    Katana 750 project

    https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/shoa...981/1137410166

    $5300

    For Sale
    1981 Suzuki Katana 750. Import model.
    The bike was registered by the previous owner, but he let it run out.
    I bought it as a running riding bike. Started collecting lots of OEM parts so I could make it look like new.
    I was originally going to just put the new parts on, but after looking how good the new parts were I decided to get the frame powdercoated ($800) and put it back together.
    Like my other projects... no time or the same enthusiasm... moving on.
    Looking to sell the bike / all parts complete for $5300.
    But if there is enough interest I will sell all parts separately. A quick add up of the parts is double the complete price, but I would rather sell it complete and let someone else have the final bike.
    I can send more pictures of parts if required.

    OEM parts and what it cost me

    Seat $600. Try and find another. If you get your old one reupholstered it will never look the same.
    Front Cowl $500 original colour

    Seat surround $10
    Front guard x2 $125 each
    Rear duct tail blue $175

    Panels under front cowl L/h $37 R/h $28
    Switch block for side cover $120
    Decals, Choke dial, all rubbers $75
    Rear brake reservoir $50
    Fuse box, cover and screw $65
    Bar end weights x2 sets $40 a set

    Other new parts none OEM
    Motoworks complete stainless system $1000 this was a lucky buy. No longer made and is a piece of art
    Seat surround white $100
    Billet levers $100
    Headlight $60
    Plugs, oil filter, 4lt oil $50
    Piggy Back shocks as in picture of the complete bike $100
