Interesting story.  However, Bombardier revised the Sea Doo (not Kawasaki) and offered it to the public in 1988 powered by a 55HP 580 Rotax twin (detuned), as used in the Formula Plus from that era. Kawasaki jet skis first appeared in the early to mid 70's I believe.
I've known Joe quite awhile, he has bought a ton of Ski Doo parts from me over the years.

These are all original except decals. They sat outside on trailer for 20 years. Seats were removed when boards rotted , I was able to bring the material back to color and softness. Gel coat polished back up and chrome cleaned. this is how they turned out.
