A Note From The Owner...

Here is my 1982 GS1000SZ Katana. I bought this bike off eBay and drove to New Hampshire to pick it up. It is an original 1000cc motor with a Dyna III ignition, Mikuni VM33 smoothbores and K&N pods.

I did a few other bolt on mods such as the Bassani Superbike exhaust, Yoshimura HD ignition cover, Works performance shocks and a Cal-Fab brace swingarm. I also installed 83 GS1100E front fork legs with RaceTech Emulators and Progressive springs, the anti-dive has been blocked off also.

She pulls pretty hard and sounds amazing. I took this bike to Florida and back last may to attend a wedding, what a trip!
