‘I built my own’
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
