    Preservation before restoration - they are only original once

They'll keep an Old School SZ (real, not like Derek's Hybrid 7-fiddy) 750 honest everyday however, the price could be pushing it? I am surprised Frankie hasn't bid on this one, he loves the JDM 400 Kat.
    Yes, I would like to get one as well

    I'd consider replacing the wee beastie with one of these one day if she ever dies... how awesome would it be having a wee one for the commute and the big one for the weekends??
    1984 Katana 7/11 - done at last!

    1982 GS450E - not quite stock

    One of each wouldn't be bad.
    There's a guy at work with a CB400 and whilst it doesn't have the power of the 1100 it doesn't stuff around. We usually get stuck at a set of lights that let us have a drag race onto the motorway around a long(ish) right hand sweeper. The Kat will pull away but once I'm at terminal velocity for the corner, he'll start reeling me in.
    They're a great size bike if you fit.

    I have a nose cone for a 400 if anyone is looking, it was bolted/bodged to the 1100 that became the black Kat.

    Is it smaller than the 11's?
