    That is debatable but you are spot on with the weld.

    or I've got a GSX1100 frame that has had the rear tank mount cut out of it.
    Not sure of how many brackets would need to be added and/or adjusted to make the bodywork fit that frame.
    I'd be looking to build one with more modern components so originality is not an issue for me.

    Isn't the frame wider on a GSX1100 at the back? The rest should be manageable.
    I've read of GSX's being dressed up like Kats but no idea of the work required.

    Same width - I just confirmed with a quick measurement of my two.

    Makes sense - Kat was built on a GSX setup. Suzuki wouldn't have rejigged - especially considering used same swinger, shock set-up and rear wheels etc.

    .......that's why a Kat is just a GSX with different kit really.

    So you reckon you could fit it all up with some brackets added? I'm sure the seat bracket at the back is different.

    there are differences - below tank at seat base, outside of down tubes, rear peg hangers and i think the seat catch bracket - but all up if you built a Kat based GSX - once you had a Kast frame you could swap important bits like engine, carbies, swinger , wheels etc across.

    Hey Richard. You might be able to use the brackets that I cut off my track Kat. We can check out the ones you need and carefully remove as close and neatly as pos.
    The foot peg hangers were butchered but you wont be building a stocker so that would not matter.
