Default How to turn the Kat into a "classic styled" Cafe Racer Replica

Hello, been toying with the idea. I love my Katana, preformance, the ride, the reliability, quickness. But I love the look of the old Duccatis, the Triumph Thruxtons, ect.

Has anyone ever attempted or given any thought as to what would be needed to make it look like a old cafe racer?

If I had pgotoshop skills I would start this on my own, but mabey someone here can help. The first things would be to take of the fairing, and get some claasic gages. I assume the second step would be to find a new tank, seat and rear cowl.... and mabey some spoked wheels that would fiyt on our hubs... with sume clubman styled bar mirrors.

Any one done this? Or would it just be miuch easier to sell my Kat and look for a old CB 750?

(I reallllly like my Kat 750).

By the way, I have put over 3 k miles on her since I bought her in July, verry happy.

Any thoughts, suggestions, pics, drawing, sugestions, ect... would be appreciatted.

Ride safe an Happy New Years!

I would like my Katana to resemble something like this....
