Default one of a kind mods

looking to one of a kind mods any ideals. I have the know how and the tools just looking for all kinds of ideals. I would like to have a good ideal what I'm going to end up with before I start. I hate going back and doing sh&t over.

One of a kind, your imagination is your limit. Tools needed will depend entirely on what you want to do.

No offence to Jim.. (that fairing work is super!)

But IMO BearKat and Watari have set the bar for
making a Katana into something truely one of a
kind..
I mean Waltari could make millions selling his
formula for invisable mid pipe material to the
Government!!


I take the view that if you want your Katana to be one of a kind.. People shouldn't right away know it is a Katana.. They have to look at it close to see..
"ahh look that tail light" or " that is a Kat tank and frame".. Bling and paint are just that..
But as Jim said:

Not offended..... well maybe just a little.
I didn't realize that there were different degrees of "One of a kind".
I sorta thought one meant one

Everyone has their own vision I guess. For me I didn't want a RFGixxerZKat, I wanted a Katana that was unlike any other in the world, not a Katana that nobody would know was a Katana. Still 90% of the people who see it don't know what it is and of those who know it's a Kat most are still stumped and amazed. It's taken over 2 years to get it to this point and it's not done yet. The entire bike is a mixture of pre and post 98 Kat parts. Hardly bling and paint.

Waltari and Bear may have set the bar for extreme modding but were all in the one of a kind club.

Sorry Jim..
I realize all the hard work that was involved in you Kat..
I would never put it in the "paint and bling" catagory..
I didn't mean to imply that..
And IMO yes, one of a kind is one of a kind.
I guess I have a strong opinion of what makes something one-of-a-kind..
My taste is my taste.. I won't appologise for it but I don't want to be offensive either..

And that is how it should be.. Making your vision your reality..
Me? I never wanted a Kat... I didn't really want a Gixxer either..
I did know that no matter what I bought it would never be stock..
I also knew that the Kat was a super bargin (in general and mine in
particular)..
