A Note From The Owner...

I found her in 2012 in the weeds beside the previous owner's garage. She had been there about three years just growing moss. I got the bike for 20 bucks along with a GPZ1100 rolling chassis. I did the minimum to get her running and legal and rode her for three years. Due to a leaky tank in 2016, I decided to make some changes and upgrades. Added '88 Katana front suspension and wheels, ZX6 aluminum swing arm, GS700E tank (customized), turned the old tank into a seat cowl and made a new leather seat, Hayabusa exhaust (modified) and Hayabusa rear sets, clip-on handle bars, Katana speedo & tach just to name a few. Found much help from GSR over the past few years. Thank you very much.
