Default pics cont.

The plan is to do a semi-streetfighter, I'm thinking of ditching the lower fairings, bobbing the front fairings, and keeping the side covers and tail. Lots of rattle can residue to get rid of on the frame The tires are junk LOL

You could put her back to stock (restore) as in fix whats broken like the fairings...ect.. and then (baby she'll fly !!) I just don't see the point of
bobba-tizing a perfectly good motorcycle. and you wonder why there aren't any around ? Maybe its the age thing (i'm over 50 ) just my rant and my 2
cents.

I've done a complete resto on a 76 Honda, and the fairings on this thing are destroyed so I figure its cheaper to leave off the worst ones and try to make use of the rest

I realized I left out the part about wanting to do a semi-custom since I'd already done a restoration LOL, I was at work. I do like the facto-resto idea, and was thinking about going that way with it, but the cost and lack of availability of the fairings is quite prohibitive. The Honda I did a few years ago didn't have anything as cool (or expensive) as the Kat, and was a pretty quick and low cost build. The availability of CB750 parts made it go pretty smoothly, too

Welcome to KR. Good luck with the rebuild. I understand it is a lot of work, but it would be cool to get it back to original.
