Hi Nick
Pic comes through good, only negative is there is only one photo.
Nice looking 84'. Mind if I ask you where you picked it up, ebay / gumtree? It's not one of the Gladstone units is it?
Like the original pipes

Cheers

Hi Stuart,
On my return from Phillip Island after two Ride days in March, picked it up from a private collector in Melbourne after an introduction was made by a good mate of mine in Vic, after i was down there for the World Superbikes in February.

Looks a very nice pickup Nick.
After sitting on the sidelines for almost 30 yrs it's good to see these girls finding homes. It's like a mechanical rescue for Kat's.

But yes it does give us old guys some pleasure.

Thanks Stuart this bike was on my radar for some time and by chance, one phone call the rest was up to me and the collector sold her to me and i am a happy man.

Snow White glass case to entomb this beauty

NO! Dont say that..
Ride it! Its what it was made for, its not a plastic model, use it for what it was made for.
what use is it to anyone in a case.

Surely Dark Lord, even you must agree that one (the best one ) should be preserved for all future generations?
Now I'm not saying that this that one (sorry Nick, but photo's only tell so much) but when we find the one from every year/class, is that not something worth preserving?

Hi Nick. Good score. She is a beauty.:-D I have to side with the darkside on this one. She needs to be riden. (Just like your date on prom night.);)
If we encased all our favorites Kats, the world could not see their beauty. Second, and most important. We would lose the enjoyment of riding them and that's what its all about. :cool:

Yep she is and the bike is a Jap Import and if i did not have the head gasket issue with my '83 750 i would have had this bike at Shocktreatmnet for a full suspension overhaul and then on Club rego.
