What makes this a resto-mod? Other than the exhaust and the frame sliders, it looks pretty stock to me. P.S. Does anybody know what the black disc mounted to the muffler bracket is?
Oh yeah… I just noticed the upside down forks and the three/six piston calipers!
It looks like it’s got an oil cooled motor in it too. That’s badass.
I’m assuming it’s registration info. Used to be required in the UK and other places – may still be.
That makes sense. Judging by the scenery, that is definitely not in America. Riviera maybe?
Cape Town South Africa…. Table Mountain in the background for all to see…
Table View beachfront, to be precise.
its a bandit 1200 engine,and I mono shocked the bike.deon coetzee
Wow! Beautiful job Deon. I have always regretted turning down the chance to buy a Katana in the early ’90s. Love that fairing!
I agree – that’s one of the few regrets I have in the motorcycle world. That and a 1974 John Player Special Norton. 🙂
Nice work Dean, really well done. =)
I’ll admit I detested these when they came out, but compared to the cookie cutter motorcycle “designs” we see nowadays, it’s an original, with character.
how can you not love the classic Kat lines, you sir have a beautiful bike
