Hey Nick
Could you get some profile pics of the girl with the large girdle?

Am trying to get some good pics and ideas for full fairing rebuild.

Cheers

Stuart i have photos of the Kat side on Etc, but if this is any help the lowers and brackets were made at Handcraft Fibreglass at Seven Hills N.S.W. and then i had the lowers painted at Mototec in Smithfield N.S.W.

Thanks Nick

I'll give Handcraft a call. Need brackets to fit a set of second hand Cycle Style lowers. Hopefully they will sell me just the brackets, or at least a pattern so I can make them up.

Any pics would be appreciated as wanting some ideas for the final look.

Cheers
Stuart

No Odin that model was released for Japan only and they raised the bars for more of a comfort ride. It is a pain to get spare Throttle and Clutch cables as they are longer than the '82 750. Thanks to Steve from Old Gold as on one of his many trips to Japan he got me spares from there. The Australian micro film for the '82 750 Aussie compliance with the normal Katana bars does not have any part numbers for my '83 750. Majority of the spares do comply with my 750 with the main hassle being with the cables.

I do like the idea of those High clip-ons for longer rides :cool:

Just remember the higher bars are standard for the '83 750 S2 and if you go that way you will need to order longer throttle and clutch cables from Japan and let me know as i have the part numbers.
