Hey Jaffa

I'd love to see what your Katana looks like


Ok, here she is. The poor old girl started with Metallic Brown paint, looked shocking.
Battery acid had also leaked onto the fram in a number of places, bit of rust here and there,
generally in poor/very average condition when I bought her.

Front end view. Exhaust off. The centre headers were rusted through.
The local wrecker had a complete set of headers so replacing all four of those, original black chrome mufflers are intact.
Image

Fram and all panels the day I picked them up.

The panels and frame in my garage waiting for the day.

Bits and pieces painted and prepped by me.

The rebuild.

A reasonable idea of what she will look like at the end of the day. Motor is off having the valves done, barrels to be honed and pistons will have new rings. That will do I think.

Those rims look strangely familiar . . .

Yes, they look as something I have already saw. But they are'nt.

No matter, your Katana is very, very nice.
Compliments :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:
