Thanks for all the compliments, it makes me feel good to know others like it as much as I do even though I don't care if someone absolutely hated it or not LOL

It's too bad that you didn't get it finished the way you wanted, but 'fighters are never done. You'll be rockin' your dream in no time man! Good job!

This is probably my favorite, I love the pics with your friends not modded katana, its just insane how much better yours looks than stock. It honestly makes me regret buying my gsx-r600 and spending more on that than a katana and streetfightering it. Really nice job man.

I dont really want to tell local people what I started with. I like letting them look at it and try to figure it out. But its always a great reaction when I tell them and they actually know what a Katana looks like haha

Dudad, Did you make that kickstand or is it just at a goofy angle? but it looks twisted like a snake.
