WITH KAWASAKI - VOLUME ONE
No race fan that ever heard the ear-searing rasp of a Kawasaki three-cylinder two-stroke racer passing by at speed will have ever forgotten it. Unmissable and unmistakable in their bright lime-green livery, the Kawasaki triples in the hands of riders like Gary Nixon and Yvon Duhamel were among the most successful racing machines of the nineteen-seventies.
This is the most complete story ever told of racing with Kawasaki USA - the team on which most of the Japanese factory focus was concentrated during that unforgettable decade of Formula 750 racing – a category that, for much of its history, even eclipsed the appeal of the Grand Prix classes.

LEAN, MEAN AND LIME GREEN - RACING WITH KAWASAKI - VOLUME TWO
The books in the Lean, Mean and Lime Green series are without doubt the most complete story ever told of racing with Kawasaki in the USA. This Volume Two covers the important years from 1978 until 1983 that saw the memorable emergence of the Superbike class in America.
It was this class in which the talents were developed of future Grand Prix World Champions and superstars, Eddie Lawson, Freddie Spencer and Wayne Rainey and all three of them were talent-spotted and signed for Team Kawasaki USA by Randy Hall, the author of both books in this series. As team manager and development engineer he was always at the heart of the action, whether at the racetrack or behind the scenes.
