‘I built my own’

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Feature -

by Paul Ber­ry­man In 2013 I fan­cied build­ing a big air- cooled racer for a tilt at the Spa 4-hour en­durance. I’d been re­cently warmed up to the po­ten­tial of the big Kat by a go on a mate’s bike. Steve Adams from Lucky7 had built a bril­liant one on mod­ern run­ning gear, which blew my mind. It was as awe­some to ride as to look at.

A year’s worth of ef­fort later and I had my own, race-ready bike, full of the “wow” that the Katana’s early 80s ‘Star Wars meets Sex Pis­tols’ styling hits you with. On top of that when you get the chassis on these right, they’re damn good to ride too. Q See www.spakat1170.uk for the full Katana re­build
