Thread: my new katana

    my new katana

    hi,
    it only took me nearly 30 years but I now have another katana in my shed.
    The bike came up at the right time and everything just fell into place to get it.
    I know its not a original bike but I have never kept anything original I have owned.
    it had been in storage for 20+ years, I'm just glade it was kept in a nice dry place as its in very good condition for sitting that long.
    I have now started to pull the bike apart and rebuild the brakes and bearings, carbies ( I'm glade he kept the fuel tank full as it has no rust in it).

    I already have 4 bikes but when this came up I couldn't help myself.

    Preservation before restoration - they are only original once
