Found on eBay: 1982 Suzuki Katana

Reader Contribution by Landon Hall

One bike that we never get sick of seeing is the original Suzuki Katana. Love it or hate it, the design still draws attention today, just like it did more than 25 years ago when it was introduced.

The 1,000cc Katana was produced for just one year, so it’s not every day that you find one for sale. This example, though not perfect, has most of its original parts and appears to be a good runner in decenet shape.

According to the auction, the bike has a new battery, the carbs have been cleaned and the tank has been cleaned. It’s missing the stock pipe, windscreen, original brake lines and the tank has been touched up.
