Talking Uglier Betty - 96 Katana Build Up

I decided to make a thread for my build -

Recap -

Build plan:

haha, there isn't one. I work best organically and am just gonna go with the flow. Currently just searching around to see what I like and try and form some sort of direction. More importantly I am trying to do a little research as to what swing arms, and forks I can swap with relative ease. Probably Gonna leave the motor alone for now though. One thing I definately want to do is totally redo the brakes, but that will be dictated by the wheels, forks and swing arms I decide to do, if any, like I said, no plan. LOL.

Here's the bike when I bought it:



This is after some mods (better, but just not what I am looking for)



This it's current state:

*** Sorry, had all my pics hosted on photobucket and they turned out to be a greedy cunt. Working on getting them all hosted elsewhere, and slowly fixing 5 billion pictures.

Made some progess... Really about all I can do until I figure out what they hell I want to do.


This is me playing around, trying to decide what to do with the sub frame, and whether to keep the battery where it is, as well as whether to use the stock tank and seat. Still undecided.

And yes, that chain is just as bad as it looks. Worse, perhaps.

Ironically, I've been looking for an oil boiler 11, or b12, but having no luck finding one at a price I'm ok with. I'd prefer a b12, more low end grunt, and a power band that is more my style, mid range, I don't redline 6th all that often, so it's not a biggie if I don't have that top end of a GSXR.

I actually have been super busy with my 2 jobs and school, so no progress yet. I stripped a little more, but have not bought any parts, nor made an major decisions yet.

I'm now leaning towards a multi phase build. It's super nice out and I want to ride, so I think I may put it mostly back together, then be able to ride it, and mod it as I go. If I just had time.........!

My largest motivator to do this is that I have it blown apart in my basement (workshop) so I can't do alot of the work I need to, and I need my work benches and table saw back (it's now acting as a work bench too)
