A Note From The Owner...

Here is my 1984 GSX1100 Katana submission for BOTM. Bought it new on 17th October 1984 here in Sydney and been riding it ever since.

It has done around 120,000kms all over Australia including a couple of trips to Tasmania. I've recently restored it including getting the frame sandblasted and powder coated. I've repainted the engine, tank and side covers myself. I've never sprayed candy apple finish before but I'm very happy with the results.
Pretty standard apart from after market 4 into 1 exhaust, reupholstered seat, Krauser panniers, after market blinkers and oxford heated hand grips.

Hope you like it, I sure do!
