    Hey people, I'm looking for one of these babies. Anyone got any idea what
    price I'd be paying for a fully restored katana (to original specs).
    Cheers. I found one for $7200AU

  2. Sounds cheapish to me, if it's really as new.

    No offense, but how do you expect someone in the UK to know what
    they're worth in Oz? I don't think anybody around here knows the market
    down under that well...

    True. I was just thinking that a perfect restored 1100 Katana
    (obviously, assuming it is that good), for the equivalent of 3000 quid,
    is something of a bargain in UK terms. My local dealer last year
    flogged what is the *best* Katana I've seen since they came out
    (utterly original, ultra-low miles, and looking like it was new) for
    6k.

    Privately, I'd expect a perfect original Katana to fetch ukp4000 over
    here, but so few are that good, whatever the adverts say. Problems with
    the early ones include the black chrome exhausts (notoriously
    corrosion-prone, and later changed to bright chrome) and that two-tone
    suede seat.

    A Katana is on my ever-growing wish list.....

    That's fair enough I guess - I just seem to remember that all those
    funny import cars I've been looking at recently seem to have a somewhat
    different price structure compared to the UK.

    Chances are that there's a similar difference in the SOB subculture as
    well.
    Hmm. Rather expensive they are then...

    And that suede seat was a stupid idea, wasn't it?

    Sir wants planning permission for a garage extension then. Mind ewe,
    the house finance commitee may have something to say about that as
    well...
