    Shes still a runner and can handle right hand corners like a demon.

    Did you see all the scrapes on the LHS - they get in shot towards the end. Must have been a hell of a rough trip in the crate, maybe forgot to tie it down?
    Gone riding!

    Even better shot at beginning if you pause it.

    great looking ride and yes, yours really does look more like it is out of the crate than the GSXR which actually looks like it came out of two crates (or possibly bins) . One red and one blue.
    Preservation before restoration - they are only original once

    In Sydney the blue bins are Recylables, the red ones are garbage! ��

    For a Kat with a few miles and used as a daily rider this one is pretty close to "out of the crate". Original engine/frame, screen, clocks, tank, helmet lock, lift handle, 4-2 genuine exhaust, original Kat hand grips and bar weights, genuine mirrors, seat and pillion strap, uncut rear guard and original 1982 Katana ratchet handle rear shocks. As you see it here in the photo this was unrestored and had not be painted or had any mods done to it except for the stainless spokes and the second Katana decal on the front plastic.

    The Kat with the shiney spokes is the same Kat in the top photo having a rest at the Woodford Bakery with two of her W.W. friends.

    Now that is a nice original WW. Is this one of yours Glen?
    Assume it is an 1100

    Thanks Stuart, yes she is my SXZ 1100. Bought this one in 1986 and it'd be a safe bet she will be hanging around for the next 29 years as well.

    Good to hear.
    Told the finance manager when I was rebuilding mine, "you can put it in a glass case ( Allah Snow White style ) atop my grave when I go, but it will never be sold", not making that mistake twice in this world or the next....
