  • 1982 Katana shocks

    A long shot question, anyone out there have a set of '82 OEM rear shocks for a Katana that they would part with? Mine are leaking and trying to stay original.

    Thanks

      Good luck!

                          I have a set, they look fine, but no guarantee about how they work.
                          Not sure I want to sell them , but maybe.

                          BUT

                          I just moved home and shop, I may not find them for months.
                          If you don't find a set sooner let me know.
