Hello to all,
Ive been lurking in the shadows for quite some time now looking at all the amazing work that's done by the members of this forum. I figured it was my time to join.
I started riding on a Suzuki vz800 last year, had fun riding for a season and decide to switch over to the fighter world and I know have a 2000 katana 600. I know, she's ugly and heavy, but then again I don't wear a size small shirt or model for Hollister so who am I to complain :cool: it may not be the ideal bike for many, but I'm just happy to be on a bike period. Plus, the way I see it, I'm only improving the bike and her huge gap. It's only uphill from here.

Heres my picture link, still sorting out how to use photobucket with my tablet and phone so I apologize. So far I've swapped a 03 tail and tail light, battery, oil & filter change, air filter change and spark plugs and wires.
Ps. Feel free to call the Kat an ugly bike, lol but only if I get pointed towards the right direction to fix the gas tank gap. Then I'll consider it advice. Looking forward to learning from you guys!

Man, that's an ugly bike! :LolLolLolLol: Just kidding dude. Welcome in finally, ya lurker.

I see the gap you're talking about. I guess there's a piece of fairing missing? You could always ditch that tail to something slimmer and skin over the bottom of the tank with something solid to make it look complete. Just a quick thought. I dunno.

Lots of good inspiration in the builds section. Good luck on your project. :)

Thanks! The fairings are ugly imo, but I'm thinking on doing something similar to a build I saw here where about 1/4 of the fairings were used abused and cut while covering the gap. It was great bike, can't remember who it belonged too.

Eatabullet- that's the one. I couldn't believe it when I first saw it, I was amazed at the skill level and dedication it took to build that bike.

Thanks for the welcomes guys, I may not post much for now, but I'll be around reading and learning as much as I can from all the great builders on this forum. I have much to learn but I know I've come to the right place so I'm sure I'll be alright :cfrocks:
